JOHN HARTSON has been ramping up his Glasgow Derby pre-match commentary in recent days and has told Celtic’s Glasgow rivals they got ‘carried away’ after their victory in December.
A patched up Celtic side went to Ibrox and were outplayed by the home side at times. However, John Hartson has noted since then, the Ibrox side has done very little and almost thinks they put so much into that game it’s cost them further down the line.
Celtic and The Rangers were on the same points going into the new year with the bhoys having a game in hand – we now sit in late March a whopping ten points ahead of them and could go further after the game on Sunday.
Hartson believes Steven Gerrard’s men took their eye off the ball.
“Rangers got carried away by that result. If you look at the results since that win at Ibrox, I don’t know if they took their eye off the ball.” Hartson told SunSport.
“I don’t know if they put so much into that game and got the result, then went away on the winter break and felt they had Celtic’s number.
“You have to ask, where’s it gone?”
“It was a wonderful performance. Celtic were second best and Rangers won fair and square.
“But is that enough? Just turn up and beat Celtic in one Old Firm game? Does that make you happy?
“If it does, then you have a problem because Rangers should have kicked on from there.”
It’s up to Neil Lennon and his team to right the wrongs of the Ibrox game in December and come within touching distance of the league title with a win.
