Kris Boyd Thinks Rangers' Title Hopes Spent After Celtic Loss

Kris Boyd Thinks Rangers' Title Hopes Spent After Celtic Loss
By PJ Browne

Kris Boyd believes Celtic have an unassailable lead over Rangers in their Scottish Premiership title race.

Celtic extended their advantage to six points with a 2-1 victory over Rangers at Ibrox on Sunday. Rangers took an early lead through Aaron Ramsey only to see Celtic hit back swiftly with a goal from Tom Rogic. Shortly before half-time, Cameron Carter-Vickers gave Celtic a 2-1 lead.

Kris Boyd: Celtic and Rangers title race is 'over'

"It's over. It's finished. There's no doubt about it," former Rangers striker Boyd told Sky Sports.

"Celtic, on that form, we saw how good they are going forward but we've seen another side to them in terms of defending properly.

"I thought the two centre-backs, Starfelt and Carter-Vickers, were outstanding.

"There's sometimes when you look at Celtic and they can be left two-vs-two or one-vs-one but today every single time Rangers got to the byline and tried to put a ball in, Starfelt was there to cut in.

"It was proper defending from both of them.

"It was going to be very difficult for Rangers to get back into the title race anyway but it's done for me today."
