Celtic midfielder Joe Ledley insists there is everything to play for in the SPL title race despite slipping 10 points behind Rangers.
With Gers claiming a 1-0 win over Hibs last weekend and Hearts upsetting the Bhoys, Ally McCoist's side extended their lead at the summit.
Some believe Celtic have drifted too far behind their arch rivals while manager Neil Lennon has conceded his position is under threat if things do not improve.
However, Ledley is not willing to write off the league campaign just yet, stating there are still three more Old Firm matches to come along with their game in hand.
"Obviously the supporters have always been behind us from minute one so I would ask them to keep doing that and I think all of us in the team believe we can do it," he told the club's official website.
"We were disappointed with the results lately but we are all together in this to get back on track. It's still early doors in the beginning of the season so hopefully we can get together and get on a good run.
"There are loads of games left. We still have to play Rangers three times and Hearts three times, so there are still loads of points to go for. It's going to be difficult but there are still loads of games to play."
Ledley missed the Hearts reverse with a groin injury and, while he has been forced to sit out two international matches with Wales, he expects to be back for the Hoops' next outing.
"My injury is much better now and is coming on well," he continued. "I would have missed another match and it's obviously good for me as I'll be back playing for Celtic, but I'm going to miss the next two Wales games which is disappointing."
