Rangers have all to do as they take on Celtic who are leading the table by 10 points. At the winter break, Rangers went in level on points against the Hoops, and everyone hoped for a closer title race after the Gers managed to get the better of Celtic at Ibrox. However, Celtic have raced ahead in the title race, and they would be the favourites to go 13 points clear on current form
But, the Gers need to keep on believing and for any hope of them running Celtic close depends on the Sunday’s game which is more or less a must-win for Gerrard’s men.
Gerrard clearly downplayed Celtic’s home support and their home record when a journalist asked how he can get a result in ‘the Lion’s Den’. Here is how he responded.

A Rangers fan was slightly sceptical as he believed there could be actual lions.
Think Gerrard has been a bit hasty. What if they actually have lions? Wouldn’t put anything past those sneaky catholics.

Croatian left-back Borna Barisic is out of this clash, and some Rangers fans were happy with it as Andy Halliday is the one who is going to replace him.
Barisic out of Sundays game, Halliday more than capable of stepping up and into left back

Andy halliday will play left back. After all. He was man of the match in the december old firm 😉😉

Andy Halliday put in a massive performance when the two sides met the last time around. Rangers fans are again pinning their hopes on one of their own.

Can definitely expect one of these crunching tackles flying in tomorrow.

No doubt that Rangers will be pinning their hopes on ‘El Bufalo’ to open Celtic up. Below is a compilation of some of his best moments in a Rangers shirt. Definitely will get you in the mood for the derby.

Charlie Nicholas of Sky Sports said, ”Celtic are hurting from the defeat & the way that Rangers celebrated at Ibrox surprised me…I think revenge is in the air.” This is how one Rangers fan reacted to it.
THEY DID A FUCKING LAP OF HONOUR IN SEPTEMBER. https://t.co/LRdtBsSWnh

Can’t blame either of the sides for celebrating jubilantly after their previous wins. A win in games of these nature is always special, and you wouldn’t want the players to just take it as a routine win by clapping for 10 seconds and going back in the dressing room.
Optimism is always good.
I actuslly have a good feeling about sunday. Im confident rangers will win.

One of the fans wants Rangers to start with McCrorie, and we too would agree with him. The midfield three at Ibrox did a terrific job, and if possible, Gerrard should go in with the same three again.
My team for Sunday McGregor
Tav Goldson Katic Halliday
Jack Arfield McCrorie Kent Candeias Morelos

That’s the script on how Rangers should approach the game, but things don’t always follow like that on a football pitch. But that is what Rangers should aspire to do. Start off the same way they did at Ibrox by pressing them high and then look to grab a goal.
Go toe to toe like we did at Ibrox and Get an early goal on Sunday and them cunts will buckle it will leave them chasing the game then hit them on the break and grab another 1 or 2
