Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
All eyes will be on Easter Road when Hibernian and Rangers go head to head in the Premiership round 26. The Hibs aim to make amends for the heavy League Cup defeat (0-3) to St. Johnstone, but given their poor form in 2021, home win should not be considered. All Joe Newell, Ofir Marciano, Kyle Magennis, Sean Mackie, and Scott Allan are sidelined with injuries, which is yet another reason why we are not tempted to put our money on the home side.
The Gers, on the other hand, aim to build on a routine 5-0 win over Ross County. Rangers are on the right track to regain the Premier League trophy, and they should take advantage of Hibernian’s current form. Even though the likes of Arfield, Edmundson, and Katic are all out of contention through injuries, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the league leaders.
Highlighted Player (Jackson Irvine):
Romell Quioto is a pacey winger who plays for both Houston Dynamo and the Honduras national football team. Quioto was born in Balfate (Honduras) on August 9, 1991 and he played for Union Ajax during his youth career. The Honduras striker started his senior career at Vida and it has to be noted that he scored 20 goals in 77 appearances in the league for the club.
In 2012 he was sent on loan to Polish club Wisla Krakow, but he played no more than nine games for The White Star in Ekstraklasa. Romell Quioto then took a step forward in his career as he signed a contract with famous Honduras club Olimpia. After scoring 38 goals in 96 league fixtures for the capital club the 180-cm-tall attacker decided to taste MLS football.
Quioto moved to Houston Dynamo in December, 2016 and he has been playing for the Major League Soccer club ever since. Speaking of his international debut, Romell Quioto received his first call-up for Honduras on February 29, 2012 for a friendly game against Ecuador.
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.
