It’s not uncommon for opinions to shift based on performance. What did McCulloch originally predict, and what changed his mind after the semi-finals?

Lee McCulloch reckons Celtic and Rangers will both drop points to other teams before the end of the season.

Going into the top six split fixtures, much stock has been placed in the Old Firm derby at Parkhead on May 11 with a general feeling it could be a title decided. However, McCulloch feels that both teams are looking far from convincing and that means they could drop points to either Hearts, Kilmarnock, St Mirren or Dundee.

The former Gers star recently predicted that both would win every game other than the meeting with each other but after watching them in their respective semi-finals over the weekend, has changed that forecast. Celtic required penalties to get past an Aberdeen side who gave them an almighty fright while the Light Blues still didn’t look in top gear despite beating Hearts
