You know the funny thing with Rangers’ current crisis?
We only sit two points behind supposedly superior Celtic.
It’s been easily forgotten in among the chaos in the Champions League and our diabolical injury crisis that domestically, while performances have been patchy, Hibs and Celtic aside we’ve managed to win every match this season.
That’s right, every domestic match for Rangers has been a victory this season, with only that step up to the UCL proving a step too far at the moment and making a fairly decent campaign suddenly look an infinite amount worse.
Even then, the Hibs draw was only one due to two red cards and a late late equaliser. Yes we were not great in that match, but it was circumstantially made harder by losing two players.
The only domestic Rangers match in which we’ve just not been at it and rightly lost was of course Celtic, and that match is the main reason we’re two behind.
Our eastern rivals? They’ve dropped three points themselves, to St Mirren, showing they’re quite capable of slipping up too, as they nearly then did at St Johnstone too.
As awful as Rangers have been in the UCL, we didn’t expect anything more, and domestically we’ve actually been acceptable.
It’s not like it’s a 5-point gap and growing, but it is a delicate junction – if Rangers just keep winning in the league, that’s all we can ask. Ignore board this injuries that – if we can just keep on winning in the SPL, where it counts, then it really doesn’t matter how badly it’s going in Europe.
What we’re getting at is 56 was top priority this season, for all of you and for us on Ibrox Noise – and on that front things are actually ok.
Two points is nothing.
