Kris Boyd concedes the title to Celtic live on Sky Sports
Former Rangers striker Kris Boyd has conceded the title to Celtic live on Sky Sports this afternoon after watching the Hoops dominate at Ibrox.
Ange Postecoglou’s side did what not many expected them to do this afternoon. They went to Ibrox and ended their long-held domestic unbeaten run. Rangers hadn’t lost at home in the Premiership since a 1-0 defeat to Hamilton back in March 2020.
However, Celtic showed unreal character to come back from a 1-0 deficit to turn the game around by half-time. It now puts us in a beautiful position as we close in on reclaiming the title. And Boyd, who laughably said back in July that Ange should resign [Scottish Sun], has now changed his tune as he stated the league was now done and dusted:
The win stretches Celtic’s domestic unbeaten run to 32 and always gives them a huge psychological edge over their rivals. It follows February’s dominant 3-0 win at Parkhead over Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side.
Celtic are now just 4 wins away from the title, and that’s assuming Rangers win all of their games. Next up will be a home clash against St Johnstone, and the excitement is certainly now in overdrive.
Rangers will take the trip to St Mirren on Sunday after facing Braga in the Europa League later this week.
Kris Boyd left absolutely devastated as Celtic home in on title
This is almost surely the narrative we’re going to be hearing from Rangers pundits from now on. They’ll have to simply swallow their pride and come to terms with the fact it’s no longer in their hands.
Indeed, they now need favours and more than one of them. Celtic are in as strong a position as they’ve been all season with their squad as strong as it’s been all season. Everything is lining up perfectly, with a full week of rest before the game against Saints.
Boyd and his fellow pro-Rangers pundits will be absolutely gutted. And that’s a delightful thought for Celtic supporters who have had to deal with utter nonsense from them all season.
There’s something about today that just feels so justified. It feels as though everything we’ve worked towards this season was leading us to this moment. Yes, we’re wary of pretending the title race is officially over, but we surely can’t lose our grip from here.
Celtic will face Rangers again in 2 weeks’ time at Hampden in what will no doubt be another massive occasion. Knocking them out of the Scottish Cup would effectively end their domestic season and perhaps their season outright depending on how they fare against Braga.
But for now, we’re certainly going to enjoy this one. Today was absolutely beautiful.
