No guarantee of Celtic title party as Rangers will look to be the ultimate spoilers


The party hats are ready, no doubt banners have been prepared, and there is bunting is on the streets.

Celtic are expected to hammer Rangers and become Scottish Premiership champions for the seventh season in a row at Celtic Park on Sunday.

Hoops fans are probably already preparing what pub to go to after the game for the inevitable celebration.

But it might not be as easy as many Hoops fans think.

There is nothing more that the Gers would love to do than to get a result and spoil the ultimate party that the Bhoys have prepared.

The Light Blues have been written-off this season, and with good reason, as their performance in the recent Scottish Cup semi-final loss to the Hoops was nothing short of embarrassing.

But Graeme Murty’s men still have pride to play for, and they won’t want the indignation of becoming the first Gers side to allow the Bhoys to clinch the title against them since 1979.

The Gers have, in recent Old Firm derbies, played well at Celtic Park when they were expected to get soundly defeated – the 1-1 draw last season, and the goalless draw in December, which they could have won, had their finishing been better.

Of course, Brendan Rodgers will have his Hoops players fired up for the game, and they will be out to put on a show for their supporters.

But it wound’t be a complete shock – just a very big one, maybe – if the Gers managed to dig in and delay the celebrations by one week.

Only time will tell…
