BULLISH Ally McCoist last night made his boldest prediction as Rangers boss ahead of tonight’s Old Firm crunch and roared: We WILL win.
McCoist heads to Parkhead knowing defeat against Celtic will see his side slip two points behind their biggest rivals at the top of the SPL having led by 15 less than two months ago.
But fear or contemplation of a negative result did not even enter the gaffer’s head as he made his startling statement on the eve of the game.
McCoist said: “I do believe we will win the game, absolutely.
“We have the players to win and it’s as simple as that. I have great belief in the boys here.
“Make no mistake about it, it’s a very tough place to go. But I see us winning the game.
“I would not be doing my job if I was being anything other than positive and confident.”
McCoist knows his troops are under pressure after squandering their massive points gap at the top.
But he added: “Would Celtic rather go into this game not playing well but one point ahead? For me, you would rather be ahead.
“No matter what happens, when you ask me for my reaction afterwards I’m going to be positive.
“It’s three vital points but that’s all. The fact is you don’t need to win this game to win the league but I’d rather win these matches and the league.
“Celtic took more points from the Old Firm games last season and we won the league.”
