Rangers have had a “great season” despite their shock exit from the Scottish Cup on Sunday, according to Kevin Campbell.
The former Arsenal and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, is adamant Steven Gerrard’s side would have taken winning just the Scottish Premiership title if it was offered to them at the beginning of the 2020-21 campaign.
The Light Blues lost on penalties to St Johnstone at Ibrox last weekend to end their hopes of winning a domestic double this season.
Host Jim White told talkSPORT on Monday that things are ‘not so sweet’ now for Gerrard in Glasgow and pointed to the Gers winning just one trophy in three seasons during his tenure.
Rangers welcome Celtic to Ibrox this Sunday as they look to maintain their unbeaten record in the league.
When asked by Football Insider if the Scottish Cup exit had tarnished their season, Campbell said:
“For sure Steven Gerrard and everyone at Rangers would have been desperate to do the double but there still season has still been a success.
“Sometimes you have to be satisfied with what you have got and if you offered the league title to them at the beginning of the season they would have taken it.
“I know they do not like losing but it happens. They are the champions and it has been a long hard slog of a season but their luck ran out. It is all part of life. It has still been a great season.”
