Old foes driv­ing each other on

Evening Times - - LAST WORD -

Any­thing you can do, I can do bet­ter? That seems to be the case with Celtic and Rangers this season as the old ri­vals go toe-to­toe at home and abroad.

Try­ing to outdo each other is good for both clubs. Celtic are al­ready through to the last 32 of the Europa League but Rangers have qual­i­fi­ca­tion in their grasp and they’ll cer­tainly not want to be left be­hind.

On the do­mes­tic front, mean­while, the nip-and-tuck nature of the ti­tle race continues. His­tor­i­cally, it was al­ways like this; each team driv­ing each other on.

It’s a huge month com­ing up for both sides. Rangers, as I men­tioned, still need to put the lid on their Euro­pea League group cam­paign, there is the Bet­fred Cup fi­nal loom­ing on the hori­zon be­fore the two teams slug it out in the league at the end of the De­cem­ber.

Th­ese re­ally could be defin­ing mo­ments in the season and both teams will rel­ish the chal­lenge.

They’ll know, too, that if one slips up, the other will be wait­ing to pounce.
