Rangers are within touching distance of top spot in the Scottish Premiership and can go into first place if they reign supreme over Motherwell on Sunday afternoon, just as long as Celtic fall to a defeat to Livingston.

Motherwell vs Rangers prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Rangers to win 3-0

  • An excellent run of form from Rangers now sees the club on a 16-game winning run, including a six-game win streak right now
  • Rangers defeated Motherwell 1-0 back in September

We have also decided to back Rangers because of how they will be aware that a win could potentially take them to the top of the Scottish Premiership, should Celtic lose to Livingston – the Old Firm will also take place six days after this game.

It's been a terrible season for Motherwell who failed to score again last weekend. Such a run now puts them on just 20 goals in 18 games, which is 15 fewer than Rangers' tally of 35. The home side now sit down in 11th and with eight wins on the board – only Livingston just below them in last place have lost more. What’s more, Motherwell failed to score in the previous meeting between these two that saw Rangers win 1-0 at Ibrox.

Motherwell vs Rangers prediction – Other tips

Correct Score: 3-0

  • Rangers have netted 35 goals this season and have an astonishing defensive record of just eight goals let in – no team across all of the UK's professional divisions have a better
  • Rangers won the reverse fixture and have won by two or more goals in eight times during their 16-game unbeaten run

James Tavernier to score

  • As the top scorer for Rangers once more, Tavernier scored yet again from the penalty spot during the week against St Johnstone
  • The Gers’ captain now has nine goals in the Scottish Premiership already and is on penalty and free kick duty

Motherwell vs Rangers Lineups

Motherwell

Calum Butcher is a doubt for this game and will face a late fitness test as a result. Dan Casey is out until early January for Motherwell, and he will be joined by Pape Souare and Lennon Miller.

Predicted Lineup: Kelly (GK), Blaney, Mugabi, O'Donnell, Gent, Paton, Zdravkovski, Slattery, Spencer, Spittal, Biereth

Rangers

Despite the form, Rangers still have injuries to deal with. Danilo Pereira, Thomas Lawrence, Ryan Jack, Sean Davis and Nicolas Raskin won’t feature until closer to 2024 or early January. Jose Cifuentes can return after his red card against Dundee United.

Predicted Lineup: Butland (GK), Tavernier, Goldson, Balogun, Barisic, Lundstram, Sterling, McCausland, Cantwell, Sima, Dessers

*Lineups are usually announced 1hr before kick-off

Player to Watch: James Tavernier

Another week has passed which means another goal from James Tavernier. 

This has put the Englishman well on his way to bettering his tally of 16 goals in the Scottish Premiership last season, as Tavernier now has nine in the league alone. 

The right-back also bagged three in three games in the Scottish League Cup final, including the winning goal in the 1-0 victory over Aberdeen in the final last weekend. Tavernier also scored in the win over St Johnstone during the week, meaning he has now scored in the last three games on the domestic front.
