Former Celtic attacking midfielder Kris Commons has been quoted as saying by The Scottish Sun that Rangers will finish second in the Scottish Premiership this season.

Celtic are going strong in the Scottish Premiership at the moment and should be able to win the league title once again.

In fact, one should not be surprised if Brendan Rodgers’s side clinch the league title without losing a single match just like they did in 2016-17.

Rangers finished third in the Scottish Premiership last season and will be aiming to end up at least second this term.

Pedro Caixinha’s side, though, will face stiff competition for the runners-up spot from a number of clubs.

Aberdeen, Hibernian, St. Johnstone and Heart of Midlothian all all be targeting the second spot.

Former Celtic attacking midfielder Commons, though, believes that Rangers will finish second in the Scottish Premiership this season.

“I’m going to say Rangers,” Commons is quoted as saying by The Scottish Sun when asked who will finish second in the Scottish Premiership this season.

Rangers’ next Scottish Premiership game is against Old Firm rivals Celtic at Ibrox next Saturday.
