For over two decades now, Celtic has been a dominant force in domestic football. Rangers’ only league triumph in the recent decade occurred during the unique circumstances of the pandemic when fans were absent from stadiums.
With the return to normalcy post-pandemic, Celtic has regained its stride. Their squad, adept at handling high-pressure situations, maintains a robust position in the league despite a recent slip-up at Celtic Park. Barry Ferguson spoke about Celtic on Go Radio this week and while he knows the bhoys have had their European woes, he’d still rather be in Celtic’s position.
After Celtic’s European exit, Ferguson remarked, “I would rather be in Celtic’s position, at this moment in time. Top of the league, points ahead.
“With a game in hand (for Rangers) it is still possible for Rangers. They have to keep believing that if they start winning then they can claw it back.”
Celtic’s recent performance has been somewhat mixed – a draw at home against Motherwell followed by a 2-0 defeat to Lazio in Europe. However, the Bhoys currently lead the Premiership by eight points, even as both Glasgow teams dropped points over the weekend. Celtic have not quite found their rhythm yet and have had call-offs to key players.
December promises to be a hectic month for the league, highlighted by the crucial encounter between Celtic and Rangers at Parkhead on December 30.
Ferguson and many other Ibrox fans live in hope rather than expectation, they change their manager on an annual basis at the moment to try and find the winning formulae.
