Aberdeen's Shay Logan comments on Rangers’ title chances next season

Rangers will look to challenge for the title next season.

Aberdeen defender Shay Logan says Rangers will be in for a shock next season as they find the Scottish Premiership much tougher than the Championship, the Daily Record report.

The Gers won the Scottish Championship with four games spare and will now set their sights on challenging rivals Celtic and Aberdeen for the Scottish Premiership title next season.

There has been a wave of optimism at Ibrox under current boss Mark Warburton, and the expectation levels are growing as supporters see their proud club on the rise once more.

However, Aberdeen’s Logan feels Rangers will be in for a shock next season, and suggests the Glasgow club will find it tough to usurp both the Dons and Celtic at the top of the table.

“It’s going to be a lot harder for Rangers next season but Mark knows that and will be looking to bring in the players to cope,” Logan told the Daily Record.

“They will be challenging but they will find it tough as we will be right up there again. No disrespect to the Championship but there are teams in that division nowhere near the standard of the Premiership.”

“Rangers will get a shock at the quality they come across, not just from ourselves, but also Hearts and other clubs such as Ross County, Dundee and Motherwell. It is all set for an exciting league.”

Rangers have been impressive on the march to the Championship title this season, and they could top off a fabulous campaign with a Scottish Cup title as they are set play Hibernian in the final.

But caution would be wise ahead of next season, as pushing the likes of Aberdeen and Celtic too soon could see the club make the same financial mistakes as before.

Aberdeen have improved over the years and they will be confident of challenging again next season.
