We’re not interested in Celtic forums, nor Celtic fans, nor what’s happening in the East End – we’ve only ever discussed them when it affects us, and that’s why we’re just slightly allowing ourselves to imagine the meltdown and ‘Lennon Out’ vibes among those at Celtic Park after today’s wonderful result.
Let’s face it, Brendan Rodgers was the best thing to happen to Celtic since Martin O’Neill – he produced a machine of a side, and we as Rangers fans hated it.
He’s gone to Leicester amidst smears upon his character by his former fans and guess what, his King Power side are having a better season now than they did under Ranieri when they inexplicably won the thing. If it wasn’t for his own former side having the most ridiculously perfect season, Leicester would be strong favourites to take the title again. He is, whether Celtic fans (and formerly Rangers fans) like it or not, a magnificent football manager.
But back home? Lennon came in, and Ibrox Noise were vocal about our lack of fear at his appointment – and the last two Old Firm performances show why.
While we didn’t win the cup final, Celtic were beyond fortunate to do so. And they even had fortune today, but it ran out as Rangers emerged comfortable victors.
And now we can only imagine the angry calls to fire the manager, or questioning his ability, and the angry calls smearing the squad they spent multimillions on as not good enough – all because they didn’t get their own way and they’re no longer the best side in Scotland.
Sorry guys, we came, we saw, we kicked your backsides, and there’s no excuses this time.
You had a good thing with Rodgers, we don’t deny it – lousy in Europe, yes, but domestically untouchable – now under Lennon it’s all falling apart – and now you see why we had zero fear about him being your manager.
He’s ruined a decade-long record to a side assembled at a lot less of the budget – and now the chickens are home to roost.
Sack everyone, right?
