Radio Clyde pundit Gordon Dalziel has slammed Rangers’ form since the winter break as “horrendous” and lavished praise on how Celtic have started 2020.
Speaking live following the latest set of results in the Scottish Premiership, Dalziel claimed Rangers need a “miracle” to get back into the title race and compared the contrasting forms of the two Scottish sides.

READ CELTIC VERDICT
With the gap at the top between Celtic and Rangers now 10 points, it’s hard to disagree with Dalziel here when it comes to the respective form of the two.
The Hoops have come out of the blocks firing on all cylinders since the winter break, winning their first eight games of 2020 by a resounding aggregate score of 28-3.
Meanwhile, Rangers have already dropped eight points in the league since the return following Wednesday’s defeat to Killie, a draw with Aberdeen at the start of the month and the loss to Hearts in January.
And even Steven Gerrard has admitted that the Hoops are now in the driving seat.
"That second-half performance alarmed me, we couldn't handle the pressure."

However, there is still a lot of football to be played this season, including two Glasgow Derby’s and Rangers’ game in hand, so that gap could quickly close if Celtic let their foot off the gas.
