Could Motherwell or Dundee UTD have a say in the SPL title race?

Of course not you idiot. Some token ex-Old Firm playing Glaswegian half-wit was talking on sky sports the other day about how Celtic were pretty much nailed on to win the league, despite being a point behind Rangers (all be it with a game in hand) and with about 4 games left to play. Embarrassed I am to admit that for a few minutes I thought, "hey, this ex footballer doesn't know what he's talking about, I'm sure Motherwell or Dundee United, perhaps Hearts can get a result against one of the Old Firm? Surely they won't just win every game?"

Then this happened Motherwell 0-5 Rangers & Celtic 4-1 Dundee United

Look at that league table. Look at it, what's the point? Can we just get rid of Rangers and Celtic? I'm bored of it being a two-horrible-horses race every season. I'm bored of the sectarianism. I'm bored of listening to them talk about how refs favour one over the other. I'm bored of seeing their scummy fans in the newspapers and on my TV screen every day. I'm bored of pretending to care about Aberdeen getting the third spot. I'm bored of the top/bottom six split. I'm bored of cornflakes. I'm bored of stupid old men trying to talk to me in pubs about this awful standard of football. I'm bored of Neil Lennon and his gingervitis. I am so bored of it all, I might just watch my Aberdeen Team of the Decade (1980s) video on a constant loop until I become old and decrepit and die in my favourite chair surrounded by empty cans of Tennants and used needles. Being Scottish I live on cheap lager, heroin and the odd can of Irn-Bru.
