There is a reason that back-to-back trebles have never been done before and it is because of just how difficult an achievement it is.

But I have to say that I think Celtic’s win at Ibrox last weekend is the springboard that can go on and propel them to that level of domestic success. I also think that the manner in which the players and supporters celebrated the win against Rangers will tell its own story about the fact that they too believe the league title itself has been rubberstamped.

Like last season, there will be no-one within the club shouting about it. There will be no big proclamations that are made on Celtic’s behalf now but privately they will appreciate that the chance to do something special is well within their grasp.

Sunday’s game also made my mind up about Odsonne Edouard too – I think if I would be in Celtic’s shoes I’d be ready to put in that offer for him this summer.

I wasn’t entirely sure about Edouard but in recent weeks I think we have seen that he has got something about him. I thought he took his goal very well but even his temperament in an environment and encounter like that would auger well, particularly given his age and relative inexperience.

And while we still look at £7m and think it is a helluva lot of money the bottom line is that strikers don’t come cheaply. If you have already had the boy in for a full season and have had a chance to look at him and work with him then you will have an indication of what you believe his potential is – and we all know that Brendan Rodgers as a coach enjoys that element.

As I have said often enough he is the guy who works with the players day in and day out and there is no question then that you see things that not everyone is privy to. He will be well placed to make the call but for me I think it would be a good buy this summer.

You can go out into the transfer market and spend £10m on a striker but he won’t come with any guarantee. You can spend as much as you like but every signing you make has an element of a gamble about it.

The other thing about Edouard is that he and Olivier Ntcham – who ran the show in the middle of the park for me – as well as Moussa Dembele have established a clear camaraderie on and off the pitch.

I always feel that is important with young players because it just helps them to feel settled. I think the three of them were spotted on the way to the airport after the game on their way back to Paris for a few days and they were entitled to go and celebrate their part.

I thought Ntcham was the lynchpin for Celtic. Scott Brown was the Scott Brown that we have come to expect and I thought he had a fine game and really showed his leadership qualities, particularly when Celtic went down to ten men.

But Ntcham is really coming to the fore now for me. We all knew that he hadn’t played too much first-team football when he first arrived but we are seeing the best of him now.

In terms of the overall picture, it is difficult to underplay the psychological aspect of Sunday’s win and the manner in which it was achieved.

What you also have to give consideration to is that Celtic now have so many players just ready to step back in for the run-in.

Patrick Roberts, Stuart Armstrong and Leigh Griffiths will all be expected to feature with the former two just about set to in again and you just fancy Celtic to go and kick on now.

And if last weekend’s game showed anything it was the difference in quality between the sides, particularly in the middle of the park and up front.

I just don’t think you could compare Moussa Dembele with Alfredo Morelos. Dembele just has a quality that is a significant level above and you saw that not just with his goal but his overall play.

I have never been shy in quoting my admiration of the striker and I do believe that he is a forward who can go on and play at a particularly high level. I just don’t see it with Morelos.

There was the chance that he missed right at the death – and credit to Scott Bain and Jack Hendry for their part there – but there was also the miss earlier on in the second period which came just before Edouard had scored for Celtic.

It really underlined the quality on show for each side.
