Charlie Adam discusses Rangers’ promotion chances; comments on Celtic rivalry

Rangers want to get back to the Premiership and start competing with Celtic.

Rangers are sitting atop the Scottish Championship table at the moment, and Charlie Adam has told talkSPORT that it will be a tough challenge for the Gers to get back to the top flight, although it would be great to see them competing with Celtic again.

Adam said: “They dictate everything that goes on [in Sottish football], so it would be great to see Rangers back playing against Celtic. There’s a few tough games coming up for Rangers, and they have to try and stay at the top of the league and get a few points ahead [of Hibs]. It will be difficult for them to get out the league.”

Rangers are currently sitting in in first place of the Championship, three points ahead of closest rivals Hibs, ahead of the tie away at Falkirk this weekend. A loss to Falkirk would also allow them to close in on top spot, and come within six points of the Gers.

Despite starting the season in excellent form, Rangers have started to falter in recent weeks. They lost their first league game of the season to Hibs, and have since drawn two of four following fixtures.

A victory over Falkirk would prove they can still cut it against the best teams in the division, and would likely send them into the New Year in the top spot.

Adam believes it will be a hard task for the Gers to win promotion, but the former Ibrox star wants to see Rangers back in the top flight to compete with Celtic.

He is well aware that the Old Firm duo dictate the success of Scottish football, and it is not a coincidence that football north of the border has suffered since Rangers were liquidated.

Seeing Rangers back in the top flight would be best for not just the Gers, but for Celtic and all the top flight as well.
