IT may not be as difficult for Celtic to overturn Rangers next season as many are predicting according to Parkhead legend Lubomir Moravcik, who believes that the Ibrox side are ‘not such a strong team’.

Moravcik, who was speaking to The Celtic Huddle Podcast, thinks that his former club can turn around the 23-point gap that currently exists between the clubs if they get the right players in during the summer transfer window.

He says that gap is artificial because of how early Celtic were out of the title race, and thinks that his former club can reel in a Rangers team who he hasn’t been overly impressed by.

“It depends on the transfer market and the quality of players [the new manager] can bring in,” he said. “We need players who can play quick and are technically good.

“I watched Rangers against Slavia Prague twice, and Rangers for me are not such a strong team. It’s a good team, but I don’t think it is a team full of stars or great players.

“It’s very solid because they have worked hard with the coach and the manager, but I think Celtic are 23 points behind because this season it was over very early. In December it was finished for Celtic.

“It’s not going to be easy, Rangers dominated the league this season. But I saw that their last five or six results were 1-0 or 2-1. It was not 5-0 or 6-0.

“I don’t think it’s impossible to catch Rangers next season, I think it’s possible with a new manager and new players and attractive football.

“It must be attractive football, that’s the most important thing, because I hope that fans will be back in the stadium and that will also motivate the players for the new season.

“Celtic are going to be a better team, I’m sure.”
