Rodgers unsure on Rangers threat

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers says he is unsure whether or not Rangers will be closing the gap on them anytime soon, after spending a lot of money on developing their squad.

Rodger’s Celtic team remain unbeaten so far in the SPL, but Rangers are slowly but surely climbing back to their former selves – with many predicting that their recent spending will help lift them closer to their Glasgow rivals.

However, with the Old Firm meeting coming up this weekend, Brendan Rodgers says only time will tell on whether or not Rangers’ spending will enable them to close the gap on his Celtic side.

“We’ll see,” he said, when asked if Rangers will challenge this season.

“I’ll speak about Dundee, but there’s nothing more to add [on Rangers].”

“Time will tell. The league’s difficult, you have to be at your best every week to get consistent results.”

“The important [game] is always the next one. That’s always been the mantra here. I’ve only thought of Dundee.”

“Of course there are some great games on the horizon, but being away doesn’t hinder us. If anything, we’ve scored more goals away from home purely because the home teams have to come out a bit more.”
