BBC pundit Michael Stewart has made a bold claim about the current Celtic squad ahead of the Glasgow Derby match against Rangers on Sunday.
Celtic has had an incredible first half of the season, and now on Sunday they could add another huge victory to their resume when they face Rangers on Sunday in another Glasgow Derby match. On top of domestic dominance, the Hoops have proven they can win against the biggest hitters in Europe after winning their Group E in the Europa League.
Compared to last season, the Hoops are on a great trajectory to be able to bring home some more hardware, as well as help with increasing the coefficient for Scotland with their success in Europe.
Now, ahead of Sunday’s Glasgow Derby against Rangers, a BBC Scotland pundit, has made a bold claim about the current Hoops squad.
Writing in his column in the Scottish Sun, he explains why he thinks this squad is better than last year’s:
“This season they are arguably in better shape in terms of their position and their performances. There is a real rhythm to this Hoops side, a really good balance to the team. On any given weekend you can predict the majority of the starting 11.”
Michael Stewart makes a very good point, and the infusion of young talent that the Hoops brought in during the summer time has helped from the fitness stand point. On top of the youth movement, the depth that the club has created at each position has been an incredibly important part of what has made the Hoops successful this year.
The big test will be Rangers on Sunday. While the two clubs have met twice this season already, this third match will set the tone going into the January break. A win would help propel the Hoops into the new year on a high note.
