Loovens sure of Celtic's strikers

Glenn Loovens has disputed Kenny Miller's assertion that Rangers’ superior ‘firepower’ will see the Ibrox side retain their Scottish Premier League title.

The Govan club have a 10-point advantage over Celtic with a superior goal difference of 20 ahead of their game against Motherwell.

Miller claimed that the Light Blues’ squad contained ‘enough firepower to go and win this league,’ but ahead of the visit of Hearts tonight, Loovens, encouraged by the fact that all three new boys scored in the 4-2 Scottish Cup win against Dunfermline at East End Park on Sunday, had his say.

“I don't really agree with that,” he said.

“We have some great strikers. If you have seen our recent games then you will have seen the chances we have created.

“It's just for us to wait for that one game where it all clicks and they will all go in. There are still 15 or 16 games so there are plenty of points to play for.

“We have to play Rangers twice so we will see, but we need to make sure we get a run going and don't drop any more points.”
