Hibs star Marc McNulty thinks Rangers’ recent struggles mean tonight’s clash between the side at Ibrox could make it the “worst time” to face Steven Gerrard’s side as they look to “make things right”
McNulty and Hibs travel to Ibrox tonight with the Gers having dropped five points in three games to put a massive dent in their title ambitions.
The striker is confident that if Hibs focus on their own task they “could get something” against Rangers – although the on-loan ace knows they will be up against it.
“With Rangers slipping up a couple of times recently, you can look at it two ways,” McNulty told the Edinburgh Evening News.
“It might be the worst time to play them as they will want to come out and make things right.
“But we just need to concentrate on ourselves and if we do everything we are meant to and we execute the gameplan well, I’m sure we could get something.
“You aren’t going to keep Rangers quiet the whole game. We just need to make sure we defend well and are positive. We have been scoring goals and creating chances, so there is no reason why we can’t do that at Ibrox.”
McNulty rejoined the Hibees on deadline day, allowing Flo Kamberi to leave Easter Road and join Rangers on loan until the end of the season.
Greg Docherty also arrived at Hibs on deadline day but, like Kamberi, will have to sit out tonight’s game due to SPFL rules on loan players facing their parent clubs.
After dropping points recently, the Light Blues can’t afford any more mistakes in the title race and the Gers will need to be at their best tonight against Jack Ross’ side.
