Glasgow Rangers fans have Neil Lennon’s Hibernian to thank for going back to the top of the SPFL for the second time in two weeks.
With Hibs surprise 2-0 win over Celtic at Easter Road earlier in the day, Steven Gerrard told his players not to waste this wonderful opportunity presented to them once again.
Thankfully, Daniel Candeias gave Rangers the lead with only three minutes of the game gone to ease the pressure off the players and the fans.
Unfortunately, it was the only goal of the 1-0 win, but as I often say. “If you don’t lose a goal against, you only have to score once to earn all three points”
Gerrard got his get out of jail card from Hibernian yesterday.
It is Rangers turn to go to Easter Road this Wednesday to try and earn another three points to keep them on top as Celtic play Motherwell at home the same night.
Despite a Rangers domineering performance with 62% of the play, they could only win 1-0 at Ibrox with Alfredo Morelos missing due to another suspension.
Every time Kyle Lafferty leads the line on his own the Light Blues tend to struggle to score a lot of goals.
With Celtic losing earlier in the day to Hibs, and Kilmarnock winning 3-1 against bottom team Dundee at home, the three points were enough for Rangers to move ahead of both sides.
Aberdeen have slowly moved up to fourth in the league after a hard fought 2-1 win against an unlucky St Mirren side who ran them close throughout.
Only four points are currently separating the top four teams, which is a very healthy state for the competition for this season.
Starting line up: McGregor: Tavernier, Goldson, McAuley, Barisic: Jack, McCrorie, Arfield: Candeias, Lafferty, Grezda.
Subs: Foderingham, Worrall, Halliday, Flanagan, Coulibaly, Middleton and young reserve striker Andy Dallas
