Former Rangers midfielder Barry Ferguson has warned supporters not to get too overconfident over the problems that their Old Firm rivals Celtic are currently facing.
The Hoops crashed out of the Champions League qualifying rounds last week, with many Gers fans seeing an opportunity for Steven Gerrard’s side to take advantage of the situation in the league.
Ferguson has implored supporters to stay focused on Rangers’ results and make sure they head into the Old Firm derby at the beginning of next month on the back of a string of good results:
“This is where you have got to be wary. It’s still far too early for me. I know they [Celtic] are not playing at the levels people expect and I still think they are two or three short of what Neil Lennon wants them to be.”
“But my only concern is the Rangers players and the Rangers fans being over-confident. Things are going well, teams playing decent, but you have to keep your feet on the ground. It’s simple as that. It’s just going to come around the corner, the Old firm, and anything can happen in them games.”
Before the Old Firm clash at Ibrox, Rangers have three more matches. The two legs against Legia Warsaw in the Europa League playoff round with a trip to face St Mirren in between.
Winning at the weekend and making it through to the group stages of the Europa League should be the team’s priority so they can go into the derby full of confidence.
