Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Against all odds Rangers, suffered a loss in their last league fixture, with Hamilton Academical ruining their title hopes. The Gers are 13 points behind league leaders Celtic ahead of Matchday 30, and, no doubt, they head into Sunday’s football match against Ross County with the lack of confidence. Alfredo Morelos, who apologized for letting down club and fans, is likely to lead the line for the visitors against Ross County.
The hosts, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems in a 4-1 loss at Motherwell, which is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on over 2.5 goals. A lively contest is on the cards at Global Energy Stadium, but the visitors are closer to picking up all three points from the match than the hosts. You should bear in mind that Rangers are eyeing their sixth consecutive win over Ross County in the national championship.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Fraser):
Marcus Fraser is a Scottish footballer who plays for Ross County as a defender. Fraser is a product of Celtic football school, but he made no more than one appearance for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League. He played his only game for the Scottish giants in a 3-1 win at Inverness on February 9, 2013.
After ending his loan spell with Cowdenbeath, Marcus Fraser signed a deal with Ross County in 2015. Over the years, the defender has established himself as a first-team regular with the Staggies, making 26 appearances in the Scottish top flight last term.
Speaking of his international career, Fraser has five caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. His main position on the field is a right-back, but he is capable of producing good performances as a centre-back as well. Marcus Fraser was born in Bishopbriggs, Scotland, on June 23, 1994.
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.
