    Need to Know: A look at Rangers

    Need to Know: A look at Rangers

    Rangers pay their last visit of the 2018/19 season to Fir Park in a televised match on Sunday.

    Here’s a closer look at our opponents.

    Away form

    Rangers have had an up and down spell on the road in the league in 2019 so far.

    Three wins at Aberdeen, Hamilton and Livingston have been punctuated by a draw at Hibernian, and defeats at Celtic and Kilmarnock.

    Absentees

    Ryan Kent, Alfredo Morelos and Andy Halliday will all be absent through suspensions picked up as a result of last weekend’s Old Firm derby.

    Steven Gerrard will also watch the game from the stands, with the manager accepting a one-game ban for an incident after that match.

    Holding on against the inevitable

    It seems all but certain that Celtic will lift this year’s Scottish Premiership title, and so it all comes down to how quickly they do it.

    A victory for the leaders on Saturday against Livingston will leave Rangers needing to win at Fir Park a day later – or the title will be delivered to Celtic Park.

    Setting the scene on Rangers

    Setting the scene on Rangers

    Rangers visit Fir Park on Sunday, as the final game of the regular Ladbrokes Premiership season takes place.

    Here’s an early look ahead to the match.

    What’s at stake

    Motherwell have six games now to secure seventh spot in the Ladbrokes Premiership, and to pick up the six points needed to surpass last season’s points tally.

    If Celtic win at home to Livingston on Saturday and then Rangers lose to Motherwell, the destination of the Premiership title will be secured and Celtic will be champions.

    Tale of the tape

    Rangers’ win over Hearts on Wednesday was their first in four league games, having drawn two and lost one in the Premiership previously.

    Motherwell have now won six of their last 10 league matches, with defeat to Aberdeen on Wednesday their third in six.

    Stephen Robinson’s men, however, have won their last five at home. A sixth victory on Sunday will be the first time since 1975/76 that six successive home league matches have been won by the Steelmen.

    Head to head

    Little needs to be said about the last visit to Ibrox, but the last game between the two sides at Fir Park was a six-goal thriller.

    Peter Hartley’s last-gasp equaliser was a deserved one for the hosts, as the game flew back and forth to a 3-3 draw.

    Motherwell’s top six hopes ended at Aberdeen

    Motherwell’s top six hopes were ended at Pittodrie, as Aberdeen ran out 3-1 winners in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    Goals from Max Lowe and Niall McGinn did the damage, despite Jake Hastie restoring parity shortly before half time.

    Aberdeen’s opener came out of nowhere with four minutes gone. A harmless looking Max Lowe left-footed cross from the left sailed over everyone, including Mark Gillespie in the ‘Well goal, and into the top right corner of the net.

    The hosts would create more chances as the visitors took time to grow into the game, but their equaliser would come with 10 minutes to play in the half.

    Hastie had been threatening to try and get between defenders with runs inside, and Richard Tait picked him out perfectly after cutting inside from the left.

    The forward still had work to do as he cut across from the right to left, rounding Joe Lewis and placing the ball home to make it 1-1.

    Motherwell started brightly but with 10 minutes gone in the half were forced into a change after injury to goalkeeper Mark Gillespie.

    A lengthy stoppage resulted in Rohan Ferguson making his first competitive appearance for the Steelmen, but he was powerless to prevent McGinn getting the Dons back in front soon after.

    A weak shot from sub Greg Stewart ricocheted off Tom Aldred and unfortunately fell into the path of the Northern Irishman, who thundered the ball into the net from close range.

    Cadden and Frear were introduced to try and spark more attacking play but Aberdeen stood firm in defence, and McGinn added the clincher in seven minutes of added time with a curling effort into the top right corner of the net, ending Motherwell’s faint top six hopes.

    Previewing Aberdeen v Motherwell

    Previewing Aberdeen v Motherwell

    Motherwell go to Aberdeen on Wednesday night, knowing a win is needed to keep dreams of a Ladbrokes Premiership top six finish alive.

    Here’s the match previewed.

    The permutations

    It’s simple for Motherwell. Win, and we’ve done our side of things to stay in the top six hunt.

    In Edinburgh, Hibernian must lose to Kilmarnock at Easter Road. If both things happen, Motherwell move to within two points with one game to go.

    The form guide

    Aberdeen’s home form hasn’t been great in 2019. They’ve not won in six league matches at Pittodrie, with their last home win coming on 22 December against Hearts.

    Since then, Celtic, Rangers and Hamilton have taken maximum points back down the road, while Kilmarnock, St Mirren and Livingston have all shared the spoils with the Dons.

    Motherwell have won seven of their last 10 matches. On their travels, however, they are without a win in three, having lost to Celtic and Hibernian, and drawn with Kilmarnock.

    Team news

    Trevor Carson, Craig Tanner, Ross McCormack and Christian Mbulu remain sidelined.
