Do Rangers now need to get something against Celtic at Parkhead?

As the dust settles on the 2-2 draw with Aberdeen, and Celtic’s late winner at Parkhead, a little bit of perspective should return to the minds of the Rangers support.

After all, Celtic’s two-point lead can be overturned in 90 minutes of football.

But with our rivals grinding out results across the city and looking like a hard team to beat, will that come down to us at Parkhead at the end of December?

At the risk of looking too far ahead, everybody knows that Rangers’ league campaign is what every fan truly wants to go right this season.

We may have Celtic in the Betfred Cup Final this weekend and Young Boys in the Europa League next week to focus on first, but we also have plenty of tough Scottish Premiership fixtures coming up.

We go away to Motherwell and Hibs, followed by a home game against Kilmarnock, before travelling to Celtic Park, all in December.

Our rivals too have got to face the likes of Hibs, Hearts and Aberdeen before the year ends.

After the slip up at Pittodrie, there’s an argument that we simply must get something at Celtic Park come December.

Because with Celtic two points clear, playing a game more and having already beat us at Ibrox, the idea that they could be eight points clear by Hogmany is a daunting one.
