Rangers defender George Edmundson has told the Scottish Sun that he expects Celtic to slip up at some point this season.

Celtic are the only team undefeated in the Scottish top flight this season.

So, even if Edmundson’s predictions comes true, they can afford to lose one and still be in front.

Edmundson’s Rangers side are still reeling after a shock defeat in their opinion against Celtic.

Neither team blinked domestically before the match and now Celtic have edged in front. Odsonne Edouard’s fantastic goal and a strike by Jonny Hayes is pushing the Celts’ confidence high.

However, Edmundson believes the Hoops bubble is going to burst when it comes to future matches.

He told The Scottish Sun: “It’s still early days in the season and I’m sure Celtic will slip up at some point.

“I don’t think they are going to go the whole season unbeaten. It was a little hiccup but there’s a long season of ups and downs to come.”

There are many matches between the two to come in the season but the recent win is a marker.

The 22-year-old believes the Gers are going to come out on top in the next Glasgow Derby. He believes that the atmosphere will be different and that will allow his side to prevail.

Edmundson said: “The atmosphere was good. I feel like I know how big a club Rangers is.

“But the atmosphere will be better next time – when we win!”

All eyes turn to the weekend’s games where any slip ups by either team can put the last game into greater context.

Let’s hope it’s the men in green going six points in front.
