Can Rangers break Celtic’s stranglehold on the Scottish game?

Rangers have been constantly living in Celtic's shadow since their return to the Premiership, however could this be about to change?

2018/19 was an amazing season for Celtic as they once again won a domestic treble, their third in succession. While this is certainly a huge achievement, it is more a reflection of the dismal state of the Scottish game and the fact that one side can utterly dominate the domestic scene is hugely depressing.

Rangers finished nine points behind Celtic in the final Scottish Premiership table although there have been a few signs that the dominance of the Hoops may not be quite so emphatic next season. Steven Gerrard’s men enjoyed a rare 2-0 victory over Celtic in their penultimate match of the campaign and this this in itself is no clear indicator that things are about to change, it will give Rangers belief that they are at least narrowing the gap between themselves and the Hoops.

Indeed this was Rangers’ second Premiership victory over their Old Firm rivals in 2018/19 with the Light Blues winning 1-0 in the previous game at Ibrox Stadium. Whether they can continue in a similar fashion into the new campaign remains to be seen however and Betway Bookmakers have been busy preparing odds on Rangers adding to their trophy cabinet in 2019/20.
