Rangers dominate this week’s WhoScored Team of the Week, despite much of the Scottish press’ coverage fawning over Old Firm rivals Celtic.
Both sides ran out comfortable 3-0 winners over the weekend with the Gers dispatching Dundee at Ibrox and Celtic taking three points from Dundee United at Tannadice.
But whilst both teams performed strongly in the Scottish Premiership this weekend, it’s the Parkhead side who appear to be in focus around Scotland.
Resurgent under new manager Ange Postecoglou, Celtic have done well to respond to Rangers twice putting the pressure on them with earlier victories this week.
But the Ibrox side have also quietly made it four victories our of four under new manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst and are enjoying a four-point lead in the Scottish Premiership.
Both teams are performing strongly at the moment and the Champions will probably enjoy being out of the limelight.

In contrast, Celtic have only two players in the side with Dundee, Hearts, and Aberdeen all featuring.
Tellingly, it’s Dundee keeper Adam Legzdins who has been included, the goalie preventing the match turning into a cricket score at Ibrox.
James Tavernier, Connor Goldson and Borna Barisic join Hearts star John Souttar – who has been heavily linked to Rangers – in defence.
Form star Joe Aribo joins Celtic pair Calum McGregor and David Turnbull in midfield alongside Aberdeen winger Marley Watkins.
Alfredo Morelos joins Aberdeen striker Christian Ramirez up top after returning to Scottish Premiership scoring form in the 3-0 win.
Next up for Rangers in the Scottish Premiership is a tough trip to Hearts a Tynecastle with that match poised to be a cracker.
But before then Rangers will play Lyon in a Europa League dead rubber which is already courting controversy as French authorities ban Gers fans from visiting the Groupama Stadium.
