Rangers turmoil won’t distract Celtic – Rodgers

Rangers will be weakened by the suspension of Joe Garner, who scored a hat-trick in last weekend’s 6-0 thrashing of Hamilton Academical in the Scottish Cup.

However, striker Martyn Waghorn believes Rangers can become the first Scottish side to defeat Celtic this season and make up for the disappointment they suffered on their last visit.

“Of course we can get a result at Celtic. We must believe in ourselves. We are playing some good stuff. We have turned the corner after a difficult few weeks,” the former Wigan Athletic forward said.

“We will go there with a lot of confidence. If anyone can beat them it’s going to be us. We need to be right on our game but it’s an Old Firm game and anything can happen.”
