Miller backs Celtic for title comeback

Former Celtic striker Joe Miller has tipped the Clydesdale Bank Premier League title race to go to the last day of the season — with the Parkhead club emerging as champions.

Tony Mowbray's much-changed side, boosted by the arrival of loan signing Robbie Keane, went within eight points of SPL leaders Rangers with a 2-0 win over Hearts at Parkhead on Wednesday night.

Ahead of the Hoops’ trip to Aberdeen tomorrow (12.30), Miller said: “I don't think it's too big a gap. There have been gaps in previous seasons which Rangers and Celtic have clawed back.

“It's all down to confidence and who has the best run-in between now and the end of the season.

“But I think it will go to the last game of the season — and it will go to Celtic.”
