Super Computer make Rangers Scottish Premiership prediction after win v Kilmarnock

Rangers have been backed to beat Celtic to the Scottish Premiership title in the 2022/23 season by a Super Computer after their 2-0 win against Kilmarnock.

FiveThirtyEight’s algorithm (6 August) has given Rangers a 51 per cent chance of regaining the SPL title after goals from Antonio Colak and Alfredo Morelos saw Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side past Killie.

Celtic have been given a 48 per cent chance of retaining their SPFL crown after their 3-1 away win against Ross County on Saturday (6 August).

Domestic focus

Rangers’ European run was remarkable last season and will certainly be remembered by the Ibrox faithful for years to come.

However, there needs to be a significant improvement on the domestic front after the Gers threw away their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership in the 2021/22 season.

Preventing Celtic’s ten in a row was a big moment for Rangers, but they must now ensure that they make themselves more of a force on the domestic front.

Van Bronckhorst must make his side dominate on a consistent basis in the SPL and try and replicate Celtic’s complete dominance in Scotland.

Qualification for the Champions League group stage is a must for Rangers.

They simply have to overturn their two-goal deficit against Union Saint-Gilloise on Tuesday (9 August) in order to keep pace with Celtic financially.

Champions League football dwarfs domestic and Europa League football financially and will allow for the Gers to continue adding more quality to their squad.

It’s been a good start to the season at Ibrox with two wins from two, but Rangers will know that any slip-up will mean the door is open for Celtic to continue their domestic dominance.

In other Rangers news, it is likely that talisman Alfredo Morelos will return for the Gers.
