Rangers are closing in on the league title but Marvin Bartley thinks they can go one better by remaining unbeaten for the whole season.
The Livingston midfielder is well placed to judge having come up against the Gers this season.
He praised Rangers’ brilliant defensive organisation and suggests they have not shown any major weaknesses so far in the campaign.
He told the Go Radio Football Show, (24/01, 21:15), “I think they’ll be quietly confident that they can go unbeaten for the rest of the season, there’s nothing to show why they can’t.
“They’ve been absolutely fabulous all season, they don’t concede goals, you’re lucky if you get a few shots against them.
“Throughout the whole squad they’re absolute class. Would I be surprised if they go unbeaten? Not at all.”
We wouldn’t have gone into this season thinking we’d go unbeaten but with only eight games remaining, there is every chance we can pull off an invincible season.
There is the distraction of the Europa League but we have barely looked like losing a league game all season.
Motherwell were the last team to come close to beating us in January but our dominance in that game meant an equaliser was always likely – Cedric Itten finally found it late on.
Furthermore, Celtic are in disarray with Neil Lennon leaving on Wednesday so we’re looking forward to the next Old Firm game, when we might actually lift the title.
The most important thing will be our response when we finally claim number 55.
If we remain professional and focused on getting as many points as possible then it is difficult to see us losing.
Steven Gerrard will demand 100% focus too so like Bartley, we are quietly confident of going unbeaten.
That means we would end Celtic’s winning run in style.
