OLD Bhoy Kenny Miller has warned Celtic the Ibrox side WILL beat them this season – despite a third successive defeat against the Hoops yesterday.
The 37-year-old striker, who scored the opener in his team’s 2-1 loss, is confident Mark Warburton’s outfit will turn the tables on the champions.
The clubs will meet at least a further two times before the end of the campaign.
Celtic walloped Sevco 5-1 in the Premiership in September and followed that up with a 1-0 triumph on the Betfred League Cup semi-final a month later. And the Hoops completed the hat-trick with yesterday’s victory in Govan.
Miller, who spent a year at Parkhead after arriving from Wolves in 2006, said: “Of course, we can beat Celtic this season, there’s no doubt about that.
“Listen, they’re on an incredible run. They’ve won 15 league games on the bounce and that’s an unbelievable run at any level.
“But we had a real opportunity to beat them, especially at 1-0. In that part of the game, it felt as comfy as you possibly can be in an Old Firm game. So, we’re disappointed to lose the goal in the way we did.
”We’ve lost a proud home record for this team, undefeated in 15 months at Ibrox and we definitely didn’t want to give it up.
“Over the balance of the game, the way we started we were pretty comfortable. So, we’re really disappointed on a lot of fronts, personally, for the team, for the fans.”
Miller hit the post with 10 minutes remaining and admitted: “To be honest, it was more off my heel rather than the inside of my foot.
“You see them creep in the far corner, but I never got great contact on it. I’m really disappointed with it as it should have been 2-2.”
