It seems as though I wasn’t the only one who was baffled by Gary Caldwell’s comments, as he appears to have confused a number of Celtic supporters with a recent comparison between his old club and Rangers.

Whilst speaking to BBC Sportsound, the former Celtic defender claimed Rangers are as good as Neil Lennon’s side, perhaps even better than their Glasgow rivals.

Celtic are currently 10-points clear of Rangers in the race for the title this season, and have also beaten them in two of the three meetings so far this campaign.

Caldwell did also suggest that Steven Gerrard’s side do not have the experience within their side to win the title this season, after allowing the Hoops to pull clear since the return from the winter break.

But his first claim about the strength of Rangers’ squad being equal to, or possibly greater than Celtic’s, has caused quite a stir on social media, as multiple fans have criticised him for his comments.
