TalkSPORT pundit Jamie O’Hara has admitted he was wrong to suggest Glasgow Rangers were not a huge side after their status as Scottish champions was confirmed.
O’Hara makes U-turn
O’Hara had previously suggested the Gers would be relegated if they were playing in the Premier League.
However, after seeing the celebrations from the club’s supporters after they clinched their 55th league title, the former Tottenham midfielder changed his mind. He said:
“Well I got it completely wrong.
“When you’re down here and down south you don’t realise how big Rangers are until something like that happens.
“When you see that and the atmosphere and the fans…they are a ginormous football club.
“In terms of what they’ve achieved and what they’ve done it’s unbelievable, when you’re down south you’re a bit naive to it.”
It was a laughable take from O’Hara in the first place, but he has at least mustered up the humility to admit he was wrong. While the Premier League is a lot more competitive than the Scottish Premiership, Rangers have dominated north of the border and remain unbeaten in the top tier (BBC). They have some real quality amongst their ranks in the form of Alfredo Morelos, Ryan Kent, Ianis Hagi and others, and their performances in the Europa League – they face Slavia Prague in the round of 16 on Thursday and are yet to lose in this season’s competition (Sky Sports) – show they can mix it with top sides.
Are you a fan of O'Hara?
Initially, they would struggle to compete financially, but as soon as they could reap the benefits of the large increase in T.V money, they would be a force to be reckoned with. O’Hara, finally, seems to realise that.
