Rangers hero Barry Ferguson has urged Sheyi Ojo to keep his mouth shut after the winger reiterated his thoughts that Gers are the best team in Scotland.

The on-loan Liverpool star made the claims earlier this season after putting pen to paper on a deal.

When asked recently if he stood by his comments the playmaker said: "I stand by what I said and I think Rangers are in a good run of form.

"We are doing really well so far this season and we are looking hungry.

"Any team that looks hungry and is getting wins, it can only be positive. 

"Of course, we have to give Celtic respect but, from my own opinion, I believe we can have a really successful season."

Ferguson didn't take too kindly to Ojo's words and admits he'd have had more to say had he still been captain of the Ibrox outfit.

Speaking on PLZ Soccer, Ferguson said: "It's clear that confidence is high but keep it in-house.

"That would be my message and I'd probably say another few things that I can't repeat.

"I like confidence in players but when they come out and start saying things I don't like it.

"I never enjoyed it myself when I was playing and we spoke about it quite a lot as a team.

"If we're doing well, we'll just go about our business quietly, I prefer that."
