Beautiful Sunday – Celtic captain says we’d have won at Ibrox

SCOTT BROWN has declared that Celtic would have won at Ibrox and gone sixteen points clear with a win over Rangers. The Celtic captain got his hands on the Ladbrokes Premiership last week after the SPFL board decided that the league could not be completed. With Celtic 13 points clear, it was the only decision that could possibly have been reached.

Now, the 34-year-old has reflected on the season with Celtic TV as a whole and admitted that he believes Celtic were in a great position to go to Ibrox and wrap the league up.

“We were actually getting better and better as the season went on, and we wanted to extend our lead at the top.

“It was hard that the Friday before the Glasgow derby that the game was cancelled, because we were in a great position.

“If we’d have won that, we’d have gone 16 points clear and we believe we’d have done that.”

A win at the home of Rangers would have essentially put the league beyond doubt and given Celtic had won 12 games and drawn 1 since the return to domestic action in January, this was highly likely.

Rangers were in free-fall with a defeat to Bayer Leverkusen on the Thursday night. Their last home game in the league had been a 1-0 defeat to Hamilton and Celtic would have been huge favourites coming into the game. Celtic had won 2-0 at Ibrox back in September, with Brown as ever, fighting for everything in the colours of the Scottish Champions.

Rangers had won at Celtic Park in December against a lacklustre Celtic but Neil Lennon took his side to Dubai, where they regrouped and came back firing on all cylinders. Celtic and Brown will now look to next season where Celtic can make history by becoming the first club to 10-in-a-row, surpassing Jock Stein’s record set in 1974.
