No, Rangers will prob play the youth.

Rangers 2 - Porto 0 is quite remakable really when you think how on its arse Rangers were about 7-8 years ago, travelling to Elgin City and now beating the Champions Leagues Quarter Finalists and drawing the Porto game before. Celtic beating Lazio twice is tremendous too.

With Liverpool winning last season and Leeds returning to the Premier League, it really has been a strong twelve months for ex-fans suddenly 'rediscovering' their love of football.

9 years from formation to their first league title. That's impressive for a new club.

I long for the day fans on both sides of the Glasgow divide remember that this is a football rivalry.  Tax evasion, company law and, particularly, child sexual abuse as point scoring exercises are hor

Rangers are on the up, Porto are on the down. Although not qualified yet, 2 draws should seal it for Rangers and they will get at least 2 points.

So, this weekend marks the end of the top flight hibernation period and the third round of the Scottish Cup. Some decent ties this round.

Hamilton at home to Edinburgh City, St Johnstone at home to Morton, and Hearts at home to Airdrie are all potential upsets I reckon, with the tie of the round undoubtedly being Dundee United and Hibs.

My own Motherwell play away to the Dee live on the BBC with a ridiculously shit kick off time of 7:20pm on Friday night. Anyone else got any interest in the cup games this weekend? Or even attending one?

Meanwhile in Scotland, level-headed logic factory Neil Lennon has lost his nut:

This after Celtic were the only top level team to go to Dubai for a warm weather training camp during a pandemic, a trip for which they managed to get their game with Hibs postponed by two days with special dispensation from the SPFL, and were seen drinking pints around the pool with no social distancing in place. One (now two) of their players then promptly tested positive for Covid after returning home.

Incidentally, Celtic are 21 points behind in the league and most of their fans are generally apoplectic at the fact that this trip went ahead at all. Not sure how that fits into Neil's accusations of anti-Celtic sentiments.

Title race up here is definately not over yet.

Yep, you got that spot on.

Been a shambles by Celtic this season, if we can get a good manager in and try and rebuild and cash in one people like Edouard and Ajer. The transfers this season were horrid.

Our recruitment has been poor for a long time, covered up by the Dembele and Edouard type signings. I think we were all quite hopeful given the calibre of last summers signings on paper and being more than a modest spend. It hasn't worked out at all though, predominantly because Lennon had no idea how to devise a system or style of play that suited the squad.

Rangers have been very good in the league and have had that knack of winning games when not playing well that they didn't have previously.

They’ve been great in Europe too - credit where it’s due, Gerrard has transformed that team. Celtic’s recruitment, as you mentioned, has been weak in recent seasons, but you can’t really say that about Rangers, at least in terms of players they spent money on (Grezda is the biggest flop, and there were a few suspect loan signings, but generally they’ve done very well indeed in the transfer market)

Spectacular effort by Celtic to tank it so impressively. Even if you disregard the fact that Rangers have still yet to hit double figures for goals conceded in the league, to lose the league in March having won the previous nine is some stretch.

Who’s that?

Well done to Rangers on number 55, Celtic fans having absolute meltdowns on Twitter. The most deluded and self-entitled fan base in the UK.

Definitely not traits you could apply to fans of The Rangers at all, absolutely not.
