Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Thanks to a thrilling 4-0 win over Ross County, Rangers cemented top position in the Premiership standings. The Gers are on the right track to put an end to Celtic’s dominance in Scotland football, but the league leaders can’t afford any complacency in upcoming fixtures. Steven Gerrard’s troops are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Dundee United, and seeing that the former Liverpool captain can count on key players for Sunday’s clash, away win should be considered.
The Terrors, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Livingston, and we do not believe that they are capable of shocking the title-chasing side. When the two teams met at Ibrox Stadium earlier in the process, Rangers recorded a routine 4-0 win over Dundee United, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Calum Butcher):
Calum Butcher is an English midfielder, who was born in Rochford on February 26, 1991. Butcher played for the youth teams of Ipswich Town, Southend United and Tottenham Hotspur and despite being a Spurs player he did not see any game action at senior level during his spell with the White Hart Lane outfit.
The 185-cm-tall midfielder, though, was named as a substitute for Spurs in a 1-1 draw with Shakhstar Donetsk in the UEFA cup back in 2009. Butcher played for the likes of Barnet (loan), Hjorring, Hayes & Yeading United, Dundee United and Burton Albion in the past before joining Millwall on August 25, 2016. He made his debut for the Lions two days after signing for the club, coming as a substitute in a 3-1 victory over Chesterfield.
Butcher scored his first goal for Milwall against Northampton on October 15, 2016. It has to be noted that the midfielder scored two goals in 32 appearances for the Lions in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Team (Rangers):
Glasgow Rangers are one of the two synonyms for Scottish Football. Glasgow Rangers were founded back in 1872 and they have been playing an important role in the Scottish top flight ever since. The Gers won their 54th Scottish Premier League title in the 2010/2011 season, but winning of European Cup Winners’ Cup trophy in 1972 is considered the club’s biggest success.
Glasgow Rangers defeated Dynamo Moscow in the final of the competition, with the likes of Stein and Johnston (two goals) scoring for the Scottish side. Celtic are considered the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two teams meet in the Old Firm derby. The likes of Paul Gascoigne, David Weir, Stefan Klos, Chris Boyd, Ian Durrant and Kenny Miller are some of Rangers’ former notable players.
It has to be noted that the Gers welcome their rivals at Ibrox Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 50,817. Rangers’ support is largely drawn from the Protestant Unionist community.
