The Old Firm Derby: Michael Beale and Ange Postecoglou Go Head-to-Head in Celtic v Rangers Clash.

Rangers Losing the Title to Postecoglou’s Unstoppable Celtic

It’s been a tough season for Rangers fans as they run hard but stand still in their pursuit of Celtic. Michael Beale’s team has improved, but they are pushing against an immovable object in Ange Postecoglou’s unstoppable Celtic. Every sacking down south gives rise to new rumors around the Celtic manager, with numerous clubs linked to him. Still, Postecoglou remains in Glasgow, a monumental thorn in Rangers’ side.

Rangers have won game after game, but the gap at the top seems never to change. They have glimpsed some light in the league, but every time, someone in Postecoglou’s team has come along to switch it off. If they’re not already broken, a defeat at Celtic Park on Saturday will certainly finish them off, making it a 12-point lead for the champions.

Beale has done remarkably well since taking over at Ibrox, with fourteen wins and a draw from his 15 league games as manager. Forty-three points from a possible 45, forty goals scored, and 13 conceded- impressive stats. However, Rangers are good, but not good enough, and their problem is not their results over the last five months, but the relentless nature of Celtic’s. If Postecoglou’s players were even a little bit off, then Rangers could have reeled them in on the results they’ve delivered under Beale, but they haven’t advanced one inch in the table.

Rangers face some tough decisions in the summer, with eight players out of contract, and a need to rebuild their team. If Beale lets most, or all, of them leave, he’s got £10-£15m a year in wages to play with. However, finding the right players to fill those spots will be brutally hard for Beale, and the odds are firmly against Rangers in their upcoming game against Celtic. With no away fans to encourage them, it’s almost like 11 versus 60,011, putting Rangers in the heart of the furnace.
