Celtic handed Neil Lennon the permanent reins at the club for the second time in his managerial career after he helped secure a historic treble treble.
Lennon took over as caretaker in February after Brendan Rodgers turned his back on the Hoops to take over at Premier League outfit Leicester City.
Despite the club looking into the prospect of appointing either Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho, Lennon received an offer after securing both the Premiership and Scottish Cup titles in May.
Rangers fans were quick to reveal their joy at the decision made by their bitter rivals, and backed Steven Gerrard to lead them to domestic glory next season.
“They’ve been wrong before. On numerous occasions,” Lennon responded on Sunday.
“So hopefully they’ll be wrong again.”
Rodgers completed a double treble during his time in Glasgow and started the current season with League Cup triumph.
Lennon managed to continue the fine form that the club had achieved under his fellow Northern Irishman, and has not held back in praising his predecessor.
He continued: “Brendan did the Invincible [season in 2016/17], then they won another treble and they were told they weren’t as good as the previous year.
“Now they’ve gone and won another treble. He set a huge benchmark which I want to follow.
“Rangers have got to try and stop us doing nine or ten, that’s their job.”
Rangers boss Gerrard impressed fans during his debut season despite failing to win a trophy.
Celtic fans should be very happy at the fact Rangers fans are so obsessed with Celtic even when we can’t be stopped, if Rangers are happy with another failed season then so be it, Celtic should just keep title number 9 on the radar and focus on that.
