Martin O'Neill Claims Rangers Are Paranoid After Old Firm Derby Defeat

The gap between Scotland's two biggest clubs weighs largely in favour of Celtic, with Ange Postecoglou's side sitting 13 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership, on the brink of winning the title for a second year in a row.

After the Bhoys' 3-2 win over their arch rivals earlier this month, it's safe to say that Rangers went into meltdown. After the game, Rangers wrote to the SFA demanding answers on why Alfredo Morelos' goal was ruled out in the game.

Michael Beale's side were furious over the decision and wondered why VAR didn't overturn the referee's on-field decision.

Martin O'Neill accuses Rangers of "paranoia"

One man who knows a lot about clashes between the sides is former Celtic manager Martin O'Neill.

The Derry native gave his opinion on Rangers' salty reaction after the game and accused the club of "paranoia".

Martin O'Neill said:

I left paranoia behind some time ago, it must be starting again! It was good to see from a Celtic viewpoint that Rangers are now taking it on after that disallowed goal.

It's really great, something I never would have thought would happen. It is what it is, if you are going to win a league I don't think it matters what week it happens to be.

Rangers fans are obviously envious of the position Celtic are in at the moment.

Postecoglou's side are on the cusp of an 11th title in the past 12 years and with the side playing some fantastic football week in week out and dominating the Old-Firm derby clashes of recent times, it's easy to see how Rangers are so bitter.

This weekend, they meet again, in the semifinal of the Scottish Cup and should Celtic book a place in the final, there's bound to be more hysteria from the blue side of Glasgow .
