Should Rangers win or even draw against Livi, as we mentioned in our earlier entry, it will be the first time in over a full calendar year that Rangers have gone six matches in the league unbeaten.
The last time this happened was late September to early November, and included that huge win in Perth when Graham Dorrans and Carlos Pena pulled the strings.
While nothing would be definitive as a result of six unbeaten, it would show something in the way of momentum. Obviously, Pedro and Murty managed it too (combination of both of them) so how much such a run truly means in the grand picture is not exactly absolute.
But as Barry Ferguson used to say, things haven’t turned around until the club has ten wins in a row, or maybe eight or nine and a draw or two.
So far Stevie’s overall record remains 14 wins of 27 fixtures with 7 of 12 in the SPL. It’s all been quite mediocre so far going by the numbers, but the current league run of 5IAR could show signs of life.
Get that win (or draw) next weekend and Rangers have gone six league unbeaten for the first time since November 4th last year v Thistle.
Naturally we want the win – it would be three wins in a row in the league for the first time under Gerrard, but regardless, if we remain unbeaten come the end of play next weekend, it’s the right direction to suggest things might actually be turning around.
We shall see.
