Charlie Adam reacts to Dave King 'stirring the pot' with Rangers-Celtic claims

Charlie Adam has claimed that Dave King has been proven right by Celtic struggling to cope with the Rangers transformation in recent years.

The former Bears chairman admitted over three years ago that the Old Firm rivals would fold “like a pack of cards” and that has come true this season.

Rangers are currently 18 points clear of their nearest rivals and are cruising towards 55 with one hand already on the Scottish Premiership title.

Speaking on PLZ’s The Football Show on Wednesday afternoon, Adam admitted it was lighthearted from King, but that it has been proven right.

“Dave has come out now, and he’s just stirring the pot,” he said.

“It’s lighthearted, but he was right. He made those comments a few years ago, when Rangers get back to where they’re meant to be, they’ll put on pressure on Celtic, and they will fold.

“I wouldn’t say they’ve (Celtic) bottled it, I think that their form has just dipped dramatically from the pandemic and that’s carried on into the season.”

King was absolutely spot on.

Celtic have been nothing short of shocking this season, and have well-and-truly crumbled as Rangers have totally dominated every aspect of the league.

Everything appears to be going in the right direction at Ibrox, compared to the other side of Glasgow which seems to be going in completely the wrong direction.

King has played a massive role in this transformation, and why can’t he look back at these comments with a huge grin after it was proved right.
