TalkSPORT presenter Adrian Durham has given his verdict on the Scottish Premiership title race and declared that Rangers are ‘getting better’ while criticising Celtic.

The Gers are now 11 points clear of their Old Firm rivals at the top of the Scottish Premiership though the Hoops have two games in hand.

Speaking on TalkSPORT, Durham claimed that things are looking ‘far worse’ for Celtic than it appears at first glance.

He said, “At the same time Rangers are getting better, Celtic have got a lot worse. Yet they’ve kept Edouard which a lot of people were surprised about, a lot of people thought he was going to go.

“They’ve brought in Duffy who’s on basically Premier League wages and they’re not getting the results they need to make sure they keep Rangers below them in the table. It’s looking far worse than that.”

Even if the Hoops win their two games in hand they will still be five points behind their bitter rivals but it is still early in the season and a lot can change between now and May.


Celtic dropped points against Hibernian this weekend as a late surge saw them recover a draw after being 2-0 down.

Rangers, on the other hand, demolished Aberdeen with a 4-0 win at Ibrox as Steven Gerrard’s side pulled further away from Celtic at the top of the table.

All it would take is for the Gers to lose one league game and concerns would start to set in as the Hoops would be able to get ever closer to their rivals.

Of course, Neil Lennon’s side would need to win all of their games in hand and with their form this season it wouldn’t be surprising if Celtic dropped more points.

The Gers are yet to lose this season and if they can manage another win in the next Old Firm game in January it would go a long way in helping Rangers get their hands on the Scottish title.

In other Rangers news, the Gers are on the minds of Celtic chiefs as they mull over Lennon’s future according to a Sky reporter.
