Bonner insists Celtic Scottish Cup win won't ease pain of Rangers winning 55

Celtic legend Pat Bonner insists there are no positives for the Hoops to take from this season after Rangers secured a historic 55th top-flight title. 

Celtic’s 0-0 draw with Dundee United handed Rangers the trophy after the Gers’ 3-0 win over St Mirren on Saturday.

Bonner hailed Rangers’ achievements this season and insisted it will still be a bad season for Celtic even if they win the Scottish Cup.

“Even though Rangers haven’t kicked a ball today, it’s their day,” Bonner told BBC Sportsound. 

“To only lose nine goals, it doesn’t matter what league you’re in, that’s a fantastic piece of work.

“There is no bonus for Celtic, even if they win the Scottish Cup this year. They’ve thrown away an almighty chance to make history by winning 10 titles in a row.”

This has been one of the best seasons in our history and undoubtedly one of Celtic’s worst.

This bodes well for next season as the Hoops are such a mess it is hard to see them challenging for the league next term.

Though Bonner’s comments about Celtic throwing the league away do a discredit to us.

Even if Celtic were somewhat competent this season there is no way they would’ve kept pace with us.

We have been relentless this season and there is every chance we will finish the league campaign without losing a game.

That’s not down to Celtic not turning up, that’s down to our hard work and nothing else.

Though we expect nothing less from a Parkhead icon.

All we can do now is continue to improve and end this myth that we’ve been lucky this season.

In other Rangers news, Michael Stewart has graciously congratulated the Gers on their title win.
