However, the Celtic boss said: "I won't sit here and try to play any psychological games. I am only interested in my own team trying to win their games. "I can't affect what goes on elsewhere. We have to win on Wednesday and win on Saturday afternoon and then see what happens.
"We also have a Scottish Cup semi-final to look forward to in between the league games and so we keep going. In reference to any other teams, they'll do what they do.
"You can only nibble away by winning your games, but sometimes other teams keep winning their games too and you don't reduce the gap. We can only play our part."
