KRIS BOYD has claimed the title race is over after watching his former side drop more points in the SPFL while Celtic continue to win.
It was another weekend where Celtic extended their lead at the top. The bhoys came from behind against Ross County to win 2-1 on Saturday afternoon. A couple of hours prior, Giovanni van Bronkhorst’s men were lucky to take away a point against St Mirren.
Kris Boyd was on the panel for the game in Paisley and after watching the game, the hapless pundit declared the title race was finished.
Speaking Live on Sky Sports, Kris said: “When you go on this run – they’ve been to St Johnstone and lost, limped over the line against Hearts and drop more points here – the title is over and I’ve got a funny feeling now so is Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s time as Rangers manager.
“If Rangers had scored a winning goal there it would have papered over the cracks. There’s trouble, there’s no doubt about it. There’s problems in that Rangers dressing room, whatever they may be.”
Kris was clearly emotional. He can rarely render a verdict without his allegiances coming into things.
Celtic and Ange Postecoglou will not be thinking the same way as Kris and know if they don’t put their best foot forward after the World Cup break, they’ll quickly be back in a dog fight.
Nine points clear after 14 games played is a tremendous effort by all involved at the club, but the title race isn’t over yet. We’re not even half way through proceedings.
The signs are there Celtic can keep on winning. They lost Callum McGregor during this latest run of games, as well as having CCV and Jota out at points. Yet the bhoys have still managed to dig deep and win games.
The Hoops are now off to Australia to take part in the Sydney Cup. Some warm weather and some stress free games of football will do them good.
