STEVEN GERRARD is confident Rangers can maintain their title momentum when they face Hibernian on Sunday.

The Light Blues could have slipped to second in the standings come kick-off in the Capital if Celtic are able see off Livingston at Parkhead tomorrow.

Hibernian have made an impressive start to the campaign under the guidance of boss Jack Ross and will look to become the first side to score against Rangers this term.

The Easter Road clash comes in between Europa League trips to Gibraltar and Holland for the Gers and Gerrard is encouraged by the form his side are in ahead of a tricky top flight test.

He said: "In terms of the schedule, we just have to accept what it is. We know it is going to be unique and different this year because of Covid.

"In terms of Hibs, they are a strong team, they are playing with confidence and a lot of rhythm in their game and they have got a good coach.

"It is going to be a tough challenge for us going to Easter Road but we are going there with confidence ourselves, we are playing well, defending well and look a real good threat going forward.

"We are going to Easter Road to attack and win the game and my focus is certainly on us and we couldn’t be in a better place going into it.

"I wouldn’t like to disrespect Aberdeen by saying that [this will be our toughest challenge domestically]. Going to Pittodrie for the first game of the season, on the back of a different pre-season, was a very big challenge as well.

"I don’t like to rate what was tougher. But what I will say is that Easter Road is going to be another tough challenge for us.

"We are playing against a good Hibs team that are in form so we treat this game in isolation but certainly with respect and confidence that we can go there and do the job."
