Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win over St Johnstone, Rangers moved one step closer to regaining the Scotland Premiership trophy. The Gers are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in the national championship, and we are positive that Steven Gerrard will once again field the best possible starting XI. Alfredos Morelos is serving the second of his three-match ban, while Katic and Arfield remain in the recovery room.
Anyhow, away win should be considered regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting lineup. Hamilton, on the other hand, failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to Celtic and Ross County, and seeing that they are stuck at the bottom of the table, we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders. In the first half of the season Rangers crushed Hamilton 8-0, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Steven Gerrard’s men.

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.
