We’re not getting ahead of ourselves by a long way, and in no uncertain terms we are not making a call at this point.
Coupled with our fact-finding piece which revealed Rangers are statistically the best team in Scotland, and the best overall now, Celtic’s dismal domestic start on top of their meltdown last night at the hands of Hungarian side Ferencvaros is the first real sign Parkhead are wilting under the 9.5IAR pressure and Rangers, for now, are thriving.
Rangers’ start to this season has been literally perfect, bar that blot at Livi.
While the football hasn’t been sumptuous on the eyes at all times, it has been devastatingly consistent, and has included two wins over traditional top-6 rivals.
Meanwhile Celtic have stumbled their way through the season and are dumped out, at home, from the Champions League at the first hurdle.
Pacific Self ’94 are not happy, Lennon rambling about how they’re not as good as they think they are and players appear to want to leave.
What a shame.
We told you a few days ago, if Rangers keep up this level of performance and consistency, we will win 55 this season.
Celtic have already lost £20M in revenue thanks to getting horsed out of the Promised Land, and while they probably don’t lack money, that’s £20M less for them to replace those ‘wantaway’ players.
Rangers are currently in a pretty good position, and Celtic, we must say, are not.
We aren’t going to shoot ourselves in the foot, it could all swing and we know that – but at present, it’s the closest we’ve come to a complete sea-change in Scottish football.
They’re definitely not as good as they think they are.
