It appears Heart and Hand and Ibrox Noise are very much aligned in the ‘opinion’ that Rangers will win the league this season, after the fan account suggested they’d seen nothing last weekend which suggests Rangers won’t win the title.

Despite our rivals scraping past Motherwell with two late late goals, the unconvincing display at Fir Park didn’t change a lot to make us think anything has changed in the title race.

Ibrox Noise is very much a believer in data and patterns, and if we look at the data and patterns since Philippe Clement came in, his impact has been pretty much imperious.

The two major blots of course are at the Dons and Parkhead, but aside those, it’s literally 100% domestically, and impressive in Europe as well. Last 16 after all.

But taking the domestic, the data indicates definitively that all those ‘super computer’ predictions from earlier this season were way off base, simply because they were measuring between Rodgers and Beale, and we saw the resulting headlines.

Ibrox Noise indeed was inundated with commercial partners trying to get us to publish that data (which we wouldn’t), that super computers predicted the Celtic win in the league.

In early September:

“The supercomputer projects that Rangers will struggle to keep pace with Brendan Rodgers’ side this season with our model currently showing that Celtic will finish 15 points ahead – Last season Rangers managed to close the gap to seven points.”

This was the predicted final league table back then:

Things have changed of course.

Data now points to something utterly different – any super computer doing the data now will see 100% Rangers win the title, it’s not even close.

But of course, that title isn’t won in a CPU or an algorithm, it’s won on the pitch and time will tell if the data and the results continue.

Well over four months of consistency suggests it will, but it can all change so fast in football.
