Unnecessary comments from John Collins.— Darren O'Dea (@odea_darren) August 9, 2015
Many would suggest that Collins’ comments about Scottish teams are disrespectful, but there is truth in them.
There is a reason why Celtic have won the Scottish league title for the past four years, and why they are going to clinch it yet again this season.
The Hoops simply do not face enough competition domestically, and that is the main reason why the Scottish Premiership title is a one-horse race.
Celtic’s failure to take Europe by storm owes much to this lack of competition in the Premiership.
It is not always easy to win against good teams when week after week one is used to facing mediocre sides.
