Brendan Rodgers hit Sveco with ANOTHER dig ahead of Old Firm Derby

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has taken a dig at Rangers ahead of the Old Firm Derby at Ibrox on Sunday afternoon, as quoted by The Herald.

According to The Herald, Rangers boss Graeme Murty has revealed that after the Scottish Cup semi-final draw was made, his players were happy about it, as his side will be taking on bitter Old Firm rivals Celtic.

The former Liverpool and Swansea manager is not bothered about that, pointing out that the start of this present campaign, Rangers were planning on winning the league title.

He was pointing out to a Rangers card that displayed that the Gers were “Going for 55.”

“They obviously feel really, really confident but we’ve been there before – back when they were going for 55,” Rodgers told The Herald.

The Celtic manager added:

“It is a similar feeling, a similar noise. If you have that expectancy then great, you have to go and deliver.”

Rangers are in good form at the moment and the club will welcome their chances of winning against Celtic at Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday.

Celtic, though, are prime favourites, givent the club’s recent record in the Old Firm derby, and the fact that they have the best team in Scotland.

Their clash tomorrow promises to be a hugely exciting game of football.
