Barry Ferguson can’t deny Celtic truth after Rangers sack Michael Beale

After Rangers fired Michael Beale, Barry Ferguson was unable to refute the existence of a “spirit building” at Celtic.

The team across the street fired yet another manager who, once again, didn’t even last a year as Celtic scored an incredible victory at Motherwell on Saturday.

The attitude and feeling inside Celtic under the re-entering Brendan Rodgers are very, very different from the boos directed at their team and manager by the Rangers supporters after they were defeated by Aberdeen at Ibrox.

With regard to Michael Beale’s departure, Barry Ferguson was unable to deny that. Instead, he praised Brendan Rodgers’ team for pushing themselves all the way to the finish line at Fir Park in order to secure the three points.

Celtic demonstrated in the opening Glasgow derby of the year that they could compete even with a depleted and injured team. Even if the score was 1-0, the three points could be given and that, let’s be honest, quite easily.

That last-ditch victory would have been accepted given that the team competed in the early kick-off on Saturday, with Rangers facing Aberdeen at 3 o’clock. It definitely was for Kris Boyd, who was made fun of about it in the Sky Sports studios.

Barry Ferguson lauds Celtic after Rangers sack Beale

“I spoke about this many a time,” said Ferguson. “When Celtic are playing. I expect Celtic to get the three points, so that means I need to do my job and get three points for my team.

On if Celtic result forced Rangers to push Beale out: “Listen, if Celtic go seven points clear, then that should make you even more determined to claw it back to four points.

“What that shows me is that there is a spirit starting to build at Celtic. 95 minutes when Blair Spittal scores, then fair play to Celtic for going into the final seconds of the game and getting that winner.”

A calm sea against the storm

The talk in the summer from the hyped-up Rangers fans was far, far different to what is being spilt out now.

Whilst there is a relaxing and calm sea going through Celtic, a storm is brewing on the other side, as the next man in the dugout at Ibrox has a huge, huge task on his hands.

There is already a seven-point lead, and by the time the next derby comes about, it could be double figures, which could then be extended further by the time the 90 minutes are up at Parkhead on 30th December.
