Gerrard wants Rangers fans ‘to take the roof off’ Ibrox for Celtic visit

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has urged the Ibrox crowd to create a raucous atmosphere when they face Celtic in the Old Firm derby on Saturday.

Gerrard’s Rangers side face their city rivals and the current league leaders on Saturday lunchtime, knowing a win will take them level with Brendan Rodgers’ side at the division’s summit.

Rangers have allocated their fierce rivals just 750 tickets for the game, reduced from the usual 7000 allocation held for travelling support, and Gerrard has urged the home support to create an ‘electric’ atmosphere ahead of the visit of the defending champions.

“There’s no doubt about it, the atmosphere will be electric tomorrow,” Gerrard told his pre-match press conference.

“We need our fans right behind us, we want them to push us all the way. We want them to take the roof off.”

Connor Goldson is a huge doubt for Rangers after he limped off in the 1-1 draw with Hibernian on Boxing Day, whilst Ryan Kent, Scott Arfield and Gareth McAuley will all face late fitness tests.
