A storm is potentially brewing just in time for this Rangers v Raith Rovers betting preview to be published. Raith have requested that Scottish football’s compliance officer look into the legitimacy of Ryan Hardie’s release from the Scotland U19 squad.

The youngster has made one substitute appearance for Rangers this season. David Weir is accused of requesting he does not take part in the U19s squad’s second game of the week against Bulgaria.

Raith are unhappy with this as they have a first team regular, Craig Wighton, remaining on international duty. While citing a breach of article 82.1 Raith are awaiting a response from the SFA.

In the meantime the distraction shouldn’t affect the outcome of the match which should see Rangers continue their fine start to the season. That start has seen them win all but the home game against Hibs by at least two goals.

With Raith losing both their Championship away matches to Hibs and Falkirk without scoring a goal a similiar outcome can be expected.

Raith have played four away matches this season. But for a 0-1 victory away to struggling Cowdenbeath they’ve lost them all without scoring.

The way this Rangers team are playing a minimum of a two goal victory looks as likely as any outcome on the day. For this Rangers v Raith Rovers betting preview backing the home side on the Asian Handicap market looks to be the way to go.

Raith Rovers have signed former Rangers striker Jon Daly and he should bring some threat up top. But new manager Ray McKinnon will be looking to the next away game at Saint Mirren as a more realistic hope of getting points.

You can back Rangers -2 Asian Handicap at 1.85 with bet365 and that looks like a virtually guaranteed return. Bearing in mind that a two goal victory will see the stake returned it is worth a try to win with a three goal victory or more not out of the question.

The price has drifted a little after opening at 1.8(4/5) and that drift may continue a little more. It’s unlikely to get near evens but the closer it does get the more backable it becomes.

The days of James Tavernier at 20/1 to score the first goal are long gone with bet365 as low as 6/1. That was the price Coral offered for him to score anytime at the weekend. The best available on that outcome now is 4.33(100/30).

You’ll get more value on Lee Wallace at 20/1 with William Hill to open the scoring.
