The key difference between Rangers and Celtic showed today

Another Rangers game, another Alfredo Morelos goal and another predictable, obvious collapse. Every single person in Ibrox saw that coming.

With three minutes to go, we threw away two points. For the entire game, we huffed and puffed. We were lackadaisical, unprofessional and wasteful.

It’s embarrassing. Hibs offered very little and Rangers treated the second half like a training game. It was poor – but ultimately it highlights the major difference between us and Celtic.

They edged out three points at Pittodrie. We threw two away at Ibrox.

Celtic, for all the criticism they’ve had this year, have stepped up and answered any challenge thrown at them. Rangers have flopped, fell apart and bottled it when the same thing’s been demanded of us. Particularly domestically.

The poor away form at the beginning of the season, our record against the top six, every time we’ve played Aberdeen. It’s not been good enough.

And today, Hibs didn’t even deserve a point. It was as if we were genuinely determined to let them back into the game. But it’s just the same old story at Rangers this season. We’ve seen this movie before.

Celtic once again stood up the test, whilst we crumbled. And yes, there’s tired legs and plenty of injuries.

But the players who play still need to be able to stand up and grind out results in big matches.

That’s the difference between Rangers and Celtic at the moment. And after today’s result and performance, it’s hard to see that changing come Saturday afternoon.
