There are two separate aspects of this wonderful period.
1- Rangers and the performance of Our Team.
2- The complete meltdown of Celtic.
To experience both aspects in the same season is very special.
We are truly witnessing the best Rangers team in decades, whilst simultaneously enjoying the collapse of everything at Parkhead.
Days of glory and domination come and go, but this period is simply there to be savoured. This period is wondrous and joyous, and is comfortably up there with the heady days of Walter and the wee Dutchman.
By nature, I am not the sort of person who enjoys the misery of others, but this is different. Having suffered a decade of patronising sh*t at the hands of Team Declan, it is hugely satisfying to see them in abject misery. To watch them turn against their club and threaten the players, management and board. The Green Brigade’s outpouring of bile and hatred shows their true colours and is especially joyous to witness.
Meanwhile, Our Club goes from strength to strength and our glorious, loyal fans sing joyfully about Scotty Arfield and “Living it Up”, with no notable hint of anger or nastiness.
Our strength in depth is a joy to behold. Yesterday, we left one of the best full backs in the UK on the bench, and brought on quality substitutions at the right time – which shows our true depth of squad. How wonderful to be in that position.
We have a squad that cost a fraction of that of Celtic, or indeed of Walter or Dick. We have a young head coach who is a class act; a man of dignity, decorum and quality. A man who, one day, will return to his first love, Liverpool FC, but who will take a bit of Rangers with him in his heart.
Many of the current squad will end up, rightly, in our Hall of Fame, and we will look back, as old folk, and say that we saw the greatest ever comeback in modern football.
From the depths of the abyss in 2012, to where we are now, is wonderful. When we deliver 55 in May, it’ll go down as the greatest ever achievement in our 149 year old history. I am now in the firm belief that we are nearing this great achievement and I am now counting off the days.
