Jason Holt says Rangers more than a match for Celtic

Rangers FC - Ibrox

Jason Holt says Rangers will prove there isn't a big difference between Scottish Premiership giants Celtic in Sunday's Scottish Cup clash.

Speaking to The Daily Record, Rangers midfielder Jason Holt has insisted that Mark Warburton's side are "more than good enough" to test Celtic in Sunday's Scottish Cup semi-final.

Hampden Park plays host on the weekend as both Glasgow giants contest what will be just the second Old Firm derby since 2012 - the Hoops winning a League Cup semi 14 months ago.

The Gers, however, have arguably improved quite a bit since then, with Warburton's side - already promoted back to Scotland's top flight after running away with the Scottish Championship - vying to move within 90 minutes of winning a treble this season.

They smashed top-flight outfit Dundee FC 4-0 in the quarter-final stage to show they mean business, and although Holt admits facing the Bhoys - on course for a fifth straight Scottish Premiership crown - represents a massive test, he's confident that it is one he and his team-mates can pass.

"They will be a really big test. They have quality players and they are a good side so they will give us a test but we just need to do the things that we are good at and hopefully it comes good on the day," he said to The Daily Record.

"I think we have proved, especially in some of the cup games this season, that we are more than good enough to test Celtic and we look to take that into Sunday. Hopefully it goes well."

It really is a fascinating match-up and might well show just how big the gap is between both sides - if even there is one. Warburton has built himself a very capable squad and opposition manager Ronny Deila will certainly be wary - very wary, in fact.
