Andy Halliday has a big warning for Rangers over title push

Rangers Gates

The Gers winger insists that Hibernian will close the gap on the Scottish Championship leaders and could win every single one their remaining 10 matches.

Rangers winger Andy Halliday has warned his teammates and Rangers fans not to celebrate a Scottish Championship title yet, telling reporters that he believes Hibernian have it in them to win 10 matches in a row and close the gap, as quoted by the Belfast Telegraph.

Mark Warburton's side opened up an 11-point lead at the top of the second tier thanks to another slip up from Hibs at the weekend, leaving the 54-time SPL champions as runaway favourites for promotion.

The Glasgow club are now touted by some bookmakers as 1/16 favourites to win the title, but Halliday has called for focus from the players and fans ahead of the run-in.

He told reporters, quoted by the Belfast Telegraph: "I think Hibs are a good enough team to win every game from now until the end of the season so it is up to us to stop that. We have a game against them at Easter Road in April which could be important.

"The distance has been there before and they managed to claw that back. We have 10 games to go and we have the ability to win all 10 - if we do that then we will have won the league. Our mindset hasn't changed since the first game; we go into games and it's all about ourselves and we try not to worry about what is happening elsewhere.

"We're in a strong position but nothing is concrete yet and we still need to go into every game with the same mentality. It has been a tight title race all the way through and I'm sure it will go down to the wire. We are not going to get carried away."

As alluded to by the 25-year-old, Rangers' nearest title rivals have already shown that they can make up a deficit, having wiped an eight-point lead held by the Old Firm side earlier in the season.

Both Rangers and Hibs are in action on Tuesday night, with the Gers hosting Raith Rovers at Ibrox and the Edinburgh side travelling to Queen of the South.
