A week ago Rangers wildly celebrated their long awaited return to the top of the Scottish Premiership after a win at Tynecastle. There were scenes of delirious joy as the Gers showed they were ‘back’ at the start of the month.
Fast forward a week later, and it’s fair to say their result today unofficially puts them out of a title race that probably was never really there in the first place.
A defeat to Aberdeen and a draw today to Dundee is not the traits of a team who are ready to go toe to toe with this Celtic team, and yet again, you’d have to assume now the league is a formality from here on in.
The bluster and bravado about Kilmarnock wasn’t their fault during the week, or Steve Clarke’s, who actually talked down his side and was modest enough considering his tremendous achievements with them, but as we have constantly seen under Rodgers reign - when this Celtic team have to swat someone aside, they’d best get out their way with as little fuss as possible, because you aren’t stopping them.
James Forrest’s goals started, and ended, the scoring on Saturday are both finishes were of the highest quality, and with him in the form of his life, who is going to stop him, or even Celtic, on their way to another treble ?
I’m not typing this with the tribalism that a lot of fans have either, it’s just realism, pure and simple.
Watch us runaway with it now.
Thanks to Kenny Miller for another big contribution to Celtic today too!
