Rangers will be at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the end of 2015, says Derek Johnstone.

Derek Johnstone has told The Glasgow Evening Times that Rangers will finish at the top of the Scottish Championship at the end of 2015.

“I think it will be Rangers,” said the former Rangers star when asked who he thinks would end 2015 top of the Championship table. “We are three points ahead of Hibs and have the benefit of a good goal difference.

“The game that people are looking forward to is, of course, on December 28, against Hibs, but every game is a huge one for Rangers. Mark won’t let the focus drift to that fixture at Ibrox. It is all about the next game.

“After playing Raith today, we face Morton at home and Falkirk away before the Hibs game. It is a big run, but I reckon Rangers will still be top of the league come the end of it.”

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 40 points from 15 matches.

The Gers are three points clear of Hibernian, who are second in the standings and are their main rivals for the league title.

Mark Warburton’s side have played well this season and are the favourites to win the league title.

However, Hibernian are hot on their heels, and the Glasgow outfit cannot become complacent.

Rangers will take on Raith Rovers away from home in the Scottish Championship today.

The Gers will then face Greenock Morton (home) and Falkirk (away) before confronting Hibernian at Ibrox on December 28.

Meanwhile, Hibs will face Morton away from home today before taking on Falkirk and Queen of the South.
