‘Absolute joke’ – Celtic fans hit back at Daily Record journalist criticising Hoops and bigging up Rangers

Celtic fans have decided to hit back at one particular Daily Record journalist after criticising Hoops and bigging up Rangers.

Writer Keith Jackson published a column bigging up Rangers’ chances ahead of the Old Firm derby meeting on Saturday afternoon.

It will be their first derby of the season, with three points crucial for either side as Celtic look to go top of the table having played a game fewer.

However, the journalist described Celtic as having been “coughing and spluttering” their way through the season so far and went on to say that “Gerrard and his backroom staff are clinicians behind the scenes at Auchenhowie where no stone is left unturned.”

It adds that “If these key players are on top of their game, there is every reason to suspect Rangers will be adequately equipped to cause Celtic some significant problems just as they did on their last trip to the home of the champions, when the backdrop was a great deal more intimidating and febrile.”

Celtic fans were left angry with it, and that’s indeed the impression they made when letting Jackson know just where he’s wrong.

Fan website 66hailhail.com said on the article: “It’s all totally exaggerated by Jackson. Celtic are in a much better place than he seems to believe.

“It’s almost as if he’s blanking out performances such as the 3-0 home wins against Motherwell and Hibernian respectively. Or perhaps the 5-0 demolition of Ross County in Dingwall too.

“Yes, it hasn’t been our best start to the campaign performance-wise, but he’ll do well to remember that we’ve started better than Rangers – who’ve spluttered their way to two draws away from home. Hardly the sign of Champions that, is it?”
