ALEX MCLEISH likes to poke his head above ground every so often, the former EBT head honcho at Ibrox sounds like he’s sick of this ten in a row chat, so much so, he wants it ended by next year!
“Let’s be honest, people say that Rangers have got to stop 10-in-a-row, but you’ve got to stop the next one,” McLeish said.
“It can’t be about stopping 10-in-a-row, they’ve got to stop the next one. You can’t wait and plan for three years ahead.
“Graeme Murty has made some good advances and the players he’s added have been good, so they have to aim for the top.”
Now, what he’s saying is logical in the sense that of course The Rangers would be dying to stop Celtic from beating the record the Parkhead club actually made for themselves back in the 60s.
Afterall, the sooner they get a major trophy in their ranks the less bitter some of their fanbase might become…MIGHT.
However, while it’s logical to want the team to win the league, how realistic is it? Especially considering that had it not been for lack of funds to hire a bus they would have paraded through the streets of Govan after coming away from Celtic Park with a point.
Levels have to be set and to be fair, they have set those levels themselves. McLeish may want the hurting to stop but what you want and what you get are two very different things. While they continue to obsess over Celtic’s longterm goals they neglect their own short-term ones – a recipe for disaster.
