Motherwell v Rangers: TV times, kick-off, odds and team news

0

RANGERS will make the short journey to Fir Park on Sunday as Steven Gerrard’s men go chasing another victory that would strengthen their hold on top spot in the Scottish Premiership.

Having defeated the Steelmen 5-1 on the last occasion the two sides met in Lanarkshire, the visitors will be confident of travelling back to Glasgow with all three points.

But with former Salford City boss Graham Alexander now at the helm of the out-of-form side, it will be an altogether different Motherwell team that Rangers are facing this time around.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.

What are the pre-match odds?

Unsurprisingly, the men from Govan are the bookies’ favourites to walk away with another three points on Saturday. The league leaders can be backed at around 1/3 and if you fancy the hosts to pull off an upset, most bookies are offering odds of around 11/1.

What’s the latest team news?

Scott Arfield and Kemar Roofe will be out of action for Rangers, while midfielder Ryan Jack is unlikely to make an appearance as he steps up his recovery from a knee injury.

Motherwell, meanwhile, will have former Livingston and Partick Thistle winger Steven Lawless available for selection after the 29-year-old joined the club earlier this week. Goalkeeper Scott Fox and defender Charles Dunne are out long-term and won’t feature, while Liam Donnelly is still recovering from knee surgery.
