They pushed forward more and there was a lot more space in the middle but after that penalty we came closer to scoring than t...

Re: MIGHTY CLARETS versus Tottering Rotspurs

As improved as Spurs were second half, how many saves did Pope have to make? Many of their passages of play came simply from us being open because, to our credit, we were still pushing for a winner.

Rangers lack the mentality to be successful at the moment. As superior as Celtic are to the rest of the league in terms of quality, they’ve achieved the treble-treble by having top class bottle. There’s an inevitability about them turning bad results around.
