Lustig makes huge claim about Celtic matches against Rangers, Ibrox faithful will hate this
By James Black
Celtic star Mikael Lustig believes the Old Firm clash has lost some of it’s “hatred” and “hype” following Rangers’ financial meltdown of 2012.
The Swede, who joined Celtic a little over a month before their bitter rivals entered Administration in February 2012, thinks the derby would be of greater importance if the two sides were closer in the league table.
Last season, the Hoops won five of the six games between the Glasgow giants as Brendan Rodgers’ side finished 39 points ahead of the Gers.
Celtic won this season’s first Old Firm clash 2-0 last month at Ibrox and Lustig insists Pedro Caixinha’s side are a long way from catching up with the Scottish champions.
