Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
After dropping two points in a 2-2 draw with Hibernian, Rangers will be looking to return to winning ways in the Scotland Premier League when they take on Motherwell at Fir Park. Steven Gerrard’s men are only one point clear of second-placed Celtic ahead of Matchday 9, meaning that they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Well. Alfredo Morelos, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late, will be the man to watch in the away team.
Motherwell, on the other hand, did well to shock Aberdeen at Pittodrie Stadium, with the team crushing the Dons 3-0 at the weekend. The hosts are brimming with confidence ahead of Saturday’s clash, and given Rangers’ anything but brilliant display in the draw with the Hibs, share of spoils is on the horizon at Fir Park. A man to watch in the home team will be Christopher Long, who opened his goal-scoring account against Aberdeen.
Highlighted Player (Allan Campbell):
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, on July 4, 1998, Allan Campbell is a Scottish footballer who plays for Motherwell. Campbell has been playing for the Steelmen since 2008 when he was a part of the Motherwell youth team.
The Scottish midfielder made his Premier League debut on October 29, 2016, in a 4-1 win over Ross County, and he scored his first goal in the Scottish top flight in a 4-2 victory over Inverness on April 15, 2017. Allan Campbell has 19 caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the Scotland senior team. His primary position is a defensive midfielder, but he is used as a central midfielder as well.
The Scottish footballer wears the number 6 shirt at Motherwell. In his youth days, Allan Campbell attended All Saints Roman Catholic Secondary School in Glasgow. He joined Motherwell football academy at the age of 10.
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.
