In a season where Rangers are threatening to run away with the title and – whisper it quietly – potentially go unbeaten, there are few touches which could add to the campaign.

The Gers support, starved of a title for 10 years, would see an explosion of joy should the club get the title tilt over the line and secure league championship number 55 this season.

The entire thing is made all the sweeter given the capitulation of Celtic and the arrogance of their supporters regarding the infamous 10, which has now undermined all their other achievements.

But could the Gers add insult to injury with one final dig to our rivals who won’t even be there to witness it?

As it stands, Rangers are 21 points clear but Celtic can cut that to 12 should they win all their games in hand.

With the Parkhead club currently ravaged due to Covid-19 there is no guarantee they’ll get through the next two games with six points let alone those three.

But nonetheless, let’s work on the premise they do.


Rangers travel to Celtic Park on the 20th of March on what will be the seventh last game of the season. After that match is complete, there will be 18 points to play for.

If Rangers can extend their lead beyond this mark on this day, then they’ll win the league at Celtic Park.

Looking at the form guide and where we’re at this season, there is every chance this is a possibility but we’ll need to see how the next two months go.

For some, they would rather keep the story about Rangers and see us win our first title in a decade at our home ground of Ibrox Stadium, a fitting end to our resurgent journey to the top.

But others may well enjoy the punishment we could inflict on our bitter rivals who’ve spent the last decade arrogantly shouting about a title they are now likely never to win.

Ibrox or Celtic Park? For me, both have their charms, but after all the nonsense we’ve had to put with these last 10 years, inflicting some scars of our own might help soothe the pain.
