Scott Brown believes he is playing in the best Celtic side since he joined the club in 2007 - but will not admit that a potential 23-point lead over Rangers would guarantee them the Scottish Premier League title.
Neil Lennon's men have won 18 domestic games in succession and victory over Dunfermline at home on Wednesday and a win over Motherwell on Saturday would give Celtic that massive advantage over the champions before the administration-hit Ibrox club travel to Inverness on Sunday.
The Hoops skipper, who signed from Hibernian for £4.4 million five years ago, said: ''I think it is the best we've played and it's the best bunch of lads as well. I've said that since the start of the season.
''We have been getting better and better and getting more confident each and every game. But the title is definitely not won until somebody gets the trophy.
''I think it would mean a lot to the lads [to be 23 clear] but it is definitely not over. It would take a lot [to lose it] but it has happened before, we have been 10, 12 points clear and we have had it clawed back.
''So there is still a lot to play for. We are on a good run and we want to keep it going and have a big game against Dunfermline.''
Manager Neil Lennon insists he is targeting trophies rather than records as his Celtic side steamroller their way to a possible treble.
With little doubt as to where the championship will end up this season, thoughts have turned to records and three points against the Pars will be Celtic's 13th consecutive win in all competitions - equalling the mark of Martin O'Neill's side of 2004, in which Lennon was a lynchpin.
However, the Parkhead boss said: ''It is something I haven't been aware of but if we can do that then great.
''Martin was and is an exceptional manager and he had a very good team here at the time and to emulate that record would be fantastic for this group of players.
''But these numbers mean nothing. The performances and results mean everything to me, the records don't mean a great deal at all.''
