With today’s news of a double whammy in Scottish football aimed at Celtic, Rangers fans have every right to feel just a little smug with the developments in Glasgow.
First, news broke that Celtic’s hyped-up pursuit of David Turnbull had fallen through thanks to some bizarre medical discovery which requires preventative surgery, then Rangers confirmed Joe Aribo.
If we’re talking about a day good for Rangers and bad for Celtic, Thursday the 27th would be it.
Now, this is not us overly zealous to laugh at ill-fortune over there – they’re still considerably ahead of us in many ways and the proof in the pudding ultimately is the results and league position once SPL business is up and running again.
But come on – we are allowed to point and laugh after a calamitous attempt at a transfer has left a young boy right where he is in the shire of Motherwell, while Rangers make without doubt the signing of the window so far in the £250,000 transfer of £7M+ rated Joe Aribo.
It’s a good day for Rangers, and frankly us fans haven’t had a lot of one-upmanship occasions over Celtic this past decade.
So gubbing them twice, before they failed miserably to sign a new player, before we successfully do seems grounds to be immature and enjoy it.
While Celtic still won the lot last season, they’re probably going to lose one of their key players, while Rangers appear to be building in the right direction for next season.
Bring it on. Well, with the players who pass medicals, we reckon…
