Smith keen to settle title issue

Rangers manager Walter Smith insists he is not bothered where they win the Scottish Premier League title just as long as they complete the feat.

Sunday's 2-0 victory over Hearts at Ibrox moved Smith's side to the cusp of winning the title for the second successive season.

However, their title celebrations are now likely to be held away from home as their next three games are all on the road.

"Every team, if they are going to win a championship would like to win it at home, but it does not always work out like that," Smith told BBC Scotland.

"If it takes more than one game, as long as we do it, I don't care.

"We know we have to go to Easter Road (to play Hibs) next week and at least get a draw, but we will go and try to win the game."

Speaking about Sunday's victory, he added:"We did not play well in the first half of the game all.

"Hearts were the better side in the first half and we did not get to grips with it.

"But it was better in the second half and, once we got the goal, with a bit more care, we could have added more goals to the scoreline."
