Glasgow Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has not played down his side’s title ambitions on the club’s official website.

Rangers beat Celtic in their last match before the winter break, to move level on points with their Glasgow rivals at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.

And rather than play down his side’s desire to finish on top of the pile, Gerrard insists that Rangers know they are in with a challenge of topping Celtic.

 

“Look, it’s all to play for,” he said. “The important thing for us is to focus on the next three points but I am not going to sit here and lie. We have got targets in-house that we all want to go and achieve and that’s the way it should be at a big club.”

Gerrard has admitted that he just wants competitive football to start up again, with Rangers having travelled to the Canary Islands for training.

Rangers will be hoping the time off has not halted the momentum they have picked up from beating Celtic in the Old-Firm derby.

The Ibrox side are next in action on Friday evening, when they take on Cowdenbeath in the cup, in a game which they are heavy favourites to win.

Rangers’ next league game comes on 23rd January, when they take on Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.
