Welcome to the thread of one of the biggest clubs in the world in which other clubs can only dream about having such a huge support.

We are now back in the 'big time' so to speak given us a path to where we belong.....Europe.

As for tomorrow's game against Hamilton I make Rangers a 4/7 shot and 2/5 seems a tad short imho.

Having said that, we have signed seven decent players including Joey Barton whom I rate as a class act.

As for Septic, bring it on I say.

It seems being humiliated by Derek McInnes reality is starting to finally dawn on the Sevconians. A Rangers supporting ex player at a smaller club without even a training ground told them to shove their job up their arse. They are seeing what they truly are now, just an ordinary club with a large support stuck in past glories. There is no money, no sugar daddy, nothing to change the outlook.

Their foreseeable future is battling for second place. There will be no titles. Success will be a cup every few years. As Dave King said there were no decent managers interested in the Sevco job. None. Let that sink in.

Have a nice day Grin

Tic fans laughing because we're still looking for a decent manager while they're stuck with their useless manager who has all the tactical awareness of a traffic light.

They believe all his stories about how great he is and how great the team is, but he will be gone as soon as this second rate celtic team face some serious competition.

He's getting an easy ride at the moment but even tic fans will accept how poor things are at celtic park once things start to go wrong.

So another grubby little chapter in Rangers book of shame is rendered. They don't even treat their own with veneration. The statement regarding McInnes is beyond reproach, and  now they have to go back to Murty with their tail between their legs. You blue noses wonder why your team are demonstrably the most abhorred club in Scotland, you might want to ponder the reasons for that , because it sure isn't jealousy.

I was on Boyata 30/1 to get a red Sad ref shiit it. If it's a foul it's a second yellow.

Also on Brown to be booked. Waste of time he can foul as many times as he likes nothing happens. Also needed Lustig to be booked for a 100/1 skybet requestabet thingy. Again fouls many times nothing happens. Celtic looked a very ordinary team.

Should be a very tasty game at Easter Road on Wednesday. Very keen on the bookings but these fiery games you seem to get refs that are more interested in keeping players on the pitch than doing their jobs.

Struggling to beat Ross County at home is hardly progress. Can't see them beating Hibs on Wednesday.
