Kevin Phillips has tipped Rangers to go unbeaten in the Scottish Premiership this season despite a disappointing draw at Hamilton.
The 2000 European Golden Shoe winner, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed Gers boss Steven Gerrard will be pushing his players “behind the scenes” to ensure that complacency does not set in as he delivered his huge prediction.
The Light Blues conceded a 94th minute equaliser against the Accies on Sunday, having taken the lead in the 80th minute courtesy of a Brian Easton own goal.

While it will feel like two points lost for Steven Gerrard’s side, they remain unbeaten in the league and on course to win their 55th top-flight title.
Phillips suspects an unbeaten season may be on the cards with the Gers picking up points even when they do not play well.
“I think could be tough for them if they get the league wrapped up quite early, like Liverpool did last season, because complacency can then set in,” he told Football Insider.
“Once that title is sealed and delivered Stevie G will definitely be looking to go unbeaten. He will want to break some records and he will be pushing those players behind the scenes to make sure that they do not get sloppy.
“Rangers are a solid outfit and not too many teams will trouble them.
“I could see them going unbeaten until the end of the season because even when they have an off day, they win. It is the sign of a great squad.”
