Alan Brazil claims he was unaware of Rangers v Celtic clash on Sunday

Celtic-crazy pundit Alan Brazil claims he was blissfully unaware about this weekend’s Old Firm fixture with Rangers.

The clubs have already met four times this season, including a Scottish Cup clash earlier in April, but they still have one final contest on Sunday.

Gers hero Ally McCoist told talkSPORT [10:00, 29/04/21] he will be commentating on the Ibrox encounter, leading Brazil to make a surprising assertion.

“I didn’t even know it was Rangers versus Celtic on Sunday,” he said.

“You’ve lost touch, haven’t you?,” McCoist hit back.

“You don’t win the league, you’re throwing toys out of the pram, do you know what I mean? You don’t follow your team.

“If somebody said to me you’ll win the league and be in both cups longer than Celtic, I would’ve taken that this year.”

Brazil replied, “Aye, I’m sure you would.”

Desperate to forget

It’s no wonder why Brazil wants to obliterate the Old Firm fixture from his mind.

Celtic are yet to beat us in any of the four games this season, losing three times, while that run is stretched to five games and December 8 2019 if we include Nikola Katic’s winner at Celtic Park during the 2019/20 campaign.

We don’t think Brazil would be quite so quick to forget had roles been reversed this season and his side were in the ascendancy.

It may be a relatively insignificant game given our 20-point advantage that has seen us romp home with the Premiership title already, but Old Firm clashes are always big regardless of the circumstances surrounding it.

Furthermore, our season of invincibility is still on the line with three games left, so there is plenty to play for from our point of view while Celtic will surely be eager to be the ones to bring it to a halt.

Luckily McCoist was on hand to remind Brazil so he can have the chance to watch us extend our Old Firm unbeaten streak to six games.
