“There’s no way in a million years” Rangers manager Steven Gerrard will think today’s 1-0 win over Celtic means they have wrapped up the title, according to Danny Mills.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley, Gerrard’s former England teammate Mills delivered his verdict after the Light Blues extended their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to 19 points.
A Callum McGregor own goal in the 70th minute at Ibrox saw 10-man Celtic succumb to a 1-0 defeat to their Glasgow rivals.
The Hoops have three games in hand over the Bears but Mills has claimed their win today will give Gerrard’s side a massive mental advantage.
He told Football Insider: “It goes a long way and psychologically it’s massive as well. But there’s no way in a million years Steven Gerrard starts to think that they’ve won the title.
“He’s been in situations at Liverpool – we all remember the slip.
“He knows how tough it will be, he knows how difficult it is to keep going.
“It was a massive game.
“From Rangers’ point of view, they did not want to lose. They would’ve been thinking ‘do not lose’.
“For Celtic, they had to go all out to win the game. They had to win the game, they had to claw it back.
“So that means Rangers had the advantage because they didn’t have to win the game.
“They won’t have wanted a draw but a draw would have been a good result with the position they are in.
“Celtic couldn’t go out and attack early because they could get hit but they had to go and win the game.”
