Rangers Just Have The Winning Habit

Former Scotland player Alan Rough has insisted that Rangers are in the habit of winning and are just taking one game at a time as they close in on the Scottish Premiership title.

Rangers are just a handful of points away from winning their first league title in over a decade and ending Celtic’s dream of winning ten-in-a-row.

The Gers have looked comfortable and have been chalking off wins with ease as they close in on the title and are now a couple of wins away from sealing the deal.

Rangers have not allowed the pressure of expectations to affect their performances thus far and Rough insisted that the confidence with which the Gers have played has made all the difference.

He stressed that Rangers believe that they can win even if they are struggling and they are now in the habit of winning games, whatever the scoreline.

Asked about Rangers’ march to the title, Rough said on PLZ Soccer: “It’s the old thing in football when you have got confidence when you are winning every week, you just get into ways.

“Even when you go into a game, and you are struggling, you know at the end of the day you have got players who can turn it very quickly.

“It’s just confidence and it’s the same when you are bottom of the league and you are not winning games and that sort of beds in as well and becomes a habit.

“The winning habit is what Rangers have got just now and the players are going into games, taking each game as it comes and generally they are winning.

“Whether it’s 1-0 or 2-0, they have been convincing.”

Rangers are in action this evening when they take on Livingston in the Scottish Premiership.

On Our Day We Can Be Match For Anyone – Jon Guthrie Issues Warning To Rangers

Livingston defender Jon Guthrie believes that his side can approach Wednesday night’s game against Rangers with confidence due to their previous performances against the Gers.

After the disappointment of losing in the Scottish League Cup final on Sunday, David Martindale’s side will now look to bounce back when they take on the league leaders on Wednesday.

Livingston will start as firm underdogs against a side that have yet to suffer defeat in the Scottish Premiership this season, but Guthrie is taking heart from how his team have performed against the Gers.

“Definitely at home since we have come back in to the Premiership we have got a good record at home against them”, Guthrie said at a press conference.

“Obviously we know that Rangers are the best team this season by some distance.

“We have already played them here once, we got a draw against them earlier on this season. So we can take a lot of confidence from that.”

The need though will be for the home side to be on top of their game for the entire course of the match to get something, Guthrie feels.

“On our day, we know we’re more than a match for anyone.

“We know we’ve got to be at the top of our game but we’re confident we can pick something up.”

Livingston currently sit in fifth spot in the Scottish Premiership standings, with 40 points from 29 games and last beat Rangers on home turf in 2018, when they edged out the Gers 1-0.

Slavia Prague Tie Is Mouth-Watering – Steven Gerrard Relishing Rangers’ Next Test

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has expressed his excitement at the Gers drawing Slavia Prague in the Europa League, labelling it a mouth-watering tie.

Scottish Premiership runaway leaders Rangers will lock horns with Czech Republic giants Slavia Prague in the round of 16 of the Europa League.

The Gers go into the tie on the back of an aggregate 9-5 victory over Belgian club Royal Antwerp, while the Czech outfit booked their place in the round of 16 by beating Leicester City.

Excited by the prospect of facing Slavia Prague in the Europa League, Rangers manager Gerrard has labelled the draw a mouth-watering tie.

The Englishman explained that the Red and Whites will be high on confidence having beaten Leicester, but insisted that Rangers will be ready for the tie, with the prospect of making their way into the Europa League quarter-finals exciting them.

In terms of the draw, I think it is an exciting draw for both teams“, Gerrard told a press conference.

I think both teams are on a really exciting journey from a personal point of view, performed ever so well against some high-level teams along the way.

I think, obviously, Slavia knocking Leicester out is a big coup for them because Leicester are going so well themselves.

So, they are going to come into the game full of confidence and rightly so, but we will be ready, we will be prepared.

We have got some really important league games prior to that that we need to focus on, but we are really looking forward to those two games.

I think they are mouth-watering and may the best team win and get to the last eight because that opportunity really excites us.

The first leg of the Europa League round of 16 tie between Rangers and Slavia Prague will take place on 11th March, while the second leg is scheduled for 18th March.

I’ve Have Loved To Have Been In Leeds United Clash – Alex Rae On Battle Of Britain

Former Rangers star Alex Rae has revealed that the game he would have loved to have been involved in for the the Gers was their 1992/93 Champions League second-round tie against Leeds United.

In a notable season in Rangers’ history, the Scottish giants came close to reaching the newly-branded Champions League final, but fell just short, losing to eventual champions Marseille.

The Gers faced English giants Leeds United in the second round of the tournament, coming out 4-2 winners over the course of the two-legged tie.

Rae, who started his career in the youth ranks at Rangers and later returned to the club, insists that he would have loved to have been part of that match, given the brilliant atmosphere both the crowd and players were witnesses to at Ibrox in the first leg and Elland Road in the second.

“The game I’d love to have played in would have been the Battle of Britain v Leeds”, Rae said in a Q&A session with RFPBC.

“The atmosphere at Ibrox was unbelievable and to go down to Leeds and win there too was tremendous.”

Rae also took time to pick winning the league with Sunderland and Rangers as the standout moments of his career.

“Winning the leagues with Sunderland and Rangers are the standouts.

“As a player, you want to win things.”

Rangers look set to return to the Champions League next season as they sit top of the Scottish Premiership and on course to win the title.
