Their Last Bow?

So, the return of the Celtic/Rangers game has come and gone. It turned out to be an awful lot of hype and very little substance: rather than the old contest of near-equals, this one was very much a case of one fairly ordinary team nonetheless comprehensively outplaying another, far inferior team. They did enough to win the match, and then enough to stay in control of the match, without ever really showing what they could do. It really wasn't any sort of advert for Scottish football.

(It's also worth noting that the BBC's pre-match coverage was just dire. But that's another rant, and a fairly well-worn one by now.)

I do find myself wondering, though: this was the first Celtic/Rangers match for nearly three years; will it also be the last ever?
