Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
After rolling over St. Mirren 4-0, Rangers will look to put an extra pressure on league leaders Celtic when they face Motherwell in the Premiership round 11. The Gers aim to extend their winning run to four games, and you should bear in mind that they defeated the Well in five of their last six encounters at Fir Park. All John Souttar, Tom Lawrence, Filip Helander, and Nnamdi Ofoborh should miss out with injuries for the visiting side, while summer signing Antonio Colak is likely to keep his place in the starting XI.
The Well, on the other hand, head into the match with a severely-weakened squad. Connor Shields is banned for Sunday’s game, while fellow Blair Spittal has joined Rolando Aarons, Jake Carroll, and Nathan McGinley in the recovery room. Ross Tierney is likely to replace Spittal in the starting XI.
Highlighted Player (Josh Morris):
Josh Morris is a product of Blackburn Rovers football school who plays for Fleetwood Town in the League One. Morris’ main position is left midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both left-back and central midfielder as well.
The English footballer started his senior career at Blackburn Rovers and he played for the likes of Yeovil Town, Rotherham United, Carlisle United and Fleetwood Town on loan before moving to Bradford City in the summer of 2015. Josh Morris, though, found his best form at Scunthorpe United, scoring 35 goals in 107 appearances for the club in the league.
Before the start of the 2018/2019 League One season Morris re-joined Fleetwood Town, signing a two-year contract with the Fishermen. Josh Morris scored his first goal of the season in a 3-1 win over Peterborough United at Weston Homes Stadium. His contract with Fleetwood Town should expire on June 30, 2021.
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.
