Neil Lennon and Kris Boyd Clash Live Over Rangers Title Credentials

Saturday’s clash at Ibrox saw Philippe Clement’s side suffer a 2-1 loss to Stuart Kettlewell’s determined Motherwell, despite an outstanding second-half penalty from James Tavernier. This marked Rangers’ first home defeat under the Belgian manager and has sparked a war of words between Lennon and Boyd.

Lennon, expressing skepticism about Rangers’ championship potential, stated in an interview on Sky Sports Main Event on Sunday (3 March, 11:09): “Yesterday’s result will put a doubt in some people’s minds about their credentials. In terms of Rangers, they’re there or thereabouts, but I’m still to be convinced. Are you convinced?”

Boyd wasted no time in responding, staunchly defending Rangers’ chances: “I’m convinced. They were totally written off, out of it not that long ago, and now they’re back in the title race, and there’s a title race on.” Unyielding, Lennon shot back, saying: “Listen, if Rangers win the league, they deserve to win the league, but at the minute, I’m not convinced.”

As the Scottish Premiership intensifies, the clash between these two football pundits reflects the uncertainty surrounding Rangers’ ability to maintain their lead over Celtic in the quest for the coveted title. The debate now echoes across the footballing community, with fans eagerly watching as the season unfolds to see if Rangers can silence the doubters and secure the championship.
