Gers on March to title glory


RANGERS boss Steven Gerrard has backed his Ibrox frontrunne­rs to streak across the Premiershi­p finish line this month after watching them sustain title-winning pace all season.

The Light Blues fans are set to have a March to savour, with their team just three wins away from their first league crown in a decade.

They could also grasp a place in the Europa League quarter-finals if they can fight their way past Slavia Prague.

A trip to face Livingston tonight is next up as Gerrard’s team looks to tick off another step on the way to the title.

But the Ibrox boss reckons this month is no bigger than any other they have faced this season.

He said: “We’re coming into March and everyone thinks it will be the pivotal month.

“However, every month so far has been key and important.

“We’ve completed them all because we’ve been consistent, been hungry and got the right results.

“March presents the opportunit­y to get over the line in terms of the league.

“We want to grab that as quick as we can. We don’t want to wait or to stumble. We want to win this league and that starts at Livingston.

“I don’t see any nerves or anyone looking tense.

“Our performanc­es recently have been of a really high level and I want to see that from now until the end of the season.”

The Tony Macaroni Arena has been a difficult venue for Gers in recent seasons and Davie Martindale’s side will be aiming to bounce back from their Betfred Cup final disappoint­ment.

“Livi are on the back of a tough weekend so we’re aware they are going to be wounded and looking to react,” said Gerrard.
