Celtic legend John Hartson has suggested that whoever wins the Betfred Cup will have gained priceless momentum for the title race as both Celtic and Rangers are sitting so close at the top of the table.
Both Glasgow teams are joint top with 28 points from 11 games this season and the Scottish media would love it to go right down to the wire but Celtic are far too strong this season, it would take a miracle for Rangers to not drop anymore points and to beat the Champions the rest of the season.
“It would be a major coup for Rangers to win the final,” Hartson said to the Glasgow Evening Times.
“They’ve got to find a way to stop Celtic. Celtic have just been ridiculous with their domination. Nine trophies out of nine, it’s almost embarrassing, isn’t it?
“Winning a cup final does give you momentum and with there being nothing between them in the league so far, it can make a big difference to get that first piece of silverware.”
Celtic dominating Scottish football has become embarrassing for the sheer fact that no other club can step up to the mark and challenge, Rangers claim to be a massive club with a large fan base but in reality they are a new club owned by crooks that have piles and piles of debt.
