Rangers just haven’t been able to ensure consistency at all times in the current campaign as they’ve thrown away a number of valuable points.
The Bluenoses would have had their sights set on securing the Scottish Premiership title prior to the start of the current campaign, but they just haven’t been able to hit the front just yet.
Indeed, it’s vital that Rangers can find some consistency in what could prove to be a season-defining month, with the opportunity to push for a European place under Steven Gerrard.
Although, with plenty of games still yet to come and a number of negative factors possibly coming into play, the Scottish club could find themselves slipping down the table.
Therefore, here’s TWO things that could force Rangers to take a step backwards…
ALFREDO MORELOS ENCOUNTERS ROUGH PATCH
Alfredo Morelos has been the standout performers for Rangers in the current campaign as he continues to find the back of the net with ease, scoring a number of goals already.
However, the South American recently missed out on an international call-up after enjoying one of his best starts to a campaign, so it’s safe to say he won’t be filled with a huge amount of confidence.
Therefore, the forward could encounter a bit of a dry patch in front of goal, which would be extremely bad news for the Bluenoses as his contributions have been priceless.
LOSE GROUND IN RACE FOR EUROPE
Rangers would have been looking to challenge bitter rivals Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title prior to the start of the current campaign, but things haven’t gone to plan as Hearts are currently in pole position.
Indeed, it now looks as if the Bluenoses will have to settle for a European place at best this season, but not even this is guaranteed after their nervy performances over the past few weeks.
So, it would be an absolute disaster if Rangers were to lose ground in the race for a place in Europe as they could find themselves playing for nothing.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
