Ridiculous Barry Ferguson comments will play right into Celtic hands


Former Rangers captain Barry Ferguson has made some utterly ridiculous comments about the most recent Old Firm derby.

Writing in his column in the Daily Record, Ferguson has made the claim that the Hoops were ‘lucky’ to win the match at Ibrox 3-2, despite the fact that the Bhoys played the last half an hour with ten men following the dismissal of Jozo Simunovic.

Ferguson also made the claim that the only difference between the sides on the day was ‘good fortune’.

Brendan Rodgers and the players at Celtic will be delighted with Ferguson’s comments. They will no doubt use them as motivation to prove him and the rest of the critics wrong as the Bhoys aim to complete their second consecutive domestic treble.

The comments are similar in a way to Gers boss Graeme Murty’s bizarre declaration, as reported by the Daily Record, that his players had cheered the Scottish Cup semi-final draw which set up an Old Firm derby in April.

Murty’s comments seemed to inspire the Hoops players to want to set the record straight about who holds the power in Scottish football, which they did in the win at Ibrox which all but clinched a seventh consecutive league title.

There seems to have been a lot of writing-off of the Hoops this season, you would never know that they were nine points clear at the top of the league and the players and management will no doubt have taken note of Ferguson’s ignorant utterances, and will be looking to shut him up for good when the teams meet in the Scottish Cup semi-final.
