I’ve read some amount of guff from Kenny Miller over the years but this latest pile of nonsense takes the biscuit.
Miller, fresh from claiming “We won more points since Beale was appointed Cup” he has come our with more revisionist p*sh in his latest column.
“It doesn’t matter who becomes Celtic’s next manager. They’ll be facing a different animal across the city next season. I genuinely believe that. There’s something special brewing at Rangers. And in terms of a title race? Even now, I can see it being one of the tightest ever,” Miller wrote in his Daily Record column.
“This might sound strange after a year with no trophies. And that will never be acceptable. But towards the end of the campaign, there was a real air of positivity around Ibrox. The points gap at the top of the Premiership was less than it when Michael Beale was appointed.

“Now, he lost two massive Old F*rm cup games. I get that. They were decided on the finest of margins and it was Celtic’s year.
“They deserved their Treble because they were the best team in the country under Ange Postecoglou. But no-one can deny that Rangers were beginning to gather real momentum at the end.
For a start, the last two cup Glasgow Derby’s where not won under the “finest of margins”.
In the 1-0 win in the Scottish Cup semi final, Celtic won the match without ever getting out of second gear.
And in the League Cup Final, Celtic again were 2-0 up and cruising before Alfie scored in the 63rd minute but again, Celtic were rarely troubled and won the cup fairly comfortably.
But Miller can keep these fantasies going. If anything, they are amusing to the Celtic fans and for the Ibrox fans it feeds into their delusion that the gap between both clubs isn’t alll that bad.
And as for it not mattering who the next manager is? Martin O’Neill, Gordon Strachan, Neil Lennon, Brendan Rodgers and Ange Postecoglou are all proof that it bloody does well matter who the Celtic manager is.
Just like liquidation, it’s the hope that kills them.
