Celtic manager Gordon Strachan believes Rangers now have the advantage over them as the race for the Clydesdale Bank Premier League title heats up.

The Parkhead side's stumble in recent weeks has allowed the Light Blues to position themselves two points behind their traditional rivals at the top of the SPL table and they have games in hand against the bottom two sides, St Mirren and Gretna.

Celtic, who have cantered to the championship in the last two seasons, take on both the Borderers and Rangers at Parkhead within the space of four days. Strachan is well aware of how crucial those two games can be for his side's title aspirations.

He said: "Everybody said they wanted a closer league competition and now we need to show a new type of quality.

"In the last two seasons we have been in front from the beginning.

"Now we are hanging in there, two points ahead of Rangers but having played two games more.

"Rangers are the favourites now."

would have been more confident if we saw off aberdeen. A win today will be a good way to show we are up for the fight and we do have the advantage with the two games in hand but its all mind games from strachan

just mind games, wee chesney is bricking it though. Got a fight on his hands for the first time in 3 years. We need to destroy hibs today to boost our confidence and scare the hell out of the celtic players. Then stuff them at celtic park. If we do that i might consider us favourites but untill then most people would consider them favourites.
