Jim White waxed lyrical about Philippe Clement and Rangers during his show on talkSPORT this morning.

Of course, we're now less than 48 hours away from the big derby between the Ibrox club and Celtic, with the Premiership title race set to go down to the wire for the first time in a long time.

The famous broadcaster attended an event with Clement, Graeme Souness and Jack Butland earlier this season.

And the former Sky Sports anchor went all-in on the Belgian, branding him "one of the most impressive performers I have seen."

However, his usual Friday morning guest, Arsenal legend Martin Keown, took the wind out of his sails somewhat, as he countered his point, instead deciding to back Brendan Rodgers to rely on his big game experience to see the Hoops over the line on Sunday.

“He has been impressive in his short time there," White started the conversation. "I think this guy has got a hold of the club and I think in his first season they are well capable of doing it.

"Who wins on Sunday is significant and important. Celtic have shown in the past they don’t need friends or fans there, but I just have a feeling Rangers will do it this time.”

But Keown interjected: “Yeah, you may have that feeling but I am pretty certain that Brendan Rodgers will be going in there with that big game experience.

"He has a lot of experience going in there compared to the Rangers manager, and they recently lost to Motherwell at home.

"So why can’t Celtic go there and win? We all know that it’s a different mentality when you got these as a Celtic player and you are playing at a full house. Whoever wins this one will be Scottish champions.”
