Let’s Talk About Celtic and Rangers. With the new season slowly creeping up on us, let’s talk about the Old Firm and both clubs.
Starting with Celtic, who won last seasons league and were classed as invincible’s after not losing a game domestically all season, The Green side of Glasgow haven’t really gotten rid of any key players this season, and have improved in squad depth with the likes of star signing Oliver Ntcham from Manchester City and Jonny Hayes from Aberdeen. I can’t really see Celtic being challenged for the league this season either.
Rangers, who have let Andy Halliday go out on loan. Barrie McKay and Matt Crooks have also departed, but not to worry as they have acquired Portuguese International Bruno Alves and Mexican Internationals Carlos Pena and Eduardo Herrera along with Alfredo Morelos from HJK Helsinki.
Rangers have failed to beat Celtic since March 2012 in 90minutes and Celtic have a 4-match unbeaten run in the Premiership since Rangers re-joined the top league.
Season ticket stats (as of end of July 2017)
Celtic have impressively sold out of season tickets mid-july, managing to shift 52,500 tickets which is the best sales for 12 years.
Rangers however, have only managed to sell under 45,000 tickets, which is still impressive considering last season’s sales were at 33,000.
