The cock-a-hoops Celtic fans (see what I did there), will be desperate to try and hold onto their record-breaking manager Brendan Rodgers for several more years, and so am I!
When Rangers were eliminated from the SPL in 2012, it soon became bhoys against boys (I’ve done it again), to continue winning the most uncompetitive league in the world.
Celtic don’t even need the help of our abysmal referees to assist them, but Rangers could certainly do without their continuous hindrance. Shocking penalty and red card decisions were piling up against us over the whole season. All we ask for is honesty, so it must stop.
Brendan, or whoever took over managing Celtic, would have been able to work wonders against, “Non-competitive opposition”, especially with the financially impoverished Ibrox club finding it hard to attract a top class manager, to make them competitive again.
Celtic’s notorious fans, who hate everything Rangers, are now convinced that Brendan will remain in charge for many successful doubles or treble years to come. If he does that, he will have absolutely no ambition left.
Since Rodgers took over the reins at moneybags Celtic when the light blues were down and almost out, any team finishing 2nd were miles behind the east enders. To the Proclaimers, they were 500 miles behind the Parkhead club!
We had to endure the incompetence of Ally McCoist, Mark Warburton, imposter Pedro Caixinha and interterm manager Graeme Murty. In fairness to them, I am sure they did their very best, but ultimately each succumbed to failure.
Rodgers has had an easy ride since he arrived – not a single side in Scotland has been close – meanwhile his feeble management has been exposed in Europe on embarrassing levels – far too good for Scotland, a shambles on the continent.
But now, at long last, it looks like the light blues will resemble a good footballing side full of players who know how to win games consistently. Especially if Gerrard can pull off most of his identified signing targets and improve the rest of the Rangers squad still at the club.
All the bluenoses will enjoy hearing Brendan’s lame excuses if he has to deal with Stevie’s new Rangers side, displaying real opposition and closing the gap this season!
Stevie Ger might just have broken the limbo state of Scottish football, and we can’t wait to see our Rangers go toe to toe with Celtic at long last.
