Celtic's Alan Thompson has said that he is extremely certain that the final old firm derby of the season will not be different from the ones that have been played over the years.
This is certainly a unique situation whereby this could be the last old firm derby ever. Rangers are currently in a difficult financial situation after having been put into administration following their failure to pay the taxes. It is thought that Rangers are in debt burden that could be as high as £ 50 million. No buyer has been found for the club as of yet, which has put their future in huge doubt.
Celtic have recently claimed that they do not require the presence of their long standing rivals Rangers in order to be successful.
This comes as a retaliation to comment’s made my Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond, who claimed that the survival of Rangers was crucial for not only Celtic, but the whole of Scottish football to prosper.
Celtic’s rivals Rangers have been plunged into administration, with £8 million being unpaid in tax since Craig Whyte took over the club in May.
Celtic managed to get a narrow 1-0 victory over Rangers, which propelled them to the top of the Scottish Premier League table. Rangers have been dominate since the start of the season, but have started to slip of late.
