Rangers news: Celtic hero admits how Steven Gerrard can win Scottish Premiership title | Football | Sport


Rangers could beat Celtic to the Scottish Premiership title this season, according to former Hoops striker Andy Walker.

But, only if Rangers manager Steven Gerrard manages to keep his strike force duo Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe fit.

Defoe and Morelos are the club’s leading goalscorers in the league this season.

Morelos – who is still only 23 years old – has five goals, while veteran Defoe has bagged nine, and is currently the leading goalscorer in the league.

“I think this is going to be a terrific season,” Walker told Sky Sports.

“I think you have to admire Rangers and the way they have responded [since the Old Firm defeat]. Aside from the [Europa League] defeat against Young Boys, their response has been terrific.

“I don’t think we’re going to see many points given up by Celtic and Rangers.

“Admittedly, Celtic have followed up a draw with a defeat. I think they’re going to prove to be really debilitating in their quest for the title.

“If Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe steer clear of injury, I think Rangers have every chance [of winning the title].

“I think from middle to front they’re creating chances. Connor Goldson is looking strong at the back but he’s also popping up with a regular goal or two.

“The response since losing to Celtic has been absolutely first class.

“And, make no doubt, the title race is going right to the end of the season.”

Rangers leapfrogged Celtic in the league table this weekend, and now find themselves two points clear of Neil Lennon’s side.

Celtic lost 2-0 away at Livingston, with Ryan Christie sent off after just 26 minutes.

The Hoops also dropped two points the previous week, when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Hibernian.

Rangers, meanwhile, followed up their 5-0 win over Aberdeen with a 5-0 win over Hamilton this weekend.
