Nightmare March: Rangers

Nightmare March: Rangers

Rangers will have their sights set on advancing in the Scottish Cup later on today, but they’ll have to overcome the challenge of Aberdeen at Pittodrie if they are to do so. 

The Gers have looked dominant in recent times in the Scottish Premiership as they continue to apply pressure in the race for the title, but they’ll need to go up another couple of gears with Celtic also looking impressive.

It’s safe to say that March could turn out to be a nightmare month for the Glasgow club with a number of difficult fixtures on the horizon, including games against Aberdeen, Hibernian, Kilmarnock and the Old Firm clash.

So, with the pressure firmly on the Light Blues to chase down the Hoops in first position, here is what Rangers’ nightmare March would look like…

STEVEN GERRARD CRUMBLES UNDER PRESSURE

Steven Gerrard has completely transformed Rangers since taking over back in the summer months, but there’re still a number of underlying issues that need to be sorted in order to reach the next level.

Indeed, the Light Blues have dropped points at crucial times in the Scottish Premiership, which just goes to show that Gerrard has found it difficult to deal with the pressure in games. And, with three impressive sides coming up in the league this month, it’s safe to say that things could go horribly wrong if Gerrard fails to keep his cool.

ALFREDO MORELOS DISAPPOINTS

Alfredo Morelos is arguably one of the best players in Scotland having produced an incredible 24 goals and eight assists domestically this season.

It’s safe to say that Rangers’ slim title hopes will depend on how the South American performs from here on in until the end of the current campaign. So, the Light Blues could find themselves in a nightmare situation if he starts to disappoint this month, as his goals and assists have been invaluable up until this point.
