Uk news Dozy Rangers fans need to get real over 'Invincible' season pipe dream MetiNews.Com
MetiNews.Com - David McCarthy answers your calls as title posturing and rewriting the record books dominate the news agenda for fans of Glasgow's big two.
Breaking News ! The Dubai debacle refuses to melt away and Celtic’s winter of discontent rages on. The bickering and baiting continues across the Old Firm divide but there is universal agreement that the Parkhead outfit have scored a monumental own goal. Gordon Grant, Banff, got the ball rolling, saying: “Celtic’s trip to Dubai was a big mistake. But you can bet your last shilling that Lennon and Brown will be bleating, and blubbering about a fixture pile-up come the end of the season. “The sad thing about this is that the SPFL management will bend over backwards as usual to help Celtic, who have friends in high places. Celtic will only have themselves to blame and, like Rangers a few years ago, should not get the season extended just to suit themselves. But we all know what will happen.” Jim Docherty emailed: “Firstly as a Celtic fan for over 60 years, let me congratulate Rangers on winning the Premiership this season, as there’s no chance that Celtic will turn the deficit round. “Onto the Dubai debacle, why did Celtic ask for the postponement of the Hibs game when they were already playing catch-up because of Covid issues? Peter Lawwell needs to do the decent thing and resign and take the rest of the board with him and let’s move on to 2021-22 united as a club.” Read More Related Articles Transfer news LIVE as Celtic and Rangers plus Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibs eye signings Jimmy Fyfe, Falkirk, said: “Are the SPFL for real? We are in an extremely dangerous position with coronavirus and they refuse to put Hibs at ease by refusing testing of Celtic players and threatening Hibs if they did not play. Celtic, too, played their part in all of this and both should be deeply ashamed of their actions.” Charles Buchanan emailed: “Yet again Celtic have let their fans down, with 10 now an impossible task. If they had strengthened from the back they wouldn’t have been in this position. Rangers did that and got it right. It's probably the worst I’ve seen teams in our top league. It used to be strong with Aberdeen, Hibs, Hearts. Dundee Utd, Motherwell as well as Celtic and Rangers. “Rangers are the better team just now but even their last four games they were beatable. I fear it won’t be Covid that will be keeping fans out of Celtic Park unless there are big changes.
. The most important season in our history couldn’t have gone any worse and you have to say all self inflicted. Heads need to roll and Lawwell should be first out the door, taking the manager with him.” Alan Smith, Paisley, emailed: “That Celtic were totally wrong in going to Dubai is painfully obvious, but to have Ally McCoist talk about double standards takes the biscuit. To date Rangers are the only club to have blatantly broken Covid rules in playing a game not knowing the results of their players tests. Where was Ally’s voice then?”

Stuart McLeod, from Stepps emailed: “We need someone at Celtic to join up the dots on the Dubai trip. On the day of the Old Firm match Lennon described the trip as R and R, which he later changed to a full training camp. Why was Christopher Jullien (a player on crutches sidelined for four months) included in an elite training camp? Assistant coach John Kennedy admitted mistakes had been made with the Covid protocols and we have all seen the pictures. Kennedy also stated that Duffy would be unavailable for the Hibs match due to leaving their ‘bubble ‘ after flying home early on a commercial flight but is then somehow included in the Celtic team on Monday night. None of this adds up.” Any Arsenal fans who remember 2003/2004 may take issue with Erskine’s Lance Little and his logic. He emailed: “Do Rangers fans actually understand what an invincible season is? It means going through a full season undefeated. It means not losing any of your league games and both Cups, culminating in winning all three trophies.

“Their team has lost to St Mirren and the best they can hope for is two trophies. Sorry Rangers you cannot claim an invincible season. Good try though.” Finally, a non-Old Firm call that exuded some much-needed positivity from Tam Bain, from Desborough, who said: “After watching young Billy Gilmour at the weekend, he must be a stick on for the Euros. Steve Clarke should be rubbing his hands with excitement at the prospect of seeing the best young Scottish footballer in a generation up against Europe’s best.”
