Former Scottish footballer Archie Knox has said that it would be a phenomenal achievement for Rangers to win the Scottish Premiership this season. The Gers are looking good this season under the tutelage of former Liverpool star Steven Gerrard and are currently standing on the second position in the league table with reigning champions Celtic on the top of the ladder. They also dished out a brilliant performance against their arch-rivals in their last meeting at the Ibrox where they defeated by 1-0.
In a recent interview, when asked about a potential title win for the Gers, Knox said, “I can’t say it would be a miracle but it would be a phenomenal achievement if they were to manage it and they obviously think they can.”
He added, “The signing of Jermain Defoe and Steven Davis brings in a lot of experience which is a big thing and it’s a big challenge for them. They will be seeing Rangers are level on points, albeit having played a game more than Celtic, with two Old Firm games to come. Rangers have had set-backs against teams they should have beaten and we need to see how they can help improve in that aspect. Everyone will be looking at it that way [that it would be biggest since nine-in-a-row]. The fans see that creeping up and there will be all sorts of panic setting in if Celtic win another title.”
Knox concluded, “As far as Rangers are concerned then the sooner they get back to seeing their name as champions that will be their aim. But Steven Gerrard has come a helluva long way in a short period of time. Not all the signings have been particularly successful but at least he’s been out and made changes.”
