The Rangers now have a 19-point lead over their historic rival.
RNothing seems to stop Steven Gerrard’s Rangers, not even Celtic. On Saturday, he won at Old Firm (1-0) and prominence. Invincible in the Scottish premiership after 22 days, the future Rangers of Antwerp in the Round of 32 of the Europa League, hold a 19 point lead over their rival of the day. The victory of the tenth title in a row now seems almost impossible for Celtic.
Callum McGregor’s own goal sealed the game’s result in the 70th game, after a few minutes Neer Bitton was left to pull a rude shirt as Alfredo Morelos ran.
However, it was Celtic who dominated in the first half, but each time a very good Alan McGregor came up against the Rangers’ goalkeeper.
The Rangers are now 19 points ahead of Celtic, who are however trailing by three games. But the undefeated Rangers in the league look well on their way to winning the first national title since 2011, the 55th in their history, a European record, 130 years after the first.
Steven Gerrard’s side were defeated only once this season in all competitions in the League Cup against St. Mirren. The Rangers, dominant in the continuity, will undoubtedly become a major obstacle for Antwerp in the Round of 32 of the Europa League. Without Ivan Lecco, who quit training in China, the Great Old will welcome the Scots a week later on Thursday before moving to Glasgow.
