Rangers have had their odds slashed on winning the Scottish Premiership this season.

Gers went two points clear at the top of the table after a terrific weekend - where they managed an impressive 5-0 mauling of Hamilton while rivals Celtic lost 2-0 at Livingston.

It's the second time in as many weeks the Hoops have dropped points after having drawn 1-1 with Hibs last week.

Celtic backed into odds-on favourites to secure ten-in-a-row after Rangers win

Rangers on the other hand have scored ten goals in their last two league outings with a similar 5-0 hammering of Aberdeen last weekend.

Now, according to Oddschecker, Steven Gerrard's men have been backed into 6/5 to halt Celtic's nine in a row chase.

Neil Lennon's troops remain odds on favourites for this season's silverware at 4/6.

But after last weekend, a flood of bets were placed on the Ibrox side and their odds were cut from 21/10.

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: "Looking to prevent Celtic from securing the ultimate Glaswegian bragging rights, Steven Gerrard is a man on a mission: to end their hopes of 10 consecutive Scottish Premiership titles.

"Walter Smith's nine-in-a-row with Rangers in the 90s is still the Scottish record, and there's no doubt Gerrard will be a Gers legend should he leave Celtic stranded on eight this season."
