Scunnered Kris Boyd reckons the title race is now OVER after Rangers' shocking collapse.

Gers' long-awaited game in hand at Dens Park ended in a goalless draw as the Ibrox side lost further ground on Celtic at the top just days after crashing to a dismal 3-2 defeat in Dingwall. Now, Philippe Clement's strugglers must win all five of their remaining games - including next month's Old Firm clash at Parkhead - to stand a chance of getting their hands on the league trophy.

Celts now boast a three-point advantage and superior goal difference and Ibrox legend Boyd has waved the white flag by insisting there's no way back for his former club.

The Sky Sports pundit said: "I said after the Rangers vs Celtic game at Ibrox that it was going to be a tough ask, but they've made it a lot harder now. Rangers can go and win that game at Celtic Park now and it's still irrelevant. There's five goals in it as well... I just can't see any way back for Rangers now."

While Boyd was in a deflated mood, the same couldn't be said for Celtic hero Chris Sutton, who urged his colleague to cheer up. He said: "Is it Celtic's to lose? Of course it is. They are in front, three points ahead. I bet they can't believe what they are seeing. I do think they will win it."
