As every game comes, we are ever closer to finally confirming title number 55 and with Celtic looking down and out confidence is high, but consistency remains key.

A hard fought for but narrow victory away to Hibs last Wednesday is exactly the type of game that champions would win and Gerrard’s men should look forward to what should be another routine victory.

Rangers will be without enigmatic striker Alfredo Morelos as on Monday night Rangers accepted a 3 match ban for the Columbian after a stamp on wind up merchant Ryan Porteous, however Kemar Roofe looks to be back to full fitness and should be able to comfortably fill the void left by Morelos.

Rangers will still be without Scott Arfield for this one as he hopes to return to training by the end of the week. New boys Jack Simpson and Scott Wright may feature however a starting place after only just signing may be out of their reach.

Last time out against St Johnstone it was a simple yet elegant 3-0 victory away from home where Rangers really showed their class and excellent chance taking albeit Alfredo Morelos struggled to find the net on the night.

Since then St Johnstone have turned their form around only losing 1 game since and fending off Hibs to reach the League Cup final.

St Johnstone remain one of the many teams yet to score against Rangers this season and they may struggle to do so as after a man of the match performance Filip Helander will be in line for a starting place come Wednesday night.

As for predictions go I predict a simple 2-0 victory with Kemar Roofe grabbing both goals.
