FORMER Ibrox Star David Weir has laid bare the obsession everyone at Ibrox has about Celtic winning ten in a row.
In a candid interview, the former defender admitted that the Gers faithful would do ANYTHING and sacrifice whatever they needed to in order to stop Celtic winning ten in a row.
We have always maintained that there is a huge flaw in this mindset, they seem to really think they got to nine trophies in a row first when in fact it was Jock Stein’s Celtic who managed it first well before the Old Rangers managed it.
Celtic stopped Walter Smith’s side from breaking Celtic’s record on the final day of the 1998 season where goals from Henrik Larsson and Harold Brattback secured the League title in dramatic fashion.
Speaking about the obsession, Weir told the Scotsman:
The fear of ten [in a row league titles] won’t go away and that is the nature of the beast. Everyone knows that is in the back of every Rangers fan’s mind and that is the worst case scenario. They would sacrifice everything else for that to be stopped,”
Here we go ten in a row!
