Derek Johnstone has a warning for Rangers regarding Scottish Championship title race

Rangers Gates

Rangers and Hibernian are the two frontrunners for the Scottish Championship title this season.

Derek Johnstone has suggested in The Glasgow Evening Times that it is far from a given that Rangers will win the Scottish Championship title this season.

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 36 points from 13 matches.

Hibernian are the Gers’ nearest challengers and currently find themselves second in the standings with 31 points from 13 games.

Former Rangers star Johnstone believes that the Scottish Championship title race is far from over.

“People who thought Rangers would win the Championship by Christmas are just kidding themselves on, this will go to the death,” the former Scotland international wrote in The Glasgow Evening Times.

“If you look at Hibs’ record before the game with Mark Warburton’s side, it was utterly incredible.

“They are on a terrific run and they have proven they have a terrific side when everyone is fit. There is a long way to go yet.”

Rangers have the strongest team in the Scottish Championship, and they should be considered favourites to win the league title.

However, the five-point gap suggests that Hibernian’s challenge should not be undermined.

Hibs also have a good side, and the players will be determined to prove everyone wrong by taking the title race down to the wire.
