Another week, another meltdown from Celtic fans that has left their Rangers counterparts in no doubts who the real zombies are.
The Ibrox club stretched their lead over their Old Firm rivals in the title race to 13 points as the Gers trounced Ross County 4-0 and Celtic floundered to a 1-1 draw with St. Johnstone.
After their Betfred Cup exit last week Celtic fans aplenty flocked to Parkhead were violent scenes had to be condemned by their own club [Celtic].
This week, Celtic Park bosses put a ring around their stadium to avoid similar scenes with a heavy police presence in the area to prevent a riot kicking off.
After Celtic dropped yet more points – and with the Scottish Premiership trophy slipping out of their grasp – it didn’t stop swathes of supporters travelling to the stadium to protest.
That’s despite the fact we’re in a tier 4 lockdown in Glasgow amid a global pandemic which is locking supporters out of stadiums across the globe.

Now obviously this meltdown – which has now stretched the better part of two months – directly affects Rangers with Celtic our only realistic title counterpart.
The Parkhead club is in disarray and this kind of aggressive behaviour clearly isn’t helping with the club toiling on and off the field.
Rangers fans have been astounded at how quickly things have fallen apart across the city and took to Twitter to goad the Celtic support with one of their own insults as they took to the car park:
Celtic fans outside Celtic Park again 😂😂😂

Only motivation Celtic players needed was having to leave their cars ar Lennoxtown and be bused into and out of their own stadium under Police escort and for their own safety. Their own fans trying to attack them, and being held back by the Police. Motivational.

Whilst Rangers fans have certainly been enjoying the meltdown across the city there will be no one getting carried away before the club’s hands are on that legendary 55th title.
Nonetheless, the club’s supporters were in buoyant mood as Steven Gerrard’s side stretched their lead to 13 points in the Scottish Premiership.
