Murty: ” My Biggest Moment On Sunday ” / Rodgers: ” Huge Pressure On Gers ”
Written by RockSport on March 9, 2018
Rangers boss Graeme Murty says Sunday’s Old Firm match is “possibly the biggest moment” of his career so far.
The Ibrox side host Celtic on Sunday having lost six and drawn two of their past eight meetings with their Glasgow rivals in all competitions.
Premiership leaders Celtic, who have a game in hand, hold a six-point advantage over Rangers.
The 43 year-old Ibrox supremo said “I would say this is the game people are talking about most in my career. ”
The game at Ibrox on Sunday gets underway at 12 noon.
Murty stated last month he could stop Celtic’s march to the title this campaign and still not have a job at Ibrox next season.
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers believes “there’s huge pressure on Rangers” in Sunday’s meeting of the two teams.
Rodgers’ side, who have a game in hand, lead the Scottish Premiership with a six-point advantage over Rangers.
And after Sunday’s league match the Old Firm rivals will go head to head again in April’s Scottish Cup semi-final.
“It will be a tough game for us at Ibrox, of course, but we’ll get ready,” Rodgers said on the Celtic website.
“We’ve got a lot of work to do and we’ll need to perform better and more consistently in that game, but we’ve gone there three times before and performed very well.
“There’s huge pressure on Rangers in the game but we’ll have a good working week and go into that game and work as well as we can.”
