Rangers midfielder Ovie Ejaria is targeting the top position in the Scottish Premiership next week and has real belief that Steven Gerrard’s side can win the title this season.

“We dont really keep in touch but, oh yes, I would speak highly of this place to him. Rangers are a very good club and Ive enjoyed my time here so far and if I was to speak to him about it I would only have good things to say.

The Gers have a big opportunity to take the top spot in the table when we face Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday, with Celtic pre-occupied by their Scottish League Cup final against Aberdeen.

Ejaria urges Solanke to join Gerrard at Rangers

Three points would put us a point ahead of Brendan Rodgers’ outfit, albeit having played a game more.

Rangers could go top of the Scottish Premiership if they beat Hearts next weekend with Steven Gerrard’s squad on a current six-match unbeaten run in the league.

Ejaria reckons it’s a chance to show everyone we’re serious about winning the title this season.

“Alfredo Morelos is a top player who helps the team a lot, as we saw against Livingston, but Dom would also increase the strength in depth of the squad.

Could we stay there? Yes, definitely. But we have to take each game and use the confidence from each match.

There are a lot of top players here and everyone is focused. Thats our goal. As I said, we will take each game as it comes because it is a long season.

“He would be a very good addition – and dont forget Kyle Lafferty, whos another top striker. That would be really good.”

Its close at the top. We know Celtic are a very good side and were a very good side as well, so were confident we can do really well. Im not too sure how theyll see it, but we see it as a big opportunity next weekend.

Of course, this has been said before by a conveyor belt of talent in previous seasons, but our prospects do feel different this season for a variety of reasons.

Ejaria is currently on loan from the Reds for the season and he has urged Solanke to consider a move north of the border.

Firstly we’re taking great confidence from our European run, showing we can go toe-to-toe with quality sides across the continent. That has allowed us to find a new winning mentality. With players like Alfredo Morelos in fantastic form too, we have a goalscorer that can fire us towards major honours.

Celtic have a devilish set of fixtures in December which we must try and capitalise on before the big derby at the end of the year. The final stepping stone towards a serious title challenge is defeating the Hoops in one-on-one encounters.
