John Brown shares the only side capable of stopping Celtic winning title

By Emma Sanders

Rangers legend John Brown claims no other team are capable of winning the Scottish Premiership other than Celtic or his former club.

Brown believes Mark Warburton’s side are the only ones who can stop their local rivals from winning the title despite Celtic boasting a commanding gap so far.

The former Ibrox legend admitted he wasn’t concerned about Celtic potentially going on to win 10 games in a row and was solely focused on his team’s ability to progress under Warburton.

“I don’t worry about 10 in a row. Can you hold your breath for four years? It’s a long time, a lot of things can change,” said Brown, as reported by the Daily Record.

“Rangers will be a force again next season and will be a hell of a lot stronger. You’re in a city with two teams – well actually you’re in a country with two teams.

“No disrespect to the rest but none of them is going to win the Premiership – it’s either Rangers or Celtic.”

The 54 year-old was part of the Rangers squad which won nine games in a row in 1997 but it looks unlikely Warburton’s side will achieve that feat.

Rangers have been inconsistent this season and have already lost two Old Firm derbies against Celtic, including a humiliating 5-1 defeat in September.

They currently sit in second position, nine points off Celtic who are starting to run away with the Premiership title following an impressive victory against Aberdeen last weekend.
