Rangers accused of having Celtic 'inferiority complex' as Hoops hero previews Scottish Cup final

Andy Walker reckons Rangers have an inferiority complex which isn't helping them when they come up against Celtic.

The Light Blues have failed to beat the Hoops this season with just one point gained from the head-to-head fixtures, from the 3-3 draw at Ibrox. And their faltering in recent months has allowed their great rivals to pull clear, culminating in them lifting the title after thumping Kilmarnock last night.

There is still the Scottish Cup final to come when both Glasgow giants face each other for the final time this season. Gers have the chance to salvage their season somewhat and could have a cup double to show for it after securing the League Cup earlier in the season, with Celts obviously going for a league and cup double.

Celtic hero Walker reckons they will be "champing at the bit" for the showpiece final while Rangers may have an inferiority complex to get over.

Speaking on Go Radio, he said: "Now it is all down to the big game in a couple of weeks at Hampden. That is the chance for Rangers to get back. But I would question whether Rangers have an inferiority complex against Celtic just now. They've played four games, lost three and drawn one. They've never been in front, or had something to hold on to.

"They've had a period of 15, 20 maybe 30 minutes that they have looked decent but this is a manager in Philippe Clement who is looking at a Celtic team who I think are improving just at the perfect time of the season. I think the players will be champing at the bit just to get on that pitch at Hampden and go again, and win a double."

Barry Ferguson added: "That is the question mark against this Rangers team at this moment in time. When they come up against Celtic they struggle to get a result. If that is me in the dressing room I would be desperate to try and do something about it.

"They've got a game at the weekend against Hearts. It will be interesting to see how many players are back for the manager. There were 11 missing Tuesday night and out of that maybe three or four are certain starters so that is the question mark labelled against this Rangers team at this moment in time. When they come up against Celtic, can they get past them?"
