Legend explains when Rangers can challenge for the title

Former Rangers player Arthur Numan has revealed that he feels that the Gers need another three years before they can challenge for the Scottish Premiership title.

Numan has now stated his belief that it will take at least another three years before the once-mighty Rangers can re-establish themselves as giants of Scottish football.

He said, “I hope that within two to three years we can compete with Celtic again, but I still have my doubts about that.

“Celtic have a big squad, a good squad, players that can also play at a higher level. But with a little bit of confidence and some positive-thinking hopefully we can see Rangers competing with Celtic for the league again.”

The Gers are preparing for their first Old Firm derby against arch-rivals Celtic on Saturday and are overwhelming underdogs going into the match, especially as they are likely to be without key defenders Bruno Alves and Declan John.

Brendan Rodgers men are unbeaten domestically since the 2015-16 season and it is hard to see them losing during the weekend.
