When it comes to changing fortunes and swinging a gap in the club’s direction, there aren’t many men who are better equipped to speak about that than Martin O’Neill who did exactly that when he was appointed back in 2000.
As quoted by the Glasgow Times speaking on Go Radio, O’Neill addressed what he believes is the reason that the gap has stretched in the direction of the Hoops Glasgow Rivals this season, as well as addressing his thoughts on what may be needed ahead f next season to try and bring the title back to Parkhead.
O’Neill pretty much destroys the myth that Celtic won’t be able to catch their rivals for a number of years.
“Rangers have won the league and looked particularly strong, they’ve been able to win matches that in previous seasons they would drop those points.
“Celtic have still got some exceptionally good football players who have been worthy of that position over the last number of years.”
Speaking about the possible scale of the job that awaits the new manager, O’Neill added
“If it’s a big concerted effort, I don’t think it might be the incredible job that one might be led to believe at this minute.”
The next few weeks and months could be absolutely crucial for the future of the club going forward as the board prepare to make some big decisions and appointments.
Right now, looking forward there are reasons to be optimistic if some reports are to be believed around the sort of set-up that will be put in place ahead of the new campaign.
The pressure is really on the board next season with the current rebuild that is going on at the club, whilst also having the need to win back the league title off of Rangers once again
