Strachan cools title talk

Celtic manager Gordon Strachan cooled talk of the SPL title race being back on after his side's 2-1 Old Firm victory over Rangers. The Bhoys kept their title hopes alive thanks to a stoppage-time winner by Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink at Parkhead on Wednesday evening. However, despite the victory they remain one point adrift of Rangers having played two games more. "All the result does is make us feel better about ourselves that we've won the game," said Strachan. "We have five games left but I don't feel as if winning them all will guarantee the title." Meanwhile, Strachan insisted he was unaware of a post match bust-up which led to the dismissals of David Weir and Gary Caldwell after the final whistle. "I've not got a clue what happened," he added. "For me to comment on something I don't know anything about, would be like me talking about politics. "I never saw anything there."
