RANGERS winger Barrie McKay has fired a remarkable warning to champions Celtic that the Ibrox side won’t give up on the title.

The attacker netted the second goal as Mark Warburton’s men overcame Hearts 2-0 in Glasgow yesterday after Rob Kiernan had opened the scoring in the first-half.

Brendan Rodgers’ outfit are 
currently eight points clear at the top with THREE games in hand and have the opportunity to stretch that to 11 when they face Hamilton at Parkhead on Tuesday.

But McKay insisted no-one at Ibrox is accepting the flag race is over.

He said defiantly: “It’s not over until it’s over. We will push Celtic to the very last day of the season. 

“We go into every game looking to win. At this club, fans expect you to win games – no matter who you
 are playing.”

The Hoops will arrive at Ibrox on Hogmanay and have already beaten their opponents twice in this campaign – 5-1 in the Premiership at Parkhead and 1-0 in the Betfred League Cup semi-final.

Warburton’s side have three more matches before then and McKay knows they need to keep racking up the wins.

He added: “Wherever we go, we need to make sure we get those victories.

“Other than Celtic, the teams
 battling it out at the top of the table are Aberdeen and Hearts.

“But we have beaten them both here at Ibrox now without being tested as much as people might have thought.

“It was good to get three points against Hearts and answer a few of the
questions put to us after our defeat at Tynecastle.

”Teams are definitely starting to fear coming to Ibrox again. We went to Tynecastle and didn’t perform.

“It was a kick up the backside and we reversed that result.”
