Rangers, despite a slow start v Motherwell, were ultimately able to absolutely throttle the Fir Park side, who currently lie a healthy 5th in the table.

With Gary Mac eager for the side to go ‘all guns blazing’ on Ross County, who lie bottom with just one win, the stage should be set for a genuine cricket score tomorrow.

County have shipped 22 goals, scoring 15, and so their stats, despite being rooted to the basement, aren’t actually that bad. Indeed they’ve scored more than four other sides and are joint at 15 with another three, so they’re really not doing as badly as their position suggests.

But a wounded Rangers off the back of a poor result in Denmark should really show up and give them a lesson.

We do expect full throttle, and we expect a lot of our ‘slower’ players not to feature.

We expect rests for McGregor, Davis, Barisic, Kamara and one or two others and hungry stars like Patterson, McCrorie (it’ll be McLaughlin as usual), Bassey, Lundstram, Aribo, Arfield et al to heavily feature. Ryan Kent is ready to start.

It should see a serious hike in energy level over the stale displays we’ve had of late, Fir Park aside, and Rangers fans want to see a lot of goals and a lot of effort.

The return of Kent and Arfield starting should help a lot with the guile, and we hope to see a much livelier midfield and attack than the poor efforts we’ve mostly had lately.

Bring it on!
