Winner faces Aberdeen away - already been a few fiesty games between Rangers and the Dons!

Celtic home to Hibs.
Taking nowt for granted as Killie will be a tough one. If Rangers do get through, then yeah, that should be a cracker.

Just for info SH....Celtic are away to Hibs....another belter of a game. But I also like the look of the Dundee Utd v Inverness or Ross County game as well.

Celtic leaving it late !

Guess Brown was sent off for the celebration?
yep, left the field of play and went towards the fans....2nd yellow. Actually i think it's a nonsense of a rule when it is your own fans. Didn't help though with all the fans running from the stands and surrounding Brown and onto the pitch also.

Now that Gerrard has conceded the title, how do you see the season panning out for yourselves?
I am of the opinion that Gerrard said what he said for two reasons. Firstly, an honest opinion due to the points gap but, & more importantly imo, to give the a players a kick up the arse regards consistency in an effort to produce better.

Rest of the season.....hmmm. Second place is best we can hope for this season in the league and it helped last night while we beat Dundee 4-0 (and last weekend Hamilton 0-5 away), Aberdeen lost at home to Hamilton which gives us an 8 point gap to them in 3rd. I'm not going to gloat over that because Rangers have dropped points this season that nobody seen coming when in all honesty they shouldn't have. There is also the Scottish Cup to be played for and once again we are away to Aberdeen in the quarters Sunday coming. That will be very interesting and I have no doubt it will be a totally different attitude from them compared to playing Hamilton last night.

Leo I was talking to a Rangers supporter mate today and he reckons that Morelos will be playing in the Premier League next season. That will be a big blow if true?

Certainly will mate. As much as he can be a pain in the arse at times with his petulance and silly behaviour leading to suspensions....he is a phenomenal goal scorer. Defoe could do the biz for us as he has a few goals under his belt but a totally different type of player & not as physical. I did read a short article where Morelos is quoted saying that he 'expects' to be playing elsewhere next season so it looks as if he will be away. Irrespective of what people value him at, I hope Rangers don't buckle & sell him on the cheap as we will have to buy a very decent replacement.

Is he out of contract this season?

1-1 draw at Pittodrie yesterday in the Scottish Cup. Had to listen to Radio commentary and going by that Rangers were poor first half but bucked up their ideas 2nd. Seems like the draw was the fair result. Not as entertaining as the 2-4 game a couple of weeks ago but there you go. Replay 12th March at Ibrox.

Just read that Morelos is heading to Leicester. Should give the 'gers a massive financial boost.
Where did you get that mate ? Haven't heard a dicky bird. If he does go in the summer hopefully it's for silly money to replace him. Morelos is an enigma most certainly. Great scorer but where his mind is at at times is a mystery.

Noticed that Dave. I don't personally follow championship but it's certainly a good thing for fans of these sides. I had a check on upcoming games and there are a good few to come. Think they're all on Friday evenings

Difficult game at Easter Road tonight. 'Mon the Gers. Hopefully a decent game and that both sets of supporters behave themselves. Isn't it fucking sad that this actually has to be mentioned.

It was a good game but we flung two points away as the game in all honesty should have been dead and buried first half. Number of excellent chances we missed...well, you simply can't afford that and as per Hibs nicked a goal. Unfortunately the game was again marred by a fucking clown running on from a Hibs stand and having a go at Tavernier. Thankfully he was huckled and Leeann Dempster has confirmed he is permanently banned from Easter Road.

It's good that after Gerrard saying at the start of the season that Rangers were a class above Aberdeen they have lost to them three times at home and been knocked out of both cups.

For all the 'resurgence' their season is over and they are rubbish and embarrassing as they have been since 2012. No surprise that Gerrard has made an utter fool of himself.

You come on to have your usual dig at Rangers....no surprise there tbh as you simply are incapable of having any reasonable debate. But...............What was it you said at the start of the season ? Something like it would be utterly astonishing if he was still at Ibrox come February or similar and that would be worthy of praise indeed ? Be a man rather than the lilly livered creep that you are and give that praise. Grow a pair you clown!.....:lol:

Dismal draw at home yesterday to a team apparently that had no interest in trying to play a game of football and scored with a breakaway. Having said that it was Rangers job to break them down as we had the vast %age of possession but ultimately couldn't, well not enough to get a winner. Only good thing to come out of the results yesterday was that Aberdeen only managed a draw at home to Livi.

Although the league is basically over this is a huge game for us away to Celtic today. At the moment we are 6 clear in 2nd place from Kilmarnock. Any kind of draw/win today would be very welcome but tbh I really cannot see Rangers coming away with all 3 points. A draw would be decent.

We're all off out in 5 minutes (9.30 am). As a person that doesn't drink I find it all a bit boring, but looking forward to the game. I hope there are no incidents

Ryan Kent should have gone too and I believe Halliday was sent off after the game. Not a great game. Celtic were quite predictable and needed a key to unlock the Rangers mass defence. Still pretty well confirms Celtic as champions.

Not the greatest first half from Rangers and went 1-0 down after we lost possession far too easily from a freekick in Celtic's half allowing Edouard to break well and slot it home. Rangers defended fairly well first half and actually had to thanks to Morelos rising to the bait having had his ankle deliberately clipped by Brown from behind. So Morelos being Morelos couldn't keep his temper in check and swung out his left arm and caught Brown in the face, this being seen by the linesman. Arsehole and once again let his team mates and the club down. My opinion of him now is......if any decent bid comes in for Morelos during the summer, snatch their f*cking hands off and take it!

Aye RB is correct, Kent should have seen red for lashing out at....hmmm, I wonder who....Brown. I honestly don't know what happened for Kent to react as he did because in games I have seen him, he has taken a fair bit of punishment with challenges and he has never reacted in that fashion.

Second half Rangers were, imo, the better team & that was with 10 men and deservedly got an equaliser through Kent and shortly after Jack had a great chance to get a second but failed to connect properly. Another balls up, this time by Tavernier with a terrible pass, gave Celtic the opportunity to get their 2nd. Halliday did get a 2nd yellow so a red after the game.

No complaints from me....deserved win for Celtic.

I love reading your posts Leo because I believe you are a thoroughly honest and decent bloke.

Unfortunately mate there was a lot of battling in the City centre after the game between both sets of supporters. In a situation like that it would be foolish to try and apportion blame as we all know that both clubs have their fair share of rockets. However, even more unfortunate is the fact that a Celtic fan was stabbed in the neck during one of the disturbances ffs! At this time I haven't heard his status. Honestly RB I truly despair how a %age of supposed football fans behave in such a manner. This season we've had objects thrown at linesmen, players....we've had idiots running on to the pitch at players and now this. Absolutely disgraceful and I hope the scum who stabbed the guy is caught & undergoes the full process of the judicial system!
