A look into football’s history will confirm that there are hardly any rivalries that are as fierce as the one between Celtic and Rangers.
And speaking of history, even after Celtic broke a 50 year old record today, manager Brendan Rodgers didn’t miss an opportunity to take a dig at Rangers.
The Hoops salvaged a 4-0 win against Hearts today and created history by winning their 27th consecutive domestic game, overtaking a feat that was first set by Jock Stein’s legendary Lisbon Lions back in 1967.
During the post-match interview, an elated Rodgers clearly minced no words while calling it a massive achievement for his side, provided that it’s a club “that has a 129 year old history”, which was cleverly worded jibe questioning the legitimacy of Rangers’ identity as an “old club” following the recent change in their administration.
That little smile when he says it! Check out Rodger’s dig against Rangers below –
