The hilarity continues for Rangers fans as Celtic drop a further two points in the title race meaning Rangers can go 23 points clear with victory over Motherwell.
The Parkhead club – decimated by their daft Dubai trip and players self-isolating courtesy of a positive Covid-19 test – were held 0-0 by Livingston in the Scottish Premiership.
Devoid of firepower and up against a stubborn and on-form Lions side, Celtic were probably second best in the game and were lucky to escape Parkhead with even a point.
Rangers will now turn their attention to Motherwell knowing that a win helps to build an unassailable gap at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
Even with three games in hand, Celtic can only cut Rangers’ lead at the top of the competition to 14 points which – even with a potential collapse – is surely enough to see out the title race.
Celtic have been in dire straights all season long and this recent bout of poor form is being enjoyed by the Rangers support just as much as that spell earlier in the season.
Knowing that their side are all but Champions mathematically, Rangers fans are already turning up the party atmosphere online.
It’s been a long time coming for the Rangers support and their reaction to Celtic’s draw on Twitter is just a taste of what’s to come:

A lesson for everyone to stop getting carried away
That’s our lead being eaten into again and now only 20 pts
If they win their games in hand, beat us twice, win each game 4-0 they might catch us if we lose a third of our games

Things might get better yet for Rangers fans as they look ahead to the remainder of the Scottish Premiership season.
If Celtic drop points in one more game than Rangers do before the Gers travel to Parkhead on March 20th, the Gers can win the league at Celtic Park.
