Spot on, King has just given the Scum ammunition to shoot us down with.

As soon as we saw King had been giving interviews we knew it was going to give them something to cling to.

His comments could have been a lot worse to be fair, but the timing was still terrible.

Hopefully the manager has used his relationship with him to tell him any comments like that are extremely unhelpful.

Well, you do keep a lot in house and have done for a very long time. But not everything.

Right, everyone at Rangers have a read of this. Then keep your head down, keep your mouth closed, prove it isn’t true and we’ll see you in May for the party to end all parties.

Leigh Griffiths adamant Celtic have a better squad than Rangers and insists no Ibrox stars would make Hoops 11.

The striker wasn't having the bravado from former Ibrox chairman Dave King.

Leigh Griffiths believes Celtic still have a better squad than Rangers and says he wouldn’t swap ANY Hoops player for Ibrox stars.

The Parkhead striker - who is back fit for their Premiership clash with St Johnstone on Sunday - is convinced that Neil Lennon’s men are still the best in the country.

Celtic are currently 11 points behind Rangers in the Premiership table and have won just two of their last 10 games in all competitions.

They’ve lost four goals in each of their last three Europa League ties - and were knocked out of the Betfred Cup by Ross County in Glasgow a week ago.

But Griffiths has total faith in his team-mates and expects them to quickly turn their season around.

When asked if he believed Celtic still had the best squad in Scotland, he said: “One million percent.

“I wouldn’t change anybody in our changing room for anyone else in Scotland.

“That’s my view on it and I think everybody else in here would feel the exact same way.

“But we need the results to start talking and hopefully that starts on Sunday.”

On Friday, ex-Rangers chairman Dave King boasted that Rangers’ pool of players is now valued at around £200 million.

He also claimed that Steven Gerrard’s side can win the title this season to stop Celtic’s bid for 10-in-a-row - before enjoying a sustained run of success.

But Griffiths says it would be foolish of anyone to write Lennon’s side off.

He said: “Listen, they can talk however they like. We keep everything in house.

“We know what we’re all about and if we keep doing our job, working hard in training, results will turn for us.

“We don’t listen to outside noise, it’s about what we do.

“And we want three points against St Johnstone on Sunday before moving on.”
“Hey there you with the smack face:......

Well, you do keep a lot in house and have done for a very long time. But not everything.
Lennon publicly said a couple of months ago that half of them need to fck off cos they don’t want to be there.

From the same people who had a go at Rangers for club statements then have released a dozen statements since.

We’ll stroll this league by 15-20 points if the rest of that squad genuinely think that.

Ill advised statement from King, not the smartest from someone that’s generally held in high esteem.
Griffiths comments cement the theory that he is nothing but a bigot that is totally out of touch with reality.

Did he say 'Working hard in training '?
What you doing then fat arse?
I suggest you keep your mouth shut and bring football boots to training and not a bag of doughnuts.
Keep up the good work ya knob.

He's very quiet for a man who loves to run his mouth.

Maybe a minute of audio at the window of a range rover?

Normally it's a sit down and the the editor is begging him to shut the hell up before he accidently indicts himself and then has to go through a twenty minute ramble in post anyway.

This was the type of shit you'd read from us 2 years ago when celtic were walking the league

We are doing our talking on the park this year, they aren't!

The question was asked to him because he's not bright enough to realise that HE is the one giving the hacks their headline. All it's going to do is appeal to the Frank in Haghills of their support who are daft enough to think they are invincible and have a dozen cans to tan while watching the game and that Blessed Brendan is still their manager.

Meanwhile on planet earth, that Express Train is just building up speed nicely.

There is an assumption that this interview even happened and some 'friendly' media haven't dreamed it up.

I've seen the Daily Mail and The Sun hit with legal charges for inventing less.

Thumbheid aint the sharpest knife in the drawer.

He would be daft enough to say this either in real life or in one of the BFG's best mixed Trogglehumpers ;)

Like their manager questioning players mentality and throwing them under the bus after losing, on more than one occasion.

Deffo sounds like keeping everything in house that

I always wonder why he never appears in European games is it because they do drug tests.
It will be interesting to see if he is unfit for the winter training camp.

More than happy for this narrative and the 'better' squad claims to continue, suits us perfectly.

He's a wee junkie lowlife tramp. That's a fact but really we shouldn't be giving them anything headline wise to cling on to.
We celebrate league titles in May when they are won and not a minute before.
I always remember the words of wee Johnny Hubbard in the wee Rangers club. Bill Struth says Celtc always win the league in March but the Rangers win it in May.
Give them not an inch Rangers. This is our year.
