Glasgow Rangers manager Steven Gerrard secured his first away SPFL match when they luckily beat Hamilton Academicals 4-1 a few weeks ago.

Since then the league is still proving to be very competitive this season with Kilmarnock, Celtic, Hearts, Hibernian, Livingston and an ever-improving Aberdeen side starting to perform better recently.

Despite the recent upsurge in the Dons performances, they are still placed in 8th place due to the other seven teams gaining more league points than them. 15 points from 10 games is not good enough for Derek McInnes.

He is an excellent manager who has managed to get his Pittodrie side into the BetFred cup final against Celtic at Hampden Park in early December, but they do have to start climbing the league soon, to keep their fervent fans happy!

A deflected shot from striker Alfredo Morelos opened the scoring against Kilmarnock at Ibrox in only nine minutes, but a superb shot flew past Wes Fotheringham for the Rugby Park side to earn a 1-1, deserved share of the points in their quest to finish in the top six again this year.

The present league positions don’t lie, leaving Gerrard with lots to improve on.

Hearts are still top of the pile on 22 points after 11 games played. Celtic are in 2nd place on 22, with a game in hand, and Kilmarnock are in third place on 21. Rangers have moved up to 4th equal place on 18 along with Hibernian and Livingston because of a better goal difference.

There is no doubt that Hearts are worthy of their leading position in the league, as they are still playing tenacious but attractive football and are proving to be really difficult to beat, especially at Tynecastle Park. Experienced manager Craig Levein is certainly earning his money this year.

Steve Clarke is doing a magnificent job for re-born Kilmarnock who are still three points ahead of Rangers with that surprise result at Ibrox on Wednesday night. They packed their defence and midfield to frustrate the, “Teddy Bears” and their enthusiastic fans.

For the first time in many years, we finally have a league title worth talking about..
