Rangers fans have been responding to the claims of Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths that no current Ibrox star would get into the Parkhead XI.
Rangers are unbeaten in all competitions so far this season whilst Celtic have won only two of their last 11 games, losing three on the bounce.
That hasn’t stopped misfiring Celtic Park forward Griffiths from claiming that no-one at Rangers would get into the Parkhead team.
“One million percent [we have the better squad],” said Griffiths [Daily Record].
“I wouldn’t change anybody in our changing room for anyone else in Scotland.
“That’s my view on it and I think everybody else in here would feel the exact same way.
“But we need the results to start talking and hopefully that starts on Sunday.”
Griffiths’ comments also come after outgoing Rangers chairman Dave King claimed that this current Ibrox squad – which is making a big impression on the continental stage – could be worth £200m.
“If you were to give me a figure, I’d say it could even be as high as £200m, if you take the total squad,” said King [STV].
Griffiths would then take a dig at these comments, suggesting that Celtic keep everything in house whilst simultaneously discussing Rangers to the Daily Record.
“Listen, they can talk however they like. We keep everything in house,” said Griffiths.
“We know what we’re all about and if we keep doing our job, working hard in training, results will turn for us.
“We don’t listen to outside noise, it’s about what we do.”
Here’s how Rangers fans reacted to the comments of Leigh Griffiths on Twitter:
“We keep everything in house.”

Love how even though we're 11 pointa clear of them they still delude themselves that rangers aren't a threat, it will be their ultimate undoing

This cliché has appeared numerous times in Celtic circles and Rangers fans have previously spoken out about those Celtic-centric voices who have pushed this message in the past.
Not that this notion doesn’t benefit Rangers; ignorance over the Ibrox club’s development has played a major role in Celtic’s regression.
