🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿⚽🏆 Former Rangers striker Kris Boyd on why his former team will have a better chance this season

​The Scottish Premiership kicked off their 2020/21 season on Saturday afternoon and Celtic will be looking for their first season win against Hamilton on Sunday.

Neil Lennon's charges have been tipped as the favourites to win their tenth league despite their rivals Rangers giving them a run for their money last season.

However, Kris Boyd in his column for the Scottish Sun believes that the Gers might just surprise The Hoops this season as the nine-in-a-row champions are missing some of their star players.

"There's been no stopping Celtic for the past nine seasons. But this is Rangers’ year," Boyd wrote in his column.

"If there is anyone at Ibrox who doesn’t believe that, they’re playing for the wrong football club and someone should show them the door.

"If Steven Gerrard can get a group of players together who knows what these next ten months are all about, I can see them winning the title.

"Celtic aren’t as strong as they have been in recent years. For me, they’re definitely weaker.

"On the flip side, Gerrard is a year older and wiser and I can genuinely see him leading my old club to something special.

"There was nothing between the teams in last season’s Old Firm games and while I know that’s not the be-all and end-all when it comes to winning championships,

"I see it as a huge gauge for what’s lying ahead in the coming months... I just look at the Celtic side and don’t think it’s as strong as it was."

Boyd made 543 career appearances with 244 goals before retiring having plied his trade for Kilmarnock, Rangers, Middlesbrough, and short stints for Nottingham Forest (loan), Eskisehirspor and Portland Timbers.
