Boyd pinpoints worst Celtic performance, delivers verdict on unbeaten season
By Danny Wright
Tom Boyd has highlighted the most recent Old Firm derby as Celtic’s worst performance of the season.
Brendan Rodgers’ side are on track to achieve the treble and finish the domestic season unbeaten but the 1-1 draw with Rangers in March did not impress Boyd.
The 51-year-old, who captained the Bhoys to their last treble victory in 2001, said that his old club deserved to win all the games that they achieved three points in – but the Gers stalemate still sticks in his mind.
“They have all been deserved wins and the ones they have drawn, the Rangers game
would be one where the level of performances would make that the right result on that day,” said Boyd, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“It wasn’t as commanding from Celtic that day as it has been throughout the rest of the season.

“So it would need them to drop their standards for anyone to beat them and I don’t think this is something the manager is going to be doing anytime yet.”
Celtic face Rangers in a Scottish Cup semi-final clash at Hampden Park later this month and will want to make amends for the draw in what was Graeme Murty’s final game in charge.
Pedro Caixinha, who was in the stands to see Clint Hill score a last minute equaliser at Celtic Park, has not lost a game since taking the reins but his side have suffered two poor draws with Motherwell and Kilmarnock.
Celtic have already lifted the Scottish League Cup and mathematically secured the Scottish Premiership title after their 5-0 thrashing of Hearts.
