Rangers invincible title has 'vanished' already - BBC man Tom English
Tom English has insisted that Rangers’ invincible title has already “vanished” into a puff of smoke after Celtic were crowned champions on Wednesday.
The BBC journalist forgot everything the Bears have done for Scotland in Europe this season, ignoring Giovanni van Bronckhorst in what appears to be a Celtic love-in.
Rangers now have the Scottish Cup and Europa League finals to look forward to, with the latter likely bigger than anything Celtic have done if they lift it in Seville.
Writing in his latest BBC column, English didn’t hold back in his assessment of our fierce rivals and what it meant for the Bears in the whole.
“The job the Australian has done is akin to a magician’s touch,” he wrote.
“He inherited a side that was beset by doubt and made all its problems disappear. Rangers’ title, won by 25 points, has vanished in a puff of smoke.”
That is what Celtic lifting the Scottish Premiership would mean if we were to lift the Europa League.
Imagine how embarrassing it would be for them to celebrate and dangle this Champions League carrot in our faces, only for us to stump that and reach the competition anyway.
Not only that, but it would also bring in more revenue than they are set to receive, meaning they have been given no benefit by finishing ahead of us domestically this season.
Van Bronckhorst has made it no secret that this is the priority now, and all eyes are on Seville and Eintracht Frankfurt in only six days’ time.
Just as they did before the RB Leipzig second leg, Celtic fans will be begging for another German club to come up with the goods, and we pray that we can rub it in their faces at the full-time whistle.
Bring it on.
