The new Rangers have not beaten Celtic since 2016 (D2 L6). Every-time when a Glasgow Derby comes around and a new manager is appointed at Ibrox, Celtic fans have to endure headlines of “Closing Gaps” and of “Stronger Rangers” teams that are going to push Celtic.
At the end of the day, football talks, results and league tables tell the truth. From 2pm today everyone with any interest will know how good and improved the latest improvements at Govan really are.
Celtic’s defeat by Aberdeen in the final game of last season is their only home defeat in the league under Brendan Rodgers (W30 D9). Everything is in Celtic’s favour today apart from a nonsense transfer window.
The Celtic back four nearly picks itself because of injuries and new signings only joining the club. The big call today was always going to be who played up front. Celtic fans would of expected Griffiths to start but it is the record signing Edouard who plays the lone role after a hamstring injury.
