Frank McAvennie has suggested that Rangers will have a psychological advantage in the title race if they win their next three fixtures.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the Celtic legend fears that Steven Gerrard’s side will win their next three games to put significant distance between themselves and the Hoops amid his former side’s lockdown breach.
Celtic defender Boli Bolingoli admitted he played in Sunday’s match against Kilmarnock despite having recently returned from Spain without quarantining.
Subsequently First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon has taken the huge decision to cancel Neil Lennon’s side’s games against St Mirren and Aberdeen.
The Gers play three times before Celtic return to action and if they take maximum points from those fixtures the Bhoys will find themselves 11 points behind their Glasgow rivals by the time they play Dundee United.
McAvennie suggested that such an outcome would place significant pressure on last season’s champions.
