Former Rangers star Charlie Adam has a warning for Celtic

The Stoke City midfielder believes Rangers will challenge for the title next season.

Former Rangers player Charlie Adam has been discussing his former club today (07/04/2016) on Sky Sports News HQ.

The Stoke City midfielder is clearly made up about his former side making it back to the Scottish top-flight but does not think they will stop there.

He believes they will challenge for the Scottish Premiership title:

"Of course they are able to challenge for the title.

"They had 49,000 fans there against Dumbarton on a Wednesday night, and they've had that support since they were in the Third Division week in, week out.

"The fans have made a massive impact.”

He went on to praise the new faces that Rangers boss Mark Warburton has brought in to Ibrox, and suggested they are potentially good enough to ensure Rangers of a successful term in the top flight next term:

“The players and owners have come in and stabilised the club and they look like they are building for the future.

"I think the signings that Mark has made showed the intent that they were going to try and get promoted, but the players are good enough to keep them in the Premiership.”

Adam, who spent six years as a Rangers player in the early part of his career, is clearly happy to see that his former club are back where many will feel they belong.

It has been a long road back after their enforced relegation from the top-flight of Scottish football and next season they will no doubt be ready to push Celtic all the way.

Adam believes that The Bhoys will need to be wary:

"They'll go there next season and want to try and win it - they will spend again as well and improve the squad, and Celtic will have to be wary of that."

Rangers fans will be hoping that Adam’s prediction for his former club to be there or thereabouts next term comes true.
