Whether it was inadvertent or not, Rangers fans will love Martin Tyler’s apparent dig at Celtic on Saturday night as Liverpool beat Arsenal.
As Kieran Tierney was substituted off just before half-time due to injury in Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat to Liverpool at the Emirates, Sky Sports commentary legend Tyler discussed the former Celtic left-back’s injury record in North London.
In the process, he ended up taking a swipe at Celtic’s failure to win their 10th Premiership title in a row this season with Rangers crowning themselves as champions last month.
Speaking on Sky Sports Main Event, Tyler said: “It’s his personal best as an Arsenal player, nine games in a row. He’s never started that many before and he’s not going to make it 10 in a row by the looks of it.”
Due to Tierney’s injury issues, he’s struggled to put together a consecutive run of games in Arsenal’s starting line-up.
He showed signs of those injury issues at Celtic and Arsenal don’t exactly have a great record of keeping players fit so it remains to be seen how long the Scotland left-back will have to sit out for now.
Either way, we could not help but laugh at what Tyler said.
We’re not 100 per cent sure whether or not the commentator meant it. He doesn’t come across as the kind of person who keeps up with football in Scotland due to how much work he needs to do when covering games in the Premier League.
But that doesn’t make it any less funny.
We’re absolutely revelling in winning title number 55 this season and hopefully we can add to the silverware collection by lifting the Scottish Cup too.
First up is a clash against Cove Rangers and if we win that, it’s a game against Celtic.
What a draw that is and wouldn’t it be amazing to cause yet another dent in their season.
