Video: Mark Wilson Reckons Rangers are in a “Nightmare Situation” Ahead of Celtic Clash

Mark Wilson believes the Rangers players find themselves in a “nightmare situation” this weekend, as they try to halt Celtic’s title party for another week.

Celtic slipped up last Saturday when they lost 2-1 to Hibs, meaning Brendan Rodgers’ side have had to wait seven days to take one step closer to the double treble with a potential victory against Rangers on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Rangers are still be reeling from their harrowing 4-0 defeat to the Hoops last time out in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden.

Since then, Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace have been suspended and rumours have been circulating that Graeme Murty will be relieved of his position at the end of the season.

And ex-Celtic defender Wilson told Open Goal‘s Si Ferry a combination of those factors mean that the Gers must be heading into the final Old Firm derby of the season with serious nerves.

Wilson also predicted that his old team will do the business against their fiercest rivals with a “far superior” performance:


Tom Rogic, Callum McGregor, Moussa Dembele and Olivier Ntcham were all on the score sheet during that 4-0 rout, while Ross McCrorie was sent off for Rangers.

Can we expect a better showing from Murty’s side this time around? Or will Celtic once again run rampant against their nearest and dearest?
