Celtic skipper, Scott Brown, has insisted the club have steps to go as he fired a title warning – the Celts, have 19 points in their seven games.
They can go top if they win the game in hand, but Brown reckons they are only getting started.
He said: “We’re delighted to be back up there and I don’t think we’ve hit top gear yet.
“Sometimes you have to grind these games out and just get the results.
“You don’t worry about the performances at the end of the season if you’ve won the league.
“It’s all about points on the board, obviously. But we want to play better.
“We want to make sure we control games from start to finish a lot better.
“But everyone has to understand you won’t always be at your 100 per cent best. There are times when the level will slip.
“There are times when you’re under the cosh a bit. That’s when you need to be focused and well-drilled in your formation.
“The manager has brought in a lot of players and there have been changes in formation.
“So it’s been great that we have been able to keep winning matches.”
He also insists that where Rangers is doesn’t even register with Celtic. He said: “We just concentrate on ourselves. We don’t worry about anyone else.
“We always had to take it one game at a time.
“There was nothing we could do about the two games we missed.
“But we’ve managed to win one of them, beating St Mirren, and then we got another three points against Livingston.
“There is a lot of pressure on us all the time. People expect us to win every single game.
“But it’s always hard work and we’ve done extremely well.”
