After the turgid Scottish Premiership draw with St. Johnstone at Ibrox, there was a near collective sigh rise out of the stadium’s roof
Here we were, with visions of 55 (or at least a run at it) being let down by our own fist biting incompetence. We were awful.
And then we bite back and absolutely dismantle Kilmarnock 5-0. It was a superb, bipolar performance. And it’s performances like that which suggest it might be a little early to write Rangers off – just yet.
But the ball is largely out of Rangers’ court. It would take a monumental stumble by a Celtic side who’ve yet to concede domestically this year. Albeit they’ve not properly been challenged yet.
Alongside that, we need to find something we’ve not had all season. Consistency.
Rangers have struggled for consistent results in the Scottish Premiership
We’ve barely been able to rub three wins together since the season started. We won four Scottish Premiership games on the bounce back in November going into the first weekend of December.
We won three in a row after dropping points against Kilmarnock in January.
What we need now is to put together a run in the Scottish Premiership which strikes a bit of fear into Celtic. Something which has them worried. Powerful, emphatic, no-nonsense performances. The resultant pressure could have Celtic stumbling.
Finished? We could only just be getting started.
And with the potential Player of the Year leading the line, anything is possible.
