Michael Beale will be looking for his fourth consecutive win as Rangers manager when his team hosts Motherwell on Wednesday evening.
Although Rangers have overall enjoyed a strong league season, they have fallen behind in the fight for the championship, which led to Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s departure as manager.
Rangers have made a good start under new manager Michael Beale, most recently defeating Ross County 1-0 thanks to a goal from John Lundstram in the first half. Rangers have 42 points after 18 games, placing them second in the league.
They trail Celtic by nine points at the top of the standings.
Motherwell, on the other hand, has had a challenging season following a promising start.
The last time they played, they managed a 2-2 draw with ten-man Kilmarnock. Despite having a numerical advantage, Motherwell blew a two-goal lead in the closing 15 minutes and will be devastated not to have earned all three points. With just 18 points from 17 games, the guests are ninth in the standings.

Rangers vs Motherwell TV channel and live stream
Rangers Vs Motherwell Scottish Premiership clash will be available on Rangers TV.
Rangers will most likely keep Adam Devine at left-back as Borna Barisic recovers from his World Cup exploits with Croatia.
As a result, Alfredo Morelos, Ryan Jack, and James Sands may all be in the running for starting positions.
Hammell must choose whether to give the same players another chance to prove themselves after being furious by Motherwell’s embarrassing loss to Kilmarnock.
If a change is made, Dean Cornelius or Ross Tierney could be added as more fresh legs in the middle.

Rangers 2-0 Motherwell
