Kevin Phillips expects ‘crazy scenes’ on the streets of Glasgow when Rangers lift the Scottish Premiership trophy on Saturday.
The former Sunderland hitman, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, admitted he has split opinions over fans breaking rules to celebrate.
On Thursday, the club released a statement urging fans to stay at home and be responsible with any celebrations.

This comes after wild scenes of celebration on the day Rangers beat St Mirren, essentially confirming their Scottish Premiership win.
Thousands celebrated outside Ibrox and later in George Square as the scenes drew criticism from Scottish Police and Holyrood.
When asked if there is an expectation of ‘crazy scenes’ on Saturday, Phillips told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, “Of course the are going to be crazy Glasgow scenes.
“We’ve already seen it from Rangers and other teams this season. It’s going to be impossible to police.
“You have just got to ask these people to be sensible. It’s difficult with how much it means to Rangers.
“Winning the title and rubbing it in Celtic’s nose. It’s unfortunate but we’ll be looking at scenes of people breaking all sorts of rules.
“One bit of me wants to see it but the other part wants them to be sensible. But that unbeaten record, what an achievement to celebrate.”
Rangers have the chance to clinch an unbeaten league season if they avoid defeat against Aberdeen.
Steven Gerrard’s side will also reach at least 100 points if they avoid a first loss of the campaign.
