Rangers are clearly at the top of the Premier League and their run in the Europa League increases the Scottish coefficient

The nation has two Champions League places in qualifying for next season Should the Ibrox team win again against Royal Antwerp at Ibrox on Thursday, they will improve the top position in the direction of an automatic group stage place in the following season

Muir Fulton, Ayr, was on the line to praise the work of the Rangers on the continent as the ranking points rise and fall

He said: “Rangers have won 52 percent of all coefficient points the Scottish clubs have accumulated. Since Steven Gerrard came on, we have played 42 games, won 23, drawn 15 and lost five with 22 goals against

“We now have the league winners who will only play one Champions League qualifier next season, and possibly a team that will go straight to the Champions League the following season This will help clubs like Aberdeen and Hibs get into the Europa League groups or straight into the Champions League, the new Europa Conference League ”

Brian McColligan saw the light blues progress differently, explaining: “The Rangers have lost more goals (10) in the last five Europa League games, to be honest, teams from outside the top five European leagues You have played in 29 league games in Scotland Does this put into perspective how bad Scottish football actually is at this point? “

Neil Lennon and David Martindale wondered why all the Scottish clubs were accepted by Nicola Sturgeon when asked about the Ibrox Covid Five last week

Tom Paterson, Falkirk, was not impressed with the attitude of the Celtic manager and said: “You mentioned both Old Firm clubs because you are the two biggest and most powerful clubs in Scotland and you must have understood even the two biggest clubs putting their house in order And while Rangers’ record is worse, Celtic are not free from criticism either ”

Stuart McLeod emailed: “I didn’t see Neil as defensive when Rangers and Ayr were mentioned when Celtic was wrong

“There have been a lot of mistakes made by numerous clubs and the people who committed the crimes should all be severely punished. The clubs should try to end the season as safely as possible and not the victim card play – if we ever need everyone to pull themselves together, now is the time ”

Henry Moffat, Stirling, spoke out in defense of the Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, who had stuck on the hotline a bit

He said, “I’ve had quite a good chuckle lately from caller Chris Lowe who keeps calling and saying Edouard can only score penalties just so the Frenchman can hit goal by goal and sail straight to the top of the line Scoring charts

“If Alfredo Morelos can score like Eddy against Celtic, AC Milan or Leipzig, I might stop laughing”

Hibs fan George Fairgrieve was delighted with the appearance of young defender Josh Doig during his team’s weekend win over Hamilton. He said, “The more I see young Doig, the more I draw parallels with John Brownlie of this beautiful Hibs side of the 1970s An attacking full-back with serious potential ”

Kevin Lord, Drylaw, had a comment on the red card Accie’s defender Jamie Hamilton lost to after a Martin Boyle failure

He said, “Hamilton’s attack on Boyle ‘wasn’t that bad’ because he MISSed on his foreleg. If he’d caught him, Boyle would have been in intensive care”

On issues across Edinburgh, Rab Hunter, Dumfries said, “After Robbie Neilson was banned from four games for having the audacity to resolve a number of questionable decisions, I wonder what will happen to the game Alloa manager who stated that the umpire was a cheat and that his performance was disgusting, or is this just being ignored since it is not Hearts and he has Celtic connections? “

Kilmarnock is having a hot time and Stephen Johnstone, Ardentinny, said, “Tommy wasn’t the Wright appointment for Kilmarnock, you are still Dyer and should have stayed with Alex to fight relegation”
