Former Rangers star Andrew Little believes that the signs are pointing towards a very good Old Firm clash against Celtic at the end of this month, following the Gers' good display at Easter Road.

Steven Gerrard’s men were in complete control over Hibernian on Wednesday, but failed to secure maximum points at Easter Road as they were held to a 0-0 draw by the hosts.

Rangers had 19 shots, which was 12 more than Hibs managed on the night, although they lacked the killer instinct to find the back of the net and break the deadlock.

Despite slipping down to third and allowing Celtic to return to the top of the table with the result, Little says the signs are clearly there that Rangers can beat their rivals.

The former Ger also added that it has been a long wait for the Light Blues to get one over their rivals and stressed that a win would help them finish the year on a high.

“It’s about time they got one over on Celtic and I think the signs are looking good when you watch that tonight”, Little said on the official Rangers podcast.

“The signs are looking very good to get that victory that they have been waiting for far too long.

“And what a way to finish the year, with a win in that one and hopefully a return to the top of the table.”

Rangers will face St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park on Sunday and host Hibernian on Boxing Day before the Old Firm clash against Celtic at Ibrox.
