Celtic blew their chance of winning the double but their Old Firm rivals Rangers have a great chance of twinning FA Cup success with glory in the league, which would be a remarkable achievement, despite their division being a couple below that of their neighbours.
The League One title is as good as wrapped up now while Ally McCoist’s boys are just three games away from lifting the cup and the first of those games, with all due respect to Albion Rovers, looks like a ‘gimme’.
Bookies agree and the ‘Gers are subsequently just 1/10 at bet365 to send the Wee Rovers packing but that won’t pay off the mortgage so punters might have to be a touch more creative if they’re to cash in on the Light Blues’ likely dominance.
Firstly, they’re a more healthy looking 5/6 courtesy of Winner.com in the handicaps, where they start a couple of goals in arrears and they’re 7/5 (Paddy Power) when starting three goals back at Ibrox.
Bigger gains are on offer in the correct score market, Winner.com posting 17/2 against a 4-0 triumph for McCoist’s men and William Hill rating Rangers at 6/1 to net twice without reply while BetVictor’s 9/20 for the hosts to be in front at the end of each half is banker material.
However, the safest flutter is arguably bet365’s 11/4 about Jon Daly breaking the deadlock. The ‘Gers front man has racked up an impressive 19 goals in his 27 starts across all competitions this term, including five in his last seven and he also appeals at 11/5 (bet365) to net at least twice.
Jon Daly to score first – 11/4 (bet365)
