David Robertson has urged every Rangers fan to get behind the team.

Rangers legend David Robertson has offered some advice to the club’s fans via the Daily Mail.

Robertson has urged the supporters to focus completely on the game against Celtic this weekend and nothing on going else connected to the club.

“It's going to be a strange atmosphere there and, hopefully, the Rangers supporters forget about the turmoil that's going on and really get behind the team,” said Robertson.

“They are the underdogs, probably for the first time in a long time in any game, but it's a good chance for the team and the players to try to prove people wrong.”

There is still uncertainty at Rangers although the club have dragged themselves up through the Football League and into a decent position from a playing sense.

It’s been a while since they could get fired up about an Old Firm game and their support can provide the benefit of easing the nerves in the Rangers dressing room.

The biggest challenge for the fans this weekend is what will happen if Celtic go ahead and Rangers look under severe pressure.

It’s important here aren’t inner conflicts between Rangers fans during the game, focused on what might happen away from the pitch and who is to blame for the problems over the last three years.

Even if the side goes 1-0 down, Robertson is spot on to request strong support because it’s also a sign that Rangers won’t be intimidated.

Strength in the face of adversity is a rare value and it may just make the difference this weekend.
