Kenny Miller admits Celtic scorelines flatter Rangers

Former Celtic and Rangers striker Kenny Miller has admitted that the scorelines in the last three Glasgow Derby games have flattered Philippe Clement’s side. The Belgian manager and Cyril Dessers have claimed that fine margins cost the Ibrox side but Miller disagrees.

Speaking to Clyde Superscoreboard on Monday evening, the former Scotland Internationalist has admitted that their is a gulf in talent between the teams.

Celtic won the Scottish Cup thanks to a late Adam Idah goal just two weeks after winning 2-1 in the league at Celtic Park. Last month, Rangers held Celtic to a 3-3 draw at Ibrox thanks to a late goal from Rabbi Matondo and then Miller references the 2-1 win at Celtic Park in December. Miller is quite correct in his assessment that Celtic have been the better team all season and that the scorelines have actually suggested that there was less between the teams.

  1. We played the scum 5 times during the season, and never produced a full performance in any of the 5 games imo?
    Possibly the worst performance out of the 5 was produced on Saturday imo?
    And yet the scum still couldn’t beat us, and produced next to nothing to even make a claim in saying that they deserved the victory?
    Wasn’t expecting ourselves to be as poor with the football as we were in possession of it whatsoever?
    Trying to stop ourselves from playing by going with the man to man marking and hoping for a set play, along with the cheating was about all the scum had to offer?
    For ourselves, we have tended to struggle throughout the season with the many teams that have taken the same approach against ourselves?
    Calls for ourselves to get the first goal earlier within matches in such circumstances, hence why the blatant penalty not given, could totally have changed the whole complexion of the game, taken we scored it?
    Admittedly the scum grew into the game with such an approach, but what won’t be highlighted is that our own belief never dropped even without playing particularly well?
    Such games have cost ourselves many points during the league campaign and made a title race for some time, but like Saturday the scum still went missing when the pressure really started to kick In?
    No doubt there still remains aspects within our game that has to be improved upon for next season still?
    But the real question remains, is the scum with there annual rebuild, going to be looking for players to be able to stop ourselves from playing moreso than getting player’s in who might be adventurous and trying to beat ourselves playing football than just depending upon set plays and penalties against ourselves?
    Believe that we will be looking for more players with a better physical presence and more comfortable upon the football, then we currently have within our squad, which in theory would make us more adaptable to what Rodgers is looking for our team to be looking like?
    If that should be the case, then we become far stronger, all the while the scum will be trying to scrape the bottom of the barrel looking for more rotten apple’s to play such a non footballing approach and all without any quality on show whatsoever?
