Brendan Rodgers Takes Sly Dig At Rangers Ahead Of Glasgow Derby

"But we just have to focus on our stuff and if we go there and prepare well and we'll be confident of taking something from it".

"If you ask any player, to play for their country is a massive honour, I am no different to that".

"So you never know".

"I got a goal there the time before last (in a 5-1 win) and it was a great day for the club as well", he said. They are top of the league.

In these circumstances, it is comforting for the underdogs to evoke some totemic occasion of past superiority and, for this occasion, Rangers paraded Gregory Vignal, their former full-back.

The home side are on a six-game win streak, whilst the Hoops have only won two of their last four matches.

McGeady told The Times: "I thought in their last game Celtic would wipe the floor with Rangers but they didn't and for me, Rangers were the better team". It is a new project.

Hay, writing in the Evening Times, feels that manager Brendan Rodgers may line up with a central back three, with Compper slotting in alongside Jozo Simunovic and Kristoffer Ajer.

"And if Celtic win it, it's [Rangers' title hopes] finished, it's as simple as that". We are not under pressure, Celtic are under pressure.

"What we have to do is make sure these games - there will be three of them - are meaningful between now and the end of the season".

A Rangers win at Ibrox will cut Celtic's lead at the top and will throw open the title race.

There are question marks over the strikers on both sides. Not only did he score the goal to finally break the deadlock early on in the second half, he was also able to consistently pick up the ball in pockets of space between Rangers' defense and midfield.

Murty believes the revival that Rangers have enjoyed has made the Old Firm game - which had become something of a non-event in the last two years due - an exciting spectacle once again and brought Scottish football back to the attention of the wider football public.
