The need to comfort Ibrox fans on the back of another Celtic title success is reaching desperate proportions.

Last night the 80 minute league table emerged which took the title to Ibrox on goal difference with Steven Gerrard’s side gaining two points while Celtic lost seven from their final total.

Determined to join in the delusions somewhere at the Daily Record, or perhaps supplied by an outside source, comparisons are being made between the SPFL runners up and some of the most iconic players on the planet.

Wherever he is on holiday James Tavernier is probably too embarrassed to read about how he compares with Leo Messi and Ronaldo. His bank balance and trophy cabinet probably give the game away.

For 18 months Alfredo Morelos has been getting fed stories about his value that must be causing incredible confusion.

Between signing two contract extensions, presumably with pay hikes, he has been found out about £10m bids from China, interest from Turkey and France only to find out that the only bid this season was for 3m euros.

Without the distraction of the Copa America this summer the Colombian goal ace can console himself knowing that he reached 100 goals quicker than Messi or Wayne Rooney (except he never).
