Rangers are flying high in the Scottish Championship so far this season, and club legend John Brown has told the Evening Times that he believes the Gers can win the league comfortably, with a potential 20 point gap between them and their closest rivals.
Brown said: “I said after the early games to a few people that I fancied Rangers to win the league comfortably, by 20 plus points. They will win the majority of their games because the style they play is too much for the majority of teams in the Championship. Round about February, they could be winning the league.”
Whilst Rangers have started the season excellently, and are favourites to storm to the league title, Brown has predicted they could be picking up the trophy as early as February, and end the campaign with a gap of over 20 points ahead of their closest rivals.
This is a bold claim, and one which will be remembered for many years if Mark Warburton can pull it off.
Considering their struggles in the Championship last season, many expected them to face a challenge winning promotion this time around, but the start to the campaign Rangers have enjoyed makes it look like they are far too good for the division.
The 4-3-3 system Warburton has devised is blowing away all opposition with ease, and any kind of attempt to prevent the Gers scoring has been demolished by the in form attack on show at Ibrox.
Winning the league certainly looks well within their capabilities this season, but it is the 20 point gap which is the bold claim that Brown makes. However, if the Gers continue to play as they have been so far this season, Brown’s prediction is sure to come true as the campaign draws to a close.
