Some Celtic fans have been left amused by Ranger manager Steven Gerrard’s comments about Neil Lennon and his squad celebrating at Pittodrie last week.

Admitting he questioned himself after celebrating wildly at Celtic Park in December, Gerrard has since felt absolved of any error after watching the way Lennon enjoyed our 2-1 victory at Pittodrie.

As quoted by The Daily Mail, he said: “I’ll never apologise for being authentic. I am passionate after a win. I don’t think people on the outside understand the pressures you are under in that moment.


“I do ask myself if it was too much but then I think Celtic beat Aberdeen last weekend, and 11 players and Neil Lennon are jumping about and celebrating with the fans. I’m totally fine with it.”

What Gerrard is missing is that, at the time, Lennon was celebrating moving 13 points clear at the top of the table whereas his screaming into the camera signified moving to within two points of the Hoops.

They started the derby at Celtic Park in second place and ended it second place despite the victory.

It’s been proven in the time since that the Rangers optimism and confidence in the wake of that derby win was incredibly misplaced.

They’ve fallen away in a big way, now finding themselves 12 points adrift after a dreadful return from the winter break.
