FORMER Celtic attacker Kris Commons reckons Rangers' 1-1 draw with Hamilton on Sunday afternoon could provide Steven Gerrard and his players with the 'wake-up call' they need to secure the Premiership title.

The men from Ibrox are cruising to their first top-flight title in a decade and enjoy a 21-point gap between themselves and Celtic in second, albeit having played an extra two games.

Gerrard's side have only dropped points on league duty four times this term and are still unbeaten with 10 fixtures left to play, but were on the receiving end of a shock against Accies at the weekend when Ross Callachan scored a deserved late equaliser to snatch a point.

Commons believes that the league leaders' poor display against Hamilton could serve as a much-needed reminder that the title is not quite wrapped up yet, although the former Scotland internationalist is in little doubt that the trophy will end up in Govan at the end of the season.

And Commons, writing in his column in the Daily Mail, thinks there is one player more than any other who is in danger of losing his place in Gerrard's starting XI if he doesn't improve quickly: Ryan Kent, the former Liverpool winger who started the season brightly but has since seen his form tail off.

Commons wrote: "Listen, criticism is all relative with these things.

"Rangers have still had an outstanding season overall and they will deservedly finish as champions.

"But this should serve as a wake-up call. This was the first match where a slight element of complacency seemed to have crept in among the players.

"Gerrard will come down on them like a ton of bricks if he gets the sense they're in cruise control.

"They've come too far now to start throwing away silly points.

"But he needs his attacking players to rediscover their best form because his team have lost a little bit of sparkle from what they were producing before.

"Ryan Kent is one who can certainly do more.

"He was arguably the best player in the country over the first couple of months of the season, before James Tavernier took over.

"Kent has only scored one league goal since November.

"Yeah, he's chipped in with a couple of assists since then, but you do expect more from an outlay of £7million.

"Six league goals in 28 games isn't exactly anything to write home about.

"Particularly when Alfredo Morelos isn't in the team, Kent needs to step up and offer more."
