CELTIC goalkeeper Craig Gordon has warned that Rangers have been unfairly written off in some quarters ahead of Sunday’s Glasgow derby.
The unbeaten Ladbrokes Premiership leaders are 33 points ahead of their city rivals and have scored eight goals against them in three victories so far this season.
Rangers might be going into the game without a permanent manager but Gordon is expecting “another tough match”.
The Scotland international, who signed a new three-year contract this week, said: “The two certainly that I have played in this season, the one at Hampden and the one at Ibrox, were only decided by a single goal. They are a good team.
“I think there is a little bit too much made of us being overwhelming favourites and ‘Rangers are coming to take a beating’.
“That is certainly not the case. We have to play and do the things we are good at, and we will have to defend as well. Because we know they create a bit of a threat on the break and they have good players, that have good quality and good experience.
“We know we are in for a tough game. We have to concentrate on ourselves and make sure we are doing the things we do well. If we do that we give ourselves a really good chance to win the game.”
