Keith Jackson: ‘Legitimatequestions now asked after what Rangers are finally doing

Keith Jackson has questioned the resilience of the Celtic side after Rangers have been offering up a “decent fight” in the Scottish Premiership title race.

The journalist wrote on the Daily Record website on Monday (12 February)

that Celtic’s performances have been anything but consistent after

Brendan Rodgers spoke with a “sense of bewilderment” following his side’s 2-0 Scottish Cup victory against St Mirren on Sunday (11 February).

Jackson went on to say that the Northern Irishman now needs his players to “take a breath”

and ready for things to become a “great deal more tense”

Ibrox View: Rangers perfectly placed for £17.1m kitty, Clement can bring back glory days

as the season nears its end.”Rodgers spoke afterwards with a sense of bewilderment,

as if way too much is being made of his side’s slump in form having notched up eight wins and a draw from the last nine games,

” Jackson observed. “But, deep down, he will understand that,

while the results have been consistent, the performance levels have not.

“That’s why valid doubts are being raised about Celtic’s resilience now that Rangers are putting up a good fight on the other side of the city.

“What Rodgers needs now is for his players to take a breath and prepare themselves for things becoming a great deal more tense than they already are, as the season picks up pace towards the finish line.

” Rangers are tight on the heels of Celtic in the SPL title battle.
Celtic triumphed again over St Mirren on Sunday,

but it’s a game they should win every time, so it doesn’t give them much confidence.

While the Hoops remain at the top of the SPL standings,

their performances have been far from what their fans would anticipate.

The two Old Firm triumphs over Rangers have kept them at the top of the league,

with Philippe Clement’s team in fantastic form since his arrival at Ibrox.

The sole blemish on the Belgian’s record is a loss to the Parkhead club on December 30,

but he will be pleased with how his team has responded to that setback in recent weeks.

The Gers will continue to put pressure on their Glasgow rivals until the final ball is kicked,

as the title fight heats up even more in the final few months of the season.
