Remember Graeme Murty, the man they wheel out when Celtic win too much they can’t take it anymore?

Yeah, the guy that once did a handstand pitchside.

Having been sacked by Gers last season, the Englishman went back down to the reserves where he manages the younger squad on a daily basis.

This season Murty has had his young team playing well as has Celtic reserve manager Tommy McIntyre.

As the reserve league reaches its pulsating conclusion it’s Graeme Murty and The Rangers who have the upper hand as we go into the final day.

Celtic slipped up to their Glasgow rivals two weeks ago and suffered a 2-0 defeat which opened the door for an Ibrox reserve title win.

Celtic won 3-1 against Motherwell on Monday to go back to the top of the league but Murty’s side won 4-1 against Hamilton on Tuesday which means they are level on points going into the last day BUT the Ibrox club has a better goal difference.

This means on the final day of the Reserve League, Celtic will have to better the Ibrox club’s result and if they both win Celtic must win by four goals more than Murty’s side. It seems a very tall task for the young Hoops.

For anyone keen to follow what happens next. Both sides will play their last game on May 3rd. Celtic will take on St Johnstone while The Rangers take on Falkirk – if both were somehow to lose, Hibs would be crowned Champions.
