Former Motherwell star Stephen Craigan thinks that the Scottish Premiership may now have a title race on between Celtic and Rangers, while he feels there is a connection between Graeme Murty’s men and the Gers faithful.
The Gers secured a big win at home against Hearts on Saturday beating Craig Levein’s side 2-0 to move to within six points of league leaders Celtic.
The Premiership holders, who play today against third placed Aberdeen, have faced little genuine competition for the title in recent years and had appeared out of the title race this season.
However, Craigan thinks there may now be a title race on cards, with Rangers much more stronger under Murty and connecting with the fans.
Craigan wrote on Twitter:
“Working today at Ibrox for BT Sport Score and Rangers under Murty much improved.
“Huge 3 points in the grand scheme of things maybe, just maybe a title race the league desperately needs.
“There seemed a connection between Rangers fans and players.
“Aberdeen and Celtic over to you.”
Rangers will be hoping the clash between Celtic and Aberdeen today can cancel each other out and the duo should drop points, with Rangers then winning again on Tuesday night at St Johnstone.
Murty’s men are due to host Celtic at Ibrox on 11th March, an opportunity to apply further pressure.
