Hoops’ rivals throwing in the towel

Manager Steven Gerrard gave a surprising post match interview, appearing to surrender the title.

He said on Clyde 1: “Forget titles, forget closing gaps, if you’ve got a group of lads out there and they give you that when they’ve got a chance to close to three points, that’s not what is required, it’s miles away from it.”

Furthermore, the Ibrox side’s closest contenders Aberdeen could only contest a 2-2 draw against St Mirren.

The Hoops are clearly on their way to eight league titles, throwing any domestic opponent aside.

Credit to the managers and the players for overcoming any adversity this season and are leading the way.
