The Risk That Murty And Rangers Must Take Against Celtic

The Risk That Murty And Rangers Must Take Against Celtic

I`m already bristling with anticipation right now and we`re still days away from kick-off.

These games, in recent years, have always perhaps been filled with a slight sense of dread thanks to what we`ve had to go through.

It`s been unfair at times and, despite never believing for a second we weren`t still going to beat them, we`ve certainly not been able to go in on an equal footing.

Now, though, we`re on the way back.

We all know it, the players know it and, best of all, they know it and they`ll be coming into an Ibrox atmosphere arguably more confident than we`ve been in half a decade.

A lot has been made of the title race all of a sudden ahead of this game, just to crank up the pressure a little more, but, actually, we can play freely.

That`s why, then, I`d risk bringing in Lee Wallace to only increase the intensity on Celtic.

The skipper has worked his way back to fitness and is in contention to start and I think having his presence on the field only lifts both the players and the crowd.

And, when that happens, we become even more fearless and up for a game that we`ve got a serious chance of winning.

We can`t be too confident, of course, but you can sense who the momentum is with right now and with Wallace on the field helping to organise and rally in the chaos, I think we`ll emerge victorious.

It`s a risk, of course, because he`s not match sharp but if there`s one game to get you running it`s this one, and I think it`ll start our charge to a close-run title race.

Agree with me? Would you start Wallace? Let me know below!
