"Complacency is the last hurdle standing between any team and its potential greatness."

Irrespective of the sport in question, the shrewd opinion of Pat Riley, multiple NBA-winning coach and President of Miami Heat, is on point. There has to be a restlessness, a desire, to keep moving. The message applies acutely to both Rangers and Celtic.

In a new decade, the previous 10 years of dominance of Scottish football by Celtic is officially ebbing away, with Rangers yesterday grasping, however inelegantly, the imperative. The Ibrox side have much to prove, mainly to themselves. Still unbeaten in 22 Premiership games this season, their statistics are eye-popping - but greatness can only emerge over time.
