NORTH OF THE BORDER ..............



Rangers are looking to complete their first cup and league double in six years after reclaiming the SPL title last weekend. They have stepped up a gear in recent weeks and took 25 points from a possible 27 to keep Celtic at bay. Falkirk had an emotional roller coaster of a day at Inverness last week, where victory preserved their SPL status, doubtless they celebrated at least as much as Rangers, probably more and can now enjoy their day in the limelight. They have underperformed against all the top six sides this season, collecting 82% of their meagre points tally against teams from the bottom half of the table.

I feel that the pressure is now off Rangers and that they can play without fear of Celtic breathing down their neck, they have an incredible record against Falkirk, winning all six meetings this season and all three last, by 7-2, 3-1 and 2-0 scorelines. It might be difficult for the underdogs to raise their game yet again and if the Gers take an early lead, they could easily run away with this. They will win and a two goal margin is the minimum I expect.

6.5 points Rangers -1.5 points 1.90 asian line.

Good Luck.
