Neil McCann not sure if Rangers have enough of one thing to win at Celtic but gives Ibrox side 'fighter's chance'

Neil McCann reckons Rangers have a fighters chance to beat rivals Celtic - but has questioned whether Rangers have enough CHARACTERS in their ranks.

Brendan Rodgers and Philippe Clement have completed their preparations and media duties this week with the countdown firmly on as the city rivals get ready to lock horns in a blockbuster top of the table clash at Parkhead. As things stand, the Hoops hold a three point advantage and superior goal difference going into the showdown. A home win will all but secure the title for Celtic but a win for the visitors will draw the sides level at the summit with two games to go.

Former Rangers winger McCann believes his old club MUST show more than they have in recent outings to leave Glasgow's east end with maximum points. He has told the 11 players that Clement picks from the off that they need to have minerals and have to show they've got much more in their lockers than just ability. It promises to be a pulsating 90 minutes at Celtic Park with pundit well aware his ex-employers must go into their rivals' backyard and triumph to have a realistic shot at league glory.

Speaking on Go Radio, McCann said: "I think they have to go to Celtic Park looking to win the game. Obviously, Celtic then need to go play Kilmarnock after the Rangers game which will be a real tough, tough game. Kilmarnock have done so well against both Old Firm this season but particulary Celtic then home to St Mirren in their last game.

"If Rangers have aspirations of winning the title then they need to go there and do something that I am not sure a lot of people think they are capable of. I think they have a fighter's chance but they need to show more than what they have been shown of late.

"This game, you always have to play well, but it is so much to do with character and I am just wondering whether Rangers have got enough characters in that team. But a large portion of the starting XI in particular need to have a lot of minerals about them going to Celtic Park and show they've got more than just ability.

"I think at times, particularly in the last numbers of weeks, when it is really, really important not to make any slip-ups and give your main opposition any legs-ups. It comes down to how you approach the game and I think there is one or two guys who haven't shown their best."
