Rangers legend Barry Ferguson is feeling confident his old side can win the title this season - but is worried it could all come down to a dodgy VAR decision. 

The Light Blues could be in pole position should they win their game in hand against Dundee, due to be played on April 10, and avoid defeat versus Celtic three days earlier. 

And the former Rangers captain is excited for the season run-in with both Glasgow rivals separated by a single point. But has reservations about the influence referees, and in particular VAR officials could have in who lifts silverware come May.

"No excuses," demanded Ferguson in his Daily Record column. "We’re heading into the business end of the fiercest title battle we’ve seen in years and both Rangers and Celtic look set to do so with some big guns back from injury. 

"No disadvantages either. Sunday’s call-off at Dens Park would have been really disappointing for my old team and was a bad look on our game but don’t tell me it damages Rangers' hopes of becoming champions.

"This is the way it should be - two strong teams going at it hammer and tongs to decide who is ultimately the best. It’s why I’m absolutely buzzing for the final couple of months of the Premiership season with some really influential players coming back for both teams at the perfect time.

"My only fear? I’ve got to be honest. It’s VAR. Am I concerned a needless decision from the video assistants could have an impact on the title? 100 per cent. I’m worried some crazy decision could happen during one of the key games that will become the talking point.

"And we don’t want that. We absolutely don’t want any excuses. We want to be talking about what’s happened on the pitch football wise - creating chances, good moves, great goals, individual performances and tactics. 

"But I go into games now fearing that a dodgy red card or a crazy handball decision in the box is what could be the big talker at full time. I just pray it’s not what’s on everyone’s lips at the end of the title race. But the way VAR is going, there’s every chance it could be. Let’s be honest, it’s here to stay but it needs to be so much better.

"It is refereeing games and refs aren’t being allowed to do what they’re on the pitch for. Some of the decisions this season have completely baffled me. It’s not just handballs - although they’re probably the biggest controversies - but some of the red cards being dished out are incredible. Anything can look bad in a still picture. Not just that but some decisions are taking five minutes to make. How on earth can that be clear and obvious?

"The handball rule needs cleared up too. Defending is an art. But now defenders are scared. They are trying to close down shots and crosses with their arms behind their back - and THAT’S unnatural. 

"Back to the title race though and Rangers will be frustrated that Sunday’s game at Dundee was called off. But again - it can’t be used as an excuse. There’s no disadvantage to Rangers if you ask me. 

"The game will go ahead on April 10 three days after the Old Firm and, while they would have liked to have gone into the international break on the back of a win, hopefully they’ll have a stronger squad available when the game comes round."
