Rangers v Ross County Betting Tips And Predictions
SPFL Scottish Premiership
Date: 17th September 2016
Rangers were quite frankly lamentable last weekend.
They can’t say it wasn’t coming as most observers were highlighting their defensive frailties for at least a couple of weeks. Things don’t look like improving any time soon. Most importantly they could be drastically worse for this weekend.
Phillipe Senderos is suspended after a red card at Celtic Park. The latest word on Danny Wilson and Rob Kiernan is that they are both doubtful. That would leave Clint Hill as the only recognised centre back from the senior squad.
I haven’t seen much of Hill so I am loathe to prejudge him. But the fact that Warburton has seen fit to put him last in the pecking order behind the other three suggests he doesn’t have much faith in him. Particularly when you consider how woeful Kiernan has been playing and that Senderos hadn’t kicked a ball in anger for months.
We know that he lacks pace and that could present a big problem. There has been a huge gap between the Rangers defence and midfield. Speed merchants have exploited that gap. And Ross County have plenty of pace.
Alex Schalk and Michael Gardyne will run at The Gers defence without fear. Put the ball in the danger zone and Liam Boyce will take chances, mercilessly. He has six goals in five league games this season.
It is still a game I expect Rangers to win. There should be a bounceback from last week’s defeat. The Rangers fans demand it. The Staggies are missing Jay McElevey in defence after his own red card last weekend.
And they are susceptible in defence themselves. If Rangers click they ought to grab a couple of goals. But they need to be wary at the other end. Whomever fills the centre half roles.
