Rangers are still talking a big game in their pursuit of silverware.

Rangers will end the season without a trophy, and may have to sit and watch bitter Old Firm rivals Celtic claim a domestic treble for the third season in a row.

It’s tough viewing for Rangers fans at the moment, but at least it feels like they’ve made some progress under Steven Gerrard this season.

Gerrard took Rangers into the Europa League group stage whilst picking up a win over Celtic in December, but more will be needed next season and beyond.

Earlier this week, chairman Dave King again made bold claims, suggesting Rangers weren’t far away from becoming a dominant force in Scotland – conveniently just as season tickets renewals are on sale.

Now, another Rangers man has come out with big comments, with midfielder Scott Arfield the latest to talk about the club’s progress and hopes of taking down Celtic.

Arfield feels that winning a trophy would have been a nice bonus this season, but the club are on course to end up seeing off Celtic at the summit of Scottish football.

Pundit Chris Sutton has now taken to Twitter to react, laughing that Rangers have been doing a lot of talking in recent years, inferring that they need to perform on the pitch as well as talking a good game – something that has been hit and miss.
