The Scottish League Cup will be decided between Celtic and the Rangers when the Glasgow take rivals take on each other at Hampden Park on Sunday. And heading into the final, the Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack has claimed that his side have nothing to fear when they take on Celtic.
Celtic have completely dominated Scottish football for the past several years and have won a Treble for three straight seasons. But the Rangers have emerged as genuine contenders this season. They are currently at second in the Premiership table, just two points behind the reigning champions. And Steven Gerrard’s men have not lost domestically since their 2-0 defeat at Ibrox at the hands of Neil Lennon’s side back in early September.
They also stumbled on Wednesday, when they surrendered a 2-0 lead away to come out with only one point from Aberdeen. But there will be cause for optimism in the Rangers’ camp regardless. They are unbeaten in 11 games and Celtic will have to be at their best if they are to win the League Cup for a fourth successive season on Sunday.
And now the Rangers midfielder, Ryan Jack, has claimed that his side have nothing to fear when they take on the Hoops at Hampden Park. Speaking with The Scottish Sun, Jack said:
“We’ve shown before we can compete at that level so there’s nothing to fear.
“The supporters are desperate and we’re desperate as well.”
The Rangers have never won a major trophy and will be hoping that they can bring an end to one of the darkest phases in the club’s history. Thus. the pressure will be immense on the shoulders of Steven Gerrard’s men. Celtic on the other hand have won everything that there is to win in Scottish football for three straight seasons. As a result, while a loss would be a setback, it will be nowhere near as catastrophic as it would be for the Rangers.
