So with fans of Rangers and ‘them’ digesting the events of this weekend, where exactly do both results leave the title race?

Where are things now with both members of the Old Firm stumbling?

Well, the obvious one is that this proves, definitively, that Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic are not title material.

They have simply dropped too many points over the course of the season to be real contenders, and the big BIG chance to make a statement and retake the lead in the league was completely choked by everyone in green.

In short, Rangers opened the door, but it was the turn of the East End to fail to walk through it – they 100% bottled their chance.

And that is why Rangers are much, much stronger for title number 56.

We stand by everything we’ve vomited out since last night – Celtic’s result doesn’t change the sentiment of what we said.

Dujon Sterling is still wasted on the right wing and not being used in midfield, and it weakens us, and that doesn’t suddenly change because Celtic lost.

But it shows that Rodgers’ team doesn’t have champion mentality in them.

In recent seasons, 100% Angie’s Celtic would have won that one, they would have seized on Rangers’ error and pummelled Hearts.

Rodgers’ side couldn’t lay a glove.

So really, as a paradox, this weekend was actually a fantastic one for Rangers – we now know that Rodgers’ side are bottlers, that if we do, and we likely will, slip up again, this Parkhead mob are nowhere near where they were last season and have a much lower chance of exploiting the error.

That gives us a brilliant insight into a fractional spot of insurance, that a slip up by us isn’t a guaranteed punishment from them.

Of course, we’d have preferred the 5-point lead, beating Motherwell and watching them lose to Hearts. That would have been better.

But the bloody nose to Clement and his Rangers team might just have been the best ‘lesson’ we could have had.

We do need to be better, and we do need to fix things, but we now know our rivals are not league-winning material, and their manager is struggling.

It remains Rangers’ league to lose, but this Celtic is evidently there for the taking.
