Rangers manager Michael Beale believes they need to win every game between now and the end of the season if they are to reclaim the title from Celtic.

The Ibrox side are currently nine points behind Ange Postecoglou’s men, who have a far better goal difference, with the next Old Firm game on January 2nd.

Beale got off to a winning start as Rangers boss as they beat Hibs 3-2 from behind. An important week lies ahead, starting with a trip to Aberdeen on Tuesday night, live on InNewCL Sports.

And the manager knows he has to be close to perfect to have a shot at the title at the end of the season.

“My job, along with the rest of the staff and the players, is to build strong Rangers to play well and excite our fans,” he told InNewCL Sports News.

“If you look at the table with Celtic nine points clear, we would have to win every game, including the games against them until the end of the season, and catch up on goal difference.

“Let’s not play around, we know we have work to do. We don’t have much room for error.”

Tuesday, December 20 7:30 p.m. Start 8:00 p.m

Rangers will have defender Connor Goldson back for the Pittodrie trip after two months, but striker Antonio Colak will again be absent.

“Connor has a strong voice, he was all you could hear in the games behind closed doors! When you have a player who is so consistent that when he’s absent it rocks the squad,” added Beale.

“Colak is not available, he will be on Friday. We need to continue our performance in the second half until the games start on Tuesday.

“Everyone is aware of the defenders we’ve been missing in recent weeks. I’m happy to say that tomorrow night I’ll have centre-backs in the team.”

It was a very defensive display from Aberdeen on Saturday as they lost 1-0 to Celtic in Pittodrie and Beale expects a tough game.

“I came to watch the game at home and Aberdeen felt after the game that maybe they got it wrong, I listened to Jim [Goodwin, Aberdeen manager]’s post-game comments,” added the former QPR boss.

“Their home form was fantastic over the weekend. They were three or four minutes away from getting the result they wanted.

“I don’t remember Jim, I can focus on Rangers and we have to pick up where we left off on Thursday. I thought our second half was going in the right direction.

“They have a player or two that I know in Ross McCrorie and Leighton Clarkson, certainly in Leighton’s case a lovely technical player who came on loan from Liverpool.

“It’s going to be a good game, an open game, second against third, so there’s everything to play for.”
