Willie Collum in Rangers reversal as Goldson and Silva let-offs leave Hotline punters fuming
Celtic and Rangers may be blazing a trail in the Premiership and into the Scottish Cup quarter finals but Hotline callers reckon both have problems up top.
The Ibrox side made heavy weather of beating Ayr United on Saturday where Fabio Silva’s second goal in light bue eventually eased the nerves. A day later Celtic were made to battle by St Mirren with Kyogo Furuhashi netting a much-needed goal into the bargain. But fans still aren’t convinced.
Stephen Mulhern emailed: “It remains to be seen if Brendan Rodgers perseveres with the Idah-Kyogo combination after a hard fought win against St Mirren. Idah reminded me of another loan striker, Oliver Burke, who was as much good as Oliver Hardy. Celtic’s failure to buy Bojan Miovski in the transfer window was astonishing and if Rodgers has now decided that two up front is the answer going forward then this was a golden opportunity missed.” Meanwhile Kevin Kean, Inchinnan, said: “Several Rangers fans seem to think Fabio Silva is being played out of position because they heard a pundit saying it on the TV. He’s not, he's a box striker and not a very good one. He has neither the poise or ability to be a number 10. Anyway he's going back. Wolves won't take a £30 million hit if Rangers offer £5 million.”
Back to the Bhoys and Kenny Wilson, Moffat, said: “Job done for Celtic and a decent performance. Thought our defenders all had a good game against a St Mirren team who gave them plenty problems but I’ve never seen a team at any level as bad as us at set pieces. Every corner was taken short and possession lost straight away, how we don’t have a player that can take a corner is beyond me. The pitch also was not great but we were pretty comfortable in the end.”
