Keith Jackson has insisted the Old Firm clash between Rangers and Celtic on 7 April is a must-win game for both sides with the SPFL title race approaching its conclusion.

Rangers: Keith Jackson shares title prediction with'self-destructing' Celtic

The journalist for the Daily Record expressed his opinion that, although the match would undoubtedly not be boring, a point for each team might provide both teams what they need.


The game should pick up after halftime, he continued, adding that both teams would be anxious to avoid losing with so much on the line.


Jackson stated in a piece published by the Daily Record on 6 April that, with everything on the line, this match may be considered a must-win for both teams. However, none of them will want to lose it.


Rangers’ ability to secure the top place is maintained with a draw in their current match. Similarly, all Celtic needed to do to maintain control over their fate was a point.


If the scores are tied at the half, all of this may be relevant. However, it won’t be boring at all. 2-2.

With the two leading teams now separated by only one point, the current title battle is among the tightest we have seen in recent memory. However, Rangers still have a game remaining that might potentially put them ahead.


With their game in hand—coming after the match against Dundee at Dens Park was suspended—and the chance to go five points ahead, Philippe Clement’s squad may leapfrog their opponents back to the top of the SPFL. They will play Celtic at Ibrox.


Jackson’s assertion that a draw may be beneficial for both teams is reasonable, but considering the importance of the match for the league and for giving their competitors a boost, both teams ought to enter the game intending to win all three points.


With so much football left to play, Ally McCoist and Alan Brazil laughed at rumours that the match would be a championship decider. However, as the game draws nearer and tensions build, there is undoubtedly a lot at stake at Ibrox.
