It’s clear now that the Scottish Premiership is for anyone to win. Celtic’s latest dropped points, a well-deserved loss at plucky Kilmarnock, is the most recent setback to Brendan Rodgers’ abysmal Parkhead side, who have lost a tonne of their best players, signed badly, and now have a manager who’s lost his own stock in the game.
The days of Angie’s all-conquering Celtic are done and Rangers and Celtic are now equal.
Rangers might be unable to compete financially, but the league table doesn’t lie, and in principle, Rangers have top of the table in sight, if we can win our game in hand and win on the 30th.
Celtic lost Jota, Starfelt, Mooy, Soro and Angie himself, and spent £15M on players who haven’t worked.
Much like Rangers.
But the difference is that while Rangers’ squad isn’t balanced and needs improvement, it is better-managed, even if we don’t agree with everything Philippe Clement does.
Rodgers is just making a backside of his team, and we absolutely love it.
There is of course a long, LONG way to go in the league, but anyone who thinks Rangers can’t win the league this season is wrong.
Celtic are rotten, they are literally horrible this season – their manager is appalling, and their players diabolical.
They’ve lost their momentum and we wouldn’t be shocked if protests start happening.
We’re far from saying Rangers are great, because lord we know we aren’t, but if there is momentum with anyone in the Scottish Premiership this season, with the arrival of Clement it’s not with Celtic for sure.
There will be many, many more bumps, twists and turns in this story, so let’s not pretend 56 is ours because they lost, but the door is open for anyone to win this thing.
Rangers might as well walk through it.
