Rangers lie in wait for Motherwell at Ibrox on Sunday in the Ladbrokes Premiership, as they return to league action after facing Porto in Europe on Thursday night.
Here’s the lowdown on our opponents.
The story so far
Sitting joint top of the Premiership with Celtic, Steven Gerrard’s side are second solely on the count of scoring one goal less than Celtic. They are also in the semi-finals of the Betfred Cup, where they will face Hearts on 3 November.
In Europe, they’ve won seven from 11 UEFA Europa League matches and drawn three, with the latest draw coming in an impressive 1-1 draw at Porto on Thursday night.
With seven league wins from nine, Gerrard’s men are in ominous form.
In all competitions, they’ve won nine of their last 10 matches at Ibrox, with their only blip coming in the 2-0 derby loss to Celtic in September.
Their last domestic result was a 1-1 draw at Hearts last weekend.
How they shaped up last time
Three to watch
An integral part of the Rangers defence, Croatian internationalist Nikola Katic has built on the momentum from his strong finish to the 2018-19 season with some excellent displays at the beginning of the new campaign.
Katic was recently rewarded with an extended contract until the summer of 2023 and speaking afterwards Gers boss Steven Gerrard hailed the 23-year-old as a player willing to put his body on the line for the cause.
After having to watch on from the bench as Rangers earned a point against Porto on Thursday, Katic will be determined to return to the starting-eleven as the Ibrox side return their attentions to domestic matters against ‘Well.
Another player celebrating a new deal at Ibrox is Scotland midfielder Ryan Jack, who this week put pen to paper on a contract extension that will see him remain with Rangers until 2023.
A leader in the middle of the park, Jack is closing in on 100 appearances in light blue after joining the club from Aberdeen in the summer of 2017 and has almost been a mainstay in the team since the arrival of Steven Gerrard one year later.
Jack is second in the Scottish Premiership when it comes to progressive passing accuracy and he averages more attempted passes than any other player in the league.
On the back of scoring yet another goal in the Europa League, the hype surrounding Alfredo Morelos has rarely been higher.
The Colombian took his goal brilliantly midweek and has been in fantastic form so far this season – netting 16 times in 21 appearances.
‘Well boss Stephen Robinson will be well aware of the importance of how important shutting out Morelos will be if his side are to upset the odds and leave Govan with a result on Sunday. The striker has scored on both occasions he has come up against Motherwell at Ibrox and will be determined to put the Steelmen to the sword again when the teams clash on Sunday.
