If there’s one thing we could take away from yesterday’s opening SPL day, it’s that even a Rangers a little below their best was still miles too good for a strong Livi side, while Celtic travelled to Hearts and got gubbed yet again, to their fans’ glorious meltdown.

The reality is Rangers are so far ahead of their city rivals it’s not even funny – not even the worst of the newly-promoted Rangers were this far behind Celtic that the green and white were only saved from being bottom of the table by their city rivals.

That’s right, thanks to Rangers putting away Livi by 3-0, Celtic were spared the agonising embarrassment of being bottom of the SPL table for the first ever time, something not even the most diabolical Rangers ever suffered.

Celtic are an absolute fruitloop moonhowling basketcase, and if ever you saw a more dramatic swing from one side of the city to the other, we’d love to hear it.

The last time either side of the Old Firm was bottom of the table was early season 89/90 pre-SPL when Rangers lost to St Mirren on the opening day of the campaign, before Micky Weir’s Hibs made it two losses out of two – Celtic were top of the table and Rangers were rock bottom.

Thanks to Rangers’ goal haul at Ibrox, the blushes have been saved for Celtic to be outright bottom themselves.

Rangers are, after the first match, already comfortably ahead in the table, with Edinburgh’s finest in Hearts the nearest challengers with a goal difference miles behind ours.

True, there’s another two fixtures with Aberdeen, United, Hibs and Motherwell still to play, but it’s not like we fear any of those teams.

No, we can rarely recall a situation this dire for Celtic, and glorious for ourselves.

We have much work still to do, such were the imperfections of our display, but when a Rangers in second gear is still a canyon better than Celtic, it’s not even funny any more.

Ok, yes it is…

  1. We were not even in 2nd gear yesterday but we cruised to 3-0 .In contrast ann average hard working Hearts team with good coaching and organisation played the rotten mob off the park , OK Gordon saved brilliantly to prevent a draw but let’s be honest the rotten mob looked a shambles. Stavros is totally being over ridden by the dross 3 Stooges Kennedy Strachan McManus you see , you can see it in the team. It’s hilarious to see, a little sympathy for Stavros . They are a shambles both on and off the field . What goes around comes around they disrespectfully slaughtered us so suck it up .
