The Rangers Manager, Steven Gerrard, has told the BBC that he “can’t wait for the whistle to go” against Celtic on Saturday after his Scottish Premiership leaders gained revenge over St Mirren.
The Buddies knocked Gerrard’s side out of the League Cup two weeks ago, but first-half goals from Roofe and Morelos gave them the win this time around.
As much as Celtic fans won’t like to hear it, Rangers have every right to go into Saturday’s derby game confident given that they are 16 points clear at the top, having played three games more. However, if there is any sense of overconfidence then Celtic should be inspired to bring them down a peg or two.
By all accounts Gerrard’s team performed well at new St Mirren Park, but he said “I pick a team I think can do a job against Celtic, not really on who scored in the last game or who is on form.”
Let’s hope that Celtic go all guns blazing and put a dent in the Ibrox club.
