Ex-Celtic star Bonner: Rangers absence has eased pressure

Celtic great Pat Bonner believes the fact that Glasgow rivals Rangers are no longer in the Scottish Premier League has eased the pressure on the Hoops…but not for the good.

Neil Lennon's men are not dominating like many thought they would when 'Gers were dropped to the Third Division and the former goalkeeper suggests it is because there is nobody really breathing down their necks in regards to the title race.

"If Rangers were beside Celtic in the SPL Celtic would probably be trailing them in the league," he told the Daily Record.

"The fact that Rangers aren't there has taken a bit of pressure off them.

"The fans aren't happy because they want Celtic to be winning and playing well every single week.

"With Rangers not being there they are still top of the league and the pressure has come off from a results point of view.

"Most of us think Celtic should be playing better but their form has not been great domestically."
