Rangers vs Celtic - January 2nd

There’s still half of the season to go, is it really beyond the realms of possibility for Celtic to win their 3 games in hand and both remaining OF games to level the series this season between the two sides? On yesterday’s showing perhaps not.
Yes, Rangers would also need to drop points but a four point gap wouldn’t look so daunting and certainly not insurmountable.

As for the game itself Rangers weathered the storm in the first half yesterday, but regained composure in the 2nd. Most neutrals I believe would just have easily have accepted a yellow for Bitton as they did the sending off. Celtic seemed to be running out of ideas by then anyway. As mentioned above, as soon as Lennon pulled Griffiths and Turnbull the game was up. Brown brings his nuisance value these days that is all, Duffy is absolutely hopeless, surely a sigh of quiet satisfaction from most Rangers supporters to see em both coming onto the park.
Rangers didn’t fire up yesterday, but did enough, like all decent sides to grind out a result, albeit against 10 men for the final third of the game. SG says that Rangers will ignore any ‘title noise’ at this stage, he know’s the score, there’s still a long way to go.

Celtic winning every single game between now and the end of the season isnt impossible but very unlikely,  I actually think it may go the other way and you could see them having a collapse between now and the end ,

That's the point you lunatic.

It's simply not realistic to talk of this Celtic side winning all their remaining games with so many of them left.

They've already dropped lots of league points, gone out of a cup to a small struggling premier side, squeaked by on penalties in another one against a Championship side and been routinely humiliated in Europe's consolation tournament.

 

The desperation comes in Willy entertaining the idea that this side might now go an incredible winning run.  The pitiful bit comes in the fact that you've joined in.

Celtic fans should console themselves that by the time rangers win it mathematically no one but their fans will care anymore.

Searched through this thread and can’t find a single diddy post that I disagree with, 2021 is shaping up to be as shit as 2020.

There is no consolation in that. The only thing that could offer any consolation would be the announcement of a new manager followed by PL announcing he’s stepping down

Do you think Rangers could have won that “half” a league season? 
 

Do you think Celtic could still win this league with half of it to go?

Yes and yes. 

Both extremely unlikely. More likely we would have caught you than you catching us right enough.

Rangers looked awful yesterday and, whilst it's said that playing badly and winning is a sign of a Championship side, they were very, very lucky. Celtic have recently been playing a lot better, whilst Rangers have not been themselves since we beat them. I don't think the title race is over at all.

I thought we were poor in the first half but that's something that we've done in Europe several times, then improved in the second half. Since the league cup game we've been doing what we previously struggled to do, break down defensive physical sides and get the points.

 

I agree with the title not being over, I can see it going to the wire this season.

For comparison, last season's LCF was 2.6 v 0.83 in Rangers favour.

I think the main takeaway from this is probably how shit-hot Rangers defence is. For Celtic to be as dominant as they were in the first half and only get one shot on target from inside the box says a lot.

Once again, wastecoatwilly is the only Celtic fan talking sense.

Neil Lennon has earned the right to manage Celtic for as long as he sees fit. That's the bottom line.

I find this unacceptable.

I would agree with this but for one thing; Celtic's current ability to concede goals from nowhere on a fairly regular basis. Yesterday was a classic example of dominating play for 45 minutes but failing to score and subsequently losing momentum and another bad goal. Gerrard deserves credit for the introduction of Hagi - he made a difference against a tiring Celtic midfield - and we also need to consider the absence of Jack and Arfield. In Christie, McGregor and (potentially) Turnbull, Celtic have real midfield quality, but titles are won with competency right through the team.

You earn the right by winning matches that matter. We have lost this season too many games that matter.

If Billy McNeil wasn’t afforded the right to manage Celtic for as long as he sees fit nor should Neil Lennon

Making sevco look ordinary is easy to do, there is no doubt they are better without the ball.
Winning the league is still a big ask for both teams,it's advantage sevco at the halfway stage.

I can't believe how quickly they've turned against the proud Ulsterman.
