Frank McAvennie reacts on Twitter to Celtic win v Rangers

By Harvey Byrne

Former Celtic striker Frank McAvennie has stated that the gulf in class between the Hoops and Rangers is “enormous” following the 5-1 victory on Saturday afternoon.

The two Glasgow giants met each other for the sixth time this season earlier in the afternoon at Ibrox with the Gers looking to win their first Old Firm clash of the season.

However, the match was very much one-way traffic with goals coming from each of Scott Sinclair, Leigh Griffiths, Callum McGregor, Dedryck Boyata and Mikael Lustig to ensure Kenny Miller’s late strike was nothing more than a consolation.

The victory has now enabled Celtic to move a clear 34 points away from their Glasgow rivals in the league table and the gap between the two has been a major talking point this season.

Ex-forward McAvennie has also now added to that and posted on his personal Twitter account on Saturday after the Hoops victory that the distance between the pair was “enormous.”

Rangers are in their first season back in the Premiership following their demotion in 2012, but many associated with the club expected the famous side to reclaim their position in the top two of the table.

However, during the Gers’ five years spent out of the top-flight the Hoops have been able to establish their dominance over the rest of Scotland and look to complete the league campaign unbeaten with four games left.

In other Celtic news, Chris Sutton has labelled Rangers a pub outfit after the Hoops hammered them on Saturday.
