Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has already seen off five Celtic legends and if reports are to be believed, a sixth won’t be far behind.
Gers gaffer Gerrard has seen Brendan Rodgers escape Parkhead to return to the Premier League, whilst Peter Lawwell, Neil Lennon, and Scott Brown have all scampered off with him.
Terry Munro is the fifth – and most devastating – casualty of Celtic’s season as black armbands aplenty are worn in memorandum of a man none of us really ever knew. Ha.
Rodgers is at Leicester, Lawwell is retiring, Lennon is on the scrap heap and Terry is 10 feet under.
But Scott Brown will live to fight another day – only not in Celtic colours – as he signs a deal to work under new Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass as a player/coach.
And there could be one more Celtic hero set to leave in disgrace as out of sorts striker Leigh Griffiths is linked with a Pittodrie reunion with his long-term skipper.
According to the Sunday Post, “rumours are rife” that the Dons want Griffiths to team up with Celtic teammate Brown in the northeast next season.
However, any new Celtic manager will reportedly be afforded the opportunity to run the rule over the controversial striker who has had two very poor seasons at Celtic Park.
One of the main voices who goaded Rangers during the club’s time in the doldrums, Griffiths’ legacy at Parkhead is one of wasted talent and his bottle crashing as Rangers steadily improved.
As the Gers marched to the title – along with the likes of Brown – the question for many Celtic fans will be, where was he when the going got tough?
Rangers are 20 points clear in the Scottish Premiership, Champions by early March and all of Celtic’s heroes are being seen off by Stevie G, one, by, one.
Gers fans certainly enjoy the notion that Scott Brown will be turning out against the Champions next season in the red of Aberdeen rather than the green and white of Celtic.
