It would be devastating for Celtic if Rangers ended their rivals’ 10-in-a row dreams at Parkhead.
That is according to former Arsenal star Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after Celtic’s 1-0 loss to Ross County on Sunday.
That result, sealed by a 71st minute Jordan White header, means Rangers can now win their first Scottish Premiership title since 2011 at the home of their arch-rivals.
For that to happen, the two sides would need to match each other’s records in the two games before the Old Firm clash on 21 March.
A point at Parkhead would then seal the Light Blues’ 55th league title.
Campbell claims that it’s hard to overstate how symbolic the victory would be for Rangers but predicts that Celtic will move mountains to prevent it from happening.
He told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “Listen, if you get an opportunity to win it at the home of your rivals, that’s the one.
“You definitely wanna take it because of what it is, what it represents and what it’s gonna mean.
“You’re stopping Celtic’s 10-in-a-row. That’s where you wanna win it. It’d be the most fitting, winning it at Celtic Park.
“But I’m sure the Celtic players will hate that. They’ll say: ‘Win it somewhere else.’ So they are gonna have to perform.”
