Charlie Nicholas has weighed in on John Hartson’s argument that Rangers should concede the title to Celtic – claiming that Gers fans would be seething if the Ibrox club called time on their Premiership challenge. 

The Hoops are currently 13 points ahead of Steven Gerrard's team, who have a game in hand, with eight matches left to play as Scottish football remains postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There have been doubts cast over whether or not it will be possible to complete the 2019/20 campaign and Hartson suggested that if clubs are unable to fulfil their remaining fixtures, then the Light Blues should consider conceding the title to their rivals.

And Nicholas, in his Daily Express column, has claimed the only credit the Light Blues would receive would be from Hartson himself. 

He wrote: "John Hartson said that if Rangers concede the title to Celtic they would come away with a lot of credit. But from who? Hartson? There is no chance of Rangers getting any credit from anywhere.

"Their own fans would be up in arms for a start. Rangers can't concede the title and why should they? As I have said all along Celtic need to win it for themselves. Hopefully we will get back playing and everything will be decided on the pitch as it should be."
