Alan Stubbs reckons Rangers are starting to buckle under the pressure of the title race.

Gers were in the driving seat for Premiership glory before dismal results at Ross County and Dundee saw them fall three points behind Celtic. With just four games to go, Brendan Rodgers' side are now potentially just TWO wins away from clinching three-in-a-row, and could all but wrap up the league in next week's Glasgow derby at Parkhead.

Stubbs can't see the Hoops throwing away their league crown and questioned 'strange' comments made by Ibrox boss Philippe Clement in the wake of their recent stuttering form.

The ex-Hibs boss and Celtic defender told talkSPORT: "I think Celtic have responded like champions. I think Rangers have wilted under the pressure a bit, I must admit. Celtic have been quietly letting a lot of people do the talking about them, where Brendan has been there and done it.

"I think Celtic are in a really strong position right now. Their [Clement] manager has come out with a few strange comments which I didn't get after the Old Firm game and the Dundee game after that. But I just feel like Celtic are in the prime position right now to do a Double - which people will probably look at as a mediocre season!"
