Paul Lambert’s comments should leave Rangers fans positive for the season ahead

Under a raft of new faces and the introduction of Steven Gerrard, Rangers are beginning a new era in which the fans will hope that they can halt Celtic’s dominance.

Rangers’ arch-rivals are coming off a season where they became the first team to win the historic double treble. This season, however, Rodgers’ side are struggling and despite Rangers losing the Old Firm game, Gerrard’s men currently sit second in the table, five points behind Hearts.

Following Pedro Caixinha’s unsuccessful tenure at the club, Gerrard has come in and has seemingly started to turn Rangers into a side that can compete at the top.

This week, former Celtic man, Paul Lambert has insisted that Gerrard has already improved the side but that Celtic still remain the team to beat in Scotland.

The Breakdown

While Lambert still puts Celtic as the side to beat in the league, to have a former player of your greatest rival praising the team so early in the season, is only good news for the Gers.

Under Gerrard, Rangers already look like a much better team and the likes of Kyle Lafferty, James Tavernier and Joe Worrall have been superb this season. Moreover, with Jordan Rossiter returning and the emergence of Lassana Coulibaly, it looks as though Gerrard has put together a squad with enough talent to seriously challenge for the league.

Moreover, with Celtic losing Moussa Dembele and with Dedryck Boyata’s future uncertain, this Celtic squad could be there for the taking.

Thoughts Rangers fans?
