Former Liverpool defender and Champions League winner, Jamie Carragher, was a guest on Open Goal podcast this week. Once a man who claimed Celtic was his second team, he seems to have jumped ship to get behind his former colleague, Steven Gerrard, at the new Rangers.
Throughout the interview, Paul Slane was in awe of the Englishman, and Carragher played on that by saying:
“The Premiership is as good as over. Celtic have no chance of catching Rangers… If Celtic win the league you (Slaney) can come and stay here (in Carragher’s house) for a year. Or we can house swap. It’s not a problem, you have absolutely no chance!”
Many fans feel that the league is certainly headed towards Ibrox, but Neil Lennon and his players haven’t given up yet. Indeed, Celtic will need to win all but one or two games for the remainder of the season, but it’s something that the Bhoys feel they might just do.
The next four games are absolutely pivotal. Celtic have three comfortable fixtures, which they must win. Meanwhile, the Rangers have some tough games. If any points are dropped it may alter things. The fourth game is then the crunch New Year’s derby at Ibrox. Anything less than three points for Celtic probably finishes things. However, the Rangers have shown that they aren’t as invincible as they thought. Indeed, the ‘Gers lost to St Mirren in the League Cup recently and then struggled to overcome Motherwell at home. Undoubtedly, they are massive favourites for the title, but let’s all hope that Slaney is putting his feet up on Carragher’s sofa this time next year!
