Rangers have struggled to ensure consistency in the Scottish Premiership this season having lost to teams that they really should have beaten.
The Bluenoses have been rather impressive in Europe under Steven Gerrard and are still in with a shout of causing an upset in the Scottish Premiership, despite their inconsistencies at times.
Indeed, it’s vital that Rangers can ensure consistency in what could prove to be a season-defining month, with the opportunity to challenge for the title and qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League.
Although, with plenty of games still yet to come and a number of negative factors possibly coming into play, the Glasgow club could soon find themselves slipping away.
Therefore, here’s TWO things that could force Rangers to take a step backwards…
MORELOS SUFFERS DIP IN FORM
Alfredo Morelos has returned to his prolific ways in recent times, with four goals and three assists in his last four Scottish Premiership appearances.
Although, the South American did go missing earlier on in the season and he could easily struggle to find the back of the net again if things go against him. Indeed, the forward is Rangers’ biggest chance of enjoying silverware and success this season, so witnessing a dip in form could harm their chances massively.
KNOCKED OUT OF TITLE RACE
Rangers are still in with a chance of challenging for the Scottish Premiership title at this moment in time as they’re currently five points behind Hearts with a game in hand and four points behind Celtic.
Sadly, it’s slip-ups against the likes of Kilmarnock and Livingstone that could really halt Gerrard’s progress this season, as these are the sort of games they should be coming out on top in.
Therefore, a disappointing November could force them to take a passenger seat in the race for the title, with Celtic looking dominant at this moment in time.
