Celtic's Rogne admits it will be 'special' to clinch title at Rangers

Celtic defender Thomas Rogne is hoping he and his teammates can get the right result in the Glasgow derby at Ibrox this Sunday.

The Hoops have the chance to wrestle back the title from Old Firm rivals Rangers, provided third-placed Motherwell fail to beat Kilmarnock on Saturday, and Rogne suggests it would be a marvelous occasion to lift the cup in front of the opposition supporters.

"Of course that would be special," Rogne told Celtic's official website. "That doesn't happen often.

"It's a big game and if we win there will be a lot of feelings involved, and if we win the league as well they will be even greater.

"At the time, we just have to think of it as a normal game, though. It will be 11 versus 11, two sets of goals, and basically we just have to win the game."

And Rogne suggests that the Rangers players will certainly not be thinking about the clubs financial situation when they take the pitch.

"I don't think the off-field problems will matter, really. They are professionals, so that is all they will be thinking about," he added.

"It's not a great situation to be in but I think they are professional enough to keep it out."
