Having not tasted domestic defeat this season Rangers boss Steven Gerrard must include Ross McCrorie against Celtic

The defensive midfielder is yet to taste defeat when he has been called upon in domestic competition this season.

Rangers will travel to face Celtic on Saturday looking to earn bragging rights for the second successive time.

Steven Gerrard’s men ran out 1-0 winners at Ibrox when they last met in December.

Despite that victory Celtic have pulled away from the Gers and now sit 10 points clear of their rivals at the top of the Premiership.

With Rangers unlikely to win the division now, bragging rights this weekend are pretty much all that is left to play for this season.

Gerrard will hope to get his team selection spot on and give Celtic another tough time as his team did the last time the two sides met.

 

He might not be aware of it but Ross McCrorie might be a good player to pick this week, purely based on his astonishing record.

The 21-year-old could get the nod to play this weekend anyway, but it is worthy of note that Rangers don’t lose too often when the defensive midfielder plays.

In fact, Gerrard’s team haven’t lost at all domestically when McCrorie has featured in a game.

The only time the Scot has been on a losing team this season came when Rapid Vienna defeated the Gers 1-0 to knock them out of the Europa League.

Rangers might need all the help they can get this weekend and the robust nature of McCrorie could make him the perfect derby-day inclusion in Gerrard’s starting eleven.
