Ex-Celtic star Darren Jackson reckons Rangers' best chance at silverware this season will come in the cups.

Gers have not won a major trophy since 2015 when they lifted the Scottish Championship.

In terms of significant cup success they've been without since 2010 when they won the League Cup.

Meanwhile across the city, Celtic's dominance has reached new heights in recent years with an historic treble Treble sealed last season.

The Hoops, according to Jackson, are still too strong for the Light Blues and will win the Scottish Premiership for a ninth year in a row.

However the former Newcastle and Hearts forward believes Steven Gerrard's men have a good chance of ending their barren run in a one-off cup final - if they can make it past Livingston this evening and beyond.

"I think they'll demand a trophy from themselves this year," Jackson said on PLZ Soccer.

"It would stop Celtic winning a treble which could also be a big thing, maybe not for Rangers, but for fans as well.

"They've got a better team this season. I think they can compete.

"I watched the Old Firm game and I still think Celtic are beyond them just now, but in a one-off game in a cup final you know anything can happen.

"Without doubt they've got a stronger squad, there's no-one in there you would say probably shouldn't be there who came up the ranks when they were winning lower leagues.

"They have a stronger squad that, if they do change it, it's not weakening the team now."
