When the title will be won as Rangers legend predicts more Celtic suffering and ultimate drama
Rangers legend John Brown has predicted a thrilling Old Firm Scottish Premiership title race that could be decided by goal difference on the final day.
That’s how close he thinks it is between his old club and defending champions and fierce rivals Celtic with the final two derby clashes likely to be crucial in the battle. Philippe Clement’s Light Blues could go top of the table if they beat relegation-threatened Ross County by a three-goal margin at Ibrox Stadium on Wednesday.
Rangers have been second in the table to the Hoops for the last TWO YEARS and hitting the summit could be a psychological boost. The Ibrox side trailed Celtic, Treble winners last season, by seven points when Michael Beale was axed and Belgian Clement has helped transform the team to breathe new life into the title race.
Brown - who picked up 14 major honours during his time at Rangers said: “It starts to get interesting now. Who can handle it? The pressure of being at the top of the league. We’ve got a chance. The manager will just want to win the game on Wednesday. Whether we score enough goals to go top, he’ll want to win the game. You don’t even think about a score. It’s just preparing and whatever happens, happens.
“This league will go right to the last game of the season. It will go down to probably the Old Firm games and it might be goal difference. We’ve got momentum which is good. Celtic have had a few wobbles and I’m sure there will be a few wobbles to come but with the way we’re playing I’m confident we can put Celtic under pressure. But we’re playing against a team who won a Treble last season and they’ve been flying. We’re in a good position just now to peg them back which we have.”
