Rangers star Daniel Candeias has claimed to a Portuguese magazine how he thinks the Gers could go on and win the Scottish title after closing the gap to leaders Celtic to nine points.
The Portuguese winger said that “anything can happen” in the title race, as quoted by the Daily Record, and it’s a refreshing change to hear a Rangers player openly say they feel there is a chance of winning the title.
Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic have dropped a surprising number of points recently after losing their long unbeaten record in December and it has opened the door for Graeme Murty’s side to challenge.
In recent years Gers fans have grown used to players and staff speak about treating opposition with respect and seeing how things pan out and having a first-team player even suggest that the title could be a possibility is a welcome change.
Rangers fans haven’t seen their side lift a major trophy since Walter Smith’s side lifted the Scottish Premiership in in 2011.
The Light Blues could very well go on and record what would be a huge surprise title win and pick up their 55th Scottish title that a few months ago absolutely nobody thought even remotely possible.
With the likes of Candeias, Josh Windass and Alfredo Morelos in the form of their careers, the Portuguese winger might just be onto something.
