Adrian Durham has claimed that Celtic fans cannot handle that Rangers are “back in the big time” this season.
Celtic fans were criticised over the weekend after they staged a mass protest at Parkhead, asking for the sacking of Neil Lennon after the 2-0 defeat against Ross County.
Rangers, on the other hand, are cruising and still remain unbeaten in all competitions under Steven Gerrard as they look to stop 10-in-a-row.
Speaking on talkSPORT, Durham believes that he has nailed why the Celtic fans have hit meltdown in the past month.
“There’s a difficulty in Celtic fans accepting that Rangers are back,” he said.
“They cannot accept that. They’ve had it their own way for so long, they’ve been dominant for so long now, basically a decade, that they just cannot handle Rangers being back in the big time.
“It’s hurting them deeply.”
Meltdown is the perfect way to describe it.
If there is one thing that is making all of this success even better, it is the reaction to it from the other half of Glasgow.
Rangers are 11 points clear of their rivals, and although the Hoops have two games in hand, this gap is clearly too much to handle.
If Celtic were to get rid of someone with the experience of Lennon at this stage, it would only benefit Rangers and their hunt for the title.
The new manager would need to come in, get used to his squad, all while trying to pick up positive results. Whereas the Gers can just continue on this steam train, doing what they’re doing and edging closer to the title.
Sit back and enjoy Bears.
