Connor Goldson accepts that Rangers will have to bring their A game if they want to end their title drought.

Rangers centre-back Connor Goldson has urged his team-mates to produce their best performance of the season as they prepare to face rivals Celtic in the Scottish Betfred Cup final on Sunday (Rangers 9/5, draw 5/2, Celtic 6/4 – Match Betting).

Sunday’s battle at Hampden Park will be a huge occasion for both teams, with Rangers looking to win their first major title since 2011.

On the other hand, Celtic are looking to win their 10th domestic trophy in a row, and Scotland’s two biggest teams are set to deliver another classic on the big stage.

Only two points separate them at the top of the Scottish Premiership after Rangers failed to beat Aberdeen in midweek.

Steven Gerrard’s men lost the first Old Firm game between the pair in September, with Neil Lennon’s side securing a 2-0 win at Ibrox.

Gerrard may be without midfielder Steven Davis, while Borna Barisic is struggling with a foot injury.

 

Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard (9/2 to score first) has missed the last three matches due to injury, but he is set to start at Hampden Park.

With the pressure on, Goldson says everyone must dig deep if they want to get their hands on the trophy.

He told Rangers TV: “I think in Old Firm games you need everyone to perform and everyone to perform to their maximum so if we can all give 100 per-cent and all perform the way we can, then hopefully we can come back with a winners’ medal.

“I think if you look at the course of the season so far that we have been performing really well and we are still in a really good position.

“But we have a great chance on Sunday to put that right and end that wait and hopefully make a lot of people happy.”
