Former Celtic assistant picks out key difference between champions and Rangers this term
The reigning champions have been playing catch-up all campaign after falling behind early in the season due to having matches postponed following Boli Bolingoli’s breaking of Covid-19 protocols. Collins reckons this then had a massive impact on their season.
He said on the Sky Sports broadcast: "It all comes down to Celtic falling behind in terms of points earlier in the season. That then brings tension and a stress and this season Celtic have struggled to cope with that.
"Rangers have been out in front, they’ve been relaxed, composed and consistent. They’re scoring goals and, what they’re really doing, is not conceding any soft goals.”
