Kenny Miller believes this is Celtic’s year if they plan on making a comeback to bring the title back to the east end of Glasgow.

The Hoops were worthy of a 2-1 win yesterday over Aberdeen for their first league victory since September 11. Jota’s 84th-minute strike was enough to seal all three points after Lewis Ferguson cancelled out Kyogo Furuhashi’s first-half opener.

The win keeps Celtic in sixth, just six points behind Glasgow rivals, Rangers, who currently occupy top spot after their 2-1 victory over Hibernian.

Speaking on Sky Sports News this morning, He said: "It was a much-needed win yesterday and it eases a bit of the pressure on Ange because it was an unacceptable start.

"I think it was 10 points out of 21 before yesterday, it wasn't good enough and Ange will know that.

"The Celtic fans are demanding but that was a big win for them yesterday."

He added: "If there was a year where someone was going to mount a challenge then it would be this year.

"Celtic look vulnerable and Rangers aren't at top form.

"But if I was one of the other teams, that would be a worry. Rangers aren't at top form, but they're still getting wins.

"Once they do hit top form, if they're still top of the league, they'll be hard to stop."
