Scott Sinclair shares hopes that Celtic have disproved this Rangers belief

By Harvey Byrne

Scott Sinclair remains hopeful that Celtic’s continued wins has disproved the belief that Rangers are closing the gap on their rivals.

The Scottish giants faced each other at Hampden Park last weekend, resulting in a 2-0 Celtic win after goals from Sinclair and Callum McGregor helped them to a vital victory over their rivals.

The Hoops are also 33 points clear of their Glaswegian rivals after 33 matches in the Premiership table and Brendan Rodgers’ men have already lifted the title with matches to spare.

Meanwhile, the Gers are placed in third in their first season back in the Premiership since their 2012 demotion, but many are keen to see the prestigious club competing for the title again.

Naturally, much of the discussion in regards to this season has been about the distance between the two Glasgow clubs and Sinclair has dismissed claims that Rangers are closing the gap.

“Hopefully we disprove Rangers are closing the gap on us with the way we keep winning every week,” told Sinclair, as quoted by the Daily Record.

“It’s a great feeling to win and there’s a lot of relief in the team but the thing is that was one of the best performances we’ve had all season.

“From the dressing room and going out on to the pitch there was just a feeling everyone was on it.

“As a player when you go out on to the field you sometimes just feel good and you can tell the team is feeling good.

“There was no doubt we knew we were going to win.”

Celtic have faced Rangers five times this season, earning four victories and one draw being shared between the two teams.

The two Old Firm rivals are set to meet once more on Saturday for the last time this season at Ibrox and Rodgers’ team will be keen to maintain their dominance over their most hated club.
