The Scottish Premiership is underway. Typically Scotland’s top tier table is as predictable as the Bundesliga or Serie A: it’s dominated by one team and one team only. In Scotland, it’s all about Celtic. Unless it’s about Rangers, that is.
Can Rangers stop Celtic this year?Celtic have won the past 9 Scottish Premiership titles. Rangers had a run of 9-in-a-row as well in the late 80’s and 90’s. Rangers have 54 top tier titles. Celtic have 51. But this year is a big one. Neither team have ever won 10 straight. The pressure is on Rangers’ manager Steven Gerrard to make sure that does not happen on his watch. Rangers’ pride–and his potential to convince Anfield bosses he’s a viable Jurgen Klopp replacement in 2024–ride on Rangers winning the title this season.
