Postecoglou made to wait for title crown

Rangers have forced Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou to wait for his champions-elect to be officially crowned Scottish Premiership winners.

Rangers cut the deficit behind Celtic to six points with a one-sided 2-0 win over Dundee United at Ibrox on Sunday, even though the title remains on headed for Parkhead.

Postecoglou the former Socceroos boss, decided to take his sons to the movies instead of hanging around to discover if Rangers would slip up and drop the points which would seal Celtic’s title triumph.

Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst rang the changes following Thursday’s thrilling Europa League semi-final win over RB Leipzig and it took until the 55th minute for them to break through when skipper James Tavernier scored from the spot for his 17th goal of the season.

Substitute Amad Diallo added a second in the 78th minute to reduce the gap behind Celtic with two fixtures remaining – but Rangers still have a vastly inferior goal difference of 20 which makes the Hoops almost certain to reclaim the title.

Celtic themselves can put the issue to bed on Wednesday when they too play Dundee United.
