JASON HOLT is hoping that it is fourth time lucky for Rangers when they travel across the city to Parkhead on Sunday to face Champions, Celtic.

Holt has suffered own all three occasions so far this season when the two Glasgow giants have come head to head.

In September’s trip to Celtic Park, Mark Warburton tried to go toe to toe with Celtic and came away on the wrong side of a 5-1 hammering.

Then in October Warburton adjusted his tactics as he attempted to get the Ibrox side to the League Cup Final. While Rangers created little they did manage to hold out until the final few minutes before conceding to a well worked Moussa Dembele strike.

Rangers, with home advantage on Hogmanay got their noses in front after a first half tap in from veteran striker Kenny Miller but even with the Ibrox crowd behind them they were still left to lick their wounds after Brendan Rodgers’ big two summer signings, Dembele and Scott Sinclair gave the Parkhead side another 3 points. unspecified-3

So with Warburton gone and the Under-20’s coach Graeme Murty still in charge how with Rangers approach Sunday’s showdown?

“Probably no one is really fancying us,” Holt admitted today. “Celtic have done extremely well domestically this season and are unbeaten and like I said, that’s down to us.

“I think it’s just important that we go to Celtic Park confident and try get that win, they’ve done extremely well so far this season and we know what’s required.

“We know what the fans want and we want to do it for them. I think every Old Firm game we’ve went in to so far we’ve felt we could get something but we’ve not managed it, and we need to change that.

“We’ll go there with a plan and a strategy thinking that we can win and can take something from it.

“I think we have a point to prove because we haven’t beat them in three games this season, every game has been difficult, we’ve improved with every game without winning and we want to change that Sunday.”
