FORMER IBROX striker Kenny Miller has made the claim the League Cup final will have no baring on the outcome of the League title and it’s destination come May.
The man who has also worn the hoops and played for both oldco and newco Gers believes the cup final will be a great day out for one set of supporters but in the grand scheme of things won’t be detrimental to either sides League campaign.
“Rangers are in a good place, as are Celtic with Neil Lennon doing a fantastic job. The Cup Final is a massive game for both sides, with Celtic trying to continue their dominance.” He told SunSport.
“But Steven Gerrard and Rangers will be desperate to end Celtic’s run and also get their first silverware in eight years. There’s a lot on the line for both teams and someone will lose, but it shouldn’t detract from how good both teams have been this season.
“I don’t see the outcome of the final having a bearing on the league title.”
We’re not so sure if this is the case. A Celtic win would really hurt Steven Gerrard’s men. A loss for Celtic would be a knock to Celtic’s confidence. The argument could also be made that it could inspire the losing team to kick on and really up their game. Celtic haven’t really stopped since the last time The Rangers got a win at Hampden over them.
Miller is more trying to make excuses for The Rangers should they not win more than anything else.
Given both are on a winning run, it’s going to be a highly competitive game.
