Rangers legend outlines number of slip-ups Gers can afford

Rangers can afford a couple of slip-ups between now and the end of the season, says Gers legend Derek Johnstone.

Derek Johnstone has suggested in The Glasgow Evening Times that Rangers can afford a couple of slip-ups between now and the end of the season.

The Rangers legend made the comments before the Gers’ Scottish Championship game against St. Mirren at Ibrox in Glasgow on Saturday afternoon when the gap between them and second-placed Hibernian was eight points.

Johnstone, who played for Rangers in the 1970s and 1980s and is a club legend, believes that Mark Warburton’s side can win the Scottish Championship title this season even with a couple of slip-ups.

“We have a great chance of winning the league now and can even afford a couple of slip-ups between now and the end of the season,” the former Scotland international wrote in The Glasgow Evening Times.

Rangers won 1-0 against St Mirren and are now 11 points clear of second-placed Hibernian, with both teams having played 26 matches.

The Glasgow giants certainly appear to be in the driving seat, and it is only a matter of time before they wrap up the league title and clinch automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

The Gers will return to action on Tuesday evening when they take on Raith Rovers at Ibrox in the Scottish Championship.
