As expected, Rangers fans have failed to accept that Celtic have been crowned champions of Scotland for a record-equaling ninth straight time.
After claiming for the first of the season that their team was destined to stop Celtic from 9-in-a-row, the form that Steven Gerrard’s side showcased following their return the winter training camp in Dubai left them 13 points behind the Hoops in the Premiership table. And the gigantic gap was more than enough to hand Neil Lennon’s side the title after it became clear that the season could not be resumed in the middle of a global pandemic.
Of course, just a month back these same Rangers fans were calling for the season to be declared ‘null and void’ and how Celtic would have to start over their league win streak if that was done because the decision of the SPFL has to be respected. But now, the same fans are adamant that the governing body is in cahoots with the Hoops.
Why? Because the majority of the Scottish clubs decided to do the sensible thing and voted in favour of bringing the season to an end as things stood. Of course, that meant that Celtic won their ninth straight league title, equaling the all-time record and will now go for 10-in-a-row next season.
Obviously, Rangers fans did not take too well to the announcement:
Rest assured that the Rangers fans will claim that this is not a legitimate title at every chance they get. But we all know that if the shoe was on the other foot, they would probably be still out in the streets celebrating.
The fact of the matter is that their fans are hurting right now cause after seeing their side crumble under the pressure following the winter break, they know that there is not much they can do to stop 10-in-a-row next season.
