Kris Boyd has ripped into Rangers ahead of the Old Firm clash against Celtic on Sunday and claimed it feels like they haven’t left the field since December.
Steven Gerrard’s side managed to beat Celtic 1-0 at Ibrox at the end of 2018 before an international break, but they are currently 10 points behind the league leaders in the table.
The Gers have to travel to Parkhead for a league encounter this weekend and could do with the lift of a win.
They have played 14 games in all competitions since beating Celtic, but have won just seven of them and are without a victory in their last four.
Boyd believes that the result is irrelevant at the weekend from a Rangers perspective, but instead it’s about restoring some pride and belief.
“Rangers left the field at Ibrox on December 29 having beaten Celtic in the last Old Firm derby — you could argue they haven’t been seen since,” Boyd told the Scottish Sun.
“And that’s why the outcome at Parkhead is largely irrelevant. Even if Rangers win, Celtic will still go on to clinch the title.
“Rangers need to deliver a performance for their fans and there’s no doubt that [Alfredo] Morelos will be central to that.”
Rangers’ most optimistic fan should know that the title is beyond them even if they do manage to win away at Celtic.
But it’s true that Gerrard is desperately in need of a reaction from his players after a fairly bleak 2019 so far.
His team are once again going through a season without any silverware barring the most ridiculous of comebacks in the league and the cup exits were disappointing.
There have been a lot fresh faces added at Ibrox over the last year and they need to step up against Celtic.
