Rangers target top spot

Rangers have the chance to regain top spot in the Scottish Premier League with victory over Kilmarnock at Ibrox this afternoon. Walter Smith’s side had been widely written off around the turn of the year when they trailed Celtic by seven points. But their Old Firm rivals have stuttered of late – they play at Motherwell tomorrow – allowing Rangers to close the gap to two points.

Roving role brings out the best in reborn Brown

Scott Brown is refusing to take his place in the Celtic midfield for granted, despite his superb recent form. Brown, 23, has delivered a series of all-action performances in recent matches after being given more licence to roam by manager Gordon Strachan. And he believes the return of Marc Crosas from a three-month injury lay-off in Saturday's Scottish Cup win over Dundee shows Celtic now have an embarrassment of riches in the middle of the park.
