Rangers face the "horrendous" pressure of trying to protect the history of their club's greats this season, says former Celtic captain Paul Lambert.

Steven Gerrard's side are bidding to deny Celtic the unprecedented feat of a 10th successive Scottish title.

Lambert helped Celtic halt Rangers' run at nine in a row in 1998, and rates it the "hardest title" of his career.

"There's a lot more pressure on trying to stop it than winning it," he told the Scottish Football podcast.

"If you don't win it, people are really disappointed, but you've still got nine and everybody's the same.

"But if Rangers lose 10 in a row now, the history of Rangers is gone. That's the pressure we had.

"John Clark, Billy McNeill, Bertie Auld, Ronnie Simpson, Jock Stein, Jimmy Johnstone, all those great guys... did you want to be known for losing their history?"

Lambert highlighted Celtic's momentum and stability in backing them to successfully chase down championship number 10.

And he says the mental strength of Rangers manager Gerrard and his players will be key to sustaining a challenge.

Rangers finished nine points adrift in Gerrard's first season and were 13 behind with nine games to play when last term was curtailed.

"If Steven doesn't know pressure, it will come now," former Scotland midfielder Lambert added. "The Rangers fans will make it a furnace of a place if they don't win.

"The Celtic pressure will be an enjoyable one. The Rangers pressure is going to be horrendous. It's not the Rangers guys' ability, it's in the brain. Mentally can they handle it?

"Chasing a title is incredibly tough when your rivals are a good bit away from you. If you can't handle that Rangers crowd baying for you to win every game to stop your oldest rivals taking away your history, players can capitulate in front of 50,000. They don't want the ball because they're scared."


What a load of pish the Celtic pressure will be enjoyable our legends history will be lost utter drivel.

In fairness, there are not that many, who will know more about managerial pressure than Paul Lambert. Most managers of struggling teams, are invariably under pressure.

Hold on a minute.

Is this fucking imbecile actually claiming that names like Laudrup, Gascoigne, Goram, Gough and McCoist managed by Walter Smith won't mean anything if the paedos win the league next season?

Albertz' knee must have hit him harder than we thought.

Horrible turncoat piece of shit.

We all know that lot never won the league this season and many other titles were won on the back of blatant corruption, them all actually.

If there was an ounce of justice in this world that club wouldn’t even exist due to their crimes against children.

He's kidding himself, we win the title this season and they will explode, they won't give a shit about the previous years it will all be wasted and they will want heads to roll.

I think all this talk of 10IAR is to rush part the fact 9 wasn’t achieved legitimately. Given their track record for ignoring fact they don’t like it’s hardly surprising.

The big story in Scotland right now is still the SPFL decision to halt the league prematurely, especially since we now know it would have been possible to finish. Even if we didn’t have the debacle surrounding the vote, newspapers should be questioning this and why Doncaster was in such a hurry to end the season and move on. After all, It’s cost teams money at a time they can barely afford it.

How can we lose 10 in a row when we did not compete in 4 of them ?

They keep trying to convince themselves about this but most folk dont care after the awarded title. Its meaningless in comparison to the other 9 in a rows.

It was pretty meaningless for most part even after 8, 4 one races and the first they got a big handicap rendered most a foregone conclusion, the 3 trebles and the last 2 more than anything are a far bigger concern to me, I was gutted we failed to win the LCF after dominating, I've little doubt they'd have won a 4th after that Hearts debacle.
