Rangers v Motherwell Betting Tips And Predictions
SPFL Scottish Premiership
Date: 20th August 2016
Rangers have signalled clear intention with their transfer dealings this week.
Joleon Lescott looks likely to sign on the dotted line. That will be a boost to a beleaguered defence. Joe Garner is also close to agreeing a deal to add more firepower up front. Phillipe Senderos is on trial, too, but the Lescott signing could put pay to his chances.
After Motherwell’s Lanarkshire rivals, Hamilton Academical, spoiled the Rangers party on the opening day The Gers will be keen to get a home win. Martyn Waghorn remains on the sidelines so Kenny Miller is likely to start.
Miller scored in last week’s Jekyll and Hyde performance at Dundee. An excellent first half was undone by a moment of poor defending. The second half didn’t meet the standard set in the first. If Craig Thomson were card happy the points might have been lost.
But the points went back down the road. Now Rangers are sitting top of the Scottish Premiership after the first two games. With all of Aberdeen, Hearts, St Johnstone and Celtic playing each other in the first set of games there is every chance they can stay there. For the time being at least.
Meanwhile Motherwell will still have the 5-0 trouncing at Celtic Park playing on their minds. They followed that up by throwing away a one goal lead at home to St Johnstone. Mark McGhee has to stop the rot. Despite his bravado he will have hoped for an easier destination than Ibrox.
Their main goal threat, Louis Moult, remains on the sidelines through injury. But they may have some success on the left wing. If the Rangers right flank gets exposed, which it is prone to doing, Marvin Johnson can turn defence into attack in an instant.
But apart from that outlet there is little about Motherwell to offer Rangers too much difficulty.
