2 weeks ago if you were to take the full time reaction after Parkhead at face value, Celtic were to win the league with a runaway points tally, Gio was about to get the sack, and Rangers were going to be absolutely rogered by Dortmund in a couple of weeks.
Oh what a difference 15 days have made.
Rangers have lost two goals in 4 matches, scored 14, won the lot, and destroyed the mighty Dortmund while they were at it.
Meanwhile, at the time of writing Celtic have a hell of a glimt in their eye as a team who haven’t played seriously since December are absolutely obliterating them on their own patch.
What a difference, two weeks make….
15, little days…
Rangers are still second in the table, but there is absolutely no denying the overreaction that Celtic were now to bestride the league like a colossus while Rangers were ready to fold, reaction mostly from our own fans we hasten to add, was a tad… shall we say premature.
We told many fans not to react like this, and in your defence, many of you agreed with us.
Only 2 weeks later, we think you’re all onside.
Gio has demonstrated in the past two weeks why he’s the right man to lead us.
Parkhead was in fact the best thing that could happen to us – he learned his own weaknesses, he learned that of his squad’s, and he quickly put together a plan to fix it.
And since then, he’s repaired all the damage and taken us to maybe the best result in our European history.
It’s not looking so bad now, is it?
