We often hear about how there are “levels” to things, well, the final Old Firm derby couldn’t have given us a better example when comparing to veteran’s in the middle of the park.
Over the Ibrox tannoy, the announcement that Steven Davis was the sponsors man of the match would have be something that sent a shiver down Scott Brown’s spine as he sat, freezing cold, refusing to put a jacket on because he’s hard and all that.
Since Steven Gerrard arrived at Rangers, even if the league table or trophy count may have been in Celtic’s favour, there has been a consistency in Old Firm performances, whenever we turned up, we won, and it was no different on Sunday. That their captain was taken off after 60 minutes says it all for the biggest fraud Scottish football has ever seen when the man directly opposite him controlled the tempo of the whole game.
Brown was hopeless, turned inside out on numerous occasions and was perfectly nutmegged by Alfredo Morelos for our second goal whereas Davis displayed exactly why he has been given another year at Rangers at the other end of the park when he reeled in Odsonne Edouard to block a certain goal.
Vital Rangers Young Player of the Year
Davis still has plenty of pace, has the best passing range of any player in Scotland and has not missed a single game through injury or suspension this season – remember, he is 36-years old, a year older than the joke figure across the city.
One last dance? It’s fitting that he’s been shown up for what he really is this season alongside the likes of Leigh Griffiths and it couldn’t have happened to a nicer player, that he chose to blame the ref instead of looking at his own pathetic performance says it all.
