Kris Boyd Deems Title Race Over as Rangers Face Shocking Collapse

Rangers’ unexpected stalemate against Dundee and a recent disheartening loss against Ross County, former Ibrox striker Kris Boyd expressed his grim assessment, asserting that the title race is effectively concluded.

Boyd, now a pundit for Sky Sports, articulated his dismay, stating, “I said after the Rangers vs Celtic game at Ibrox that it was going to be a tough ask, but they’ve made it a lot harder now. Rangers can go and win that game at Celtic Park now and it’s still irrelevant. There’s five goals in it as well… I just can’t see any way back for Rangers now.”

The draw at Dens Park extended Rangers’ gap behind Celtic, who now enjoy a three-point lead along with a superior goal difference. The necessity for Philippe Clement’s side to win all remaining five fixtures, including the pivotal Old Firm clash at Parkhead next month, has further diminished their prospects of lifting the league trophy.

Addressing the prevailing sentiment, Boyd waved the white flag, signaling an acceptance of Rangers’ diminished chances. He emphasized the significant challenge ahead for his former club, suggesting that the gap in both points and goal difference is insurmountable.

Contrasting Boyd’s somber perspective, Celtic luminary Chris Sutton adopted a more optimistic stance, affirming Celtic’s advantageous position in the race. “Is it Celtic’s to lose? Of course it is. They are in front, three points ahead. I bet they can’t believe what they are seeing. I do think they will win it,” Sutton remarked, exuding confidence in his former team’s ability to maintain their lead and secure the title.
