Speaking on TalkSport, the retired midfielder also had a dig at Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers.

He said: “They’re doing well Rangers. Great win yesterday.

“Give Rangers a bit of credit, they’re catching Celtic, they’re only nine points behind them now.

“With Celtic drawing yesterday against St Johnstone, has the Brendan Rodgers bubble burst?”
