McCulloch: Old firm ‘closer together’ then they’ve been in years

Former Rangers player Lee McCulloch believes the gap between his old side and rivals Celtic is ‘closer’ than it has been in years.

Ryan Jack’s goal saw Rangers beat their Glasgow rivals 1-0 in Saturday’s Old Firm derby, taking them level on points with Brendan Rodger’s side at the top of the Scottish Premiership, and McCulloch believes Rangers have closed the gap after years of Celtic dominance.

“I think the weekend made it even more apparent that the teams are closer together than they’ve ever been in the last few years, so it’s definitely going to be an exciting run-in.’’ McCulloch told SSN.

“Rangers came out with a point to prove and maybe Celtic were a little bit complacent with a game in hand.

“Rangers thoroughly deserved to win the game and the Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers said that after the game.

“It’s going to be an interesting transfer window, that’s for sure.

“We’re halfway through the season and it’s at the wire now so I don’t see why, unless Celtic really flex their muscles and bring in three or four real big, big hitters, it can’t go all the way.”
