Predicted 4-3-3 Rangers Lineup Vs Motherwell: Can The Gers Make It Two In A Row?

Rangers did not have the best result to mark their comeback to the top tier as they had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Hamilton Academical. However, 2-1 win in the second game against Dundee must have boosted the morale of the squad. In between the two Premiership games, Rangers had an emphatic 5-0 win over Kilmarnock. Unbeaten in their seven games in all competitions this season (6 wins, 1 draw), Rangers are in perfect shape while approaching their third Premiership game of the season hosting Motherwell at Ibrox on Saturday, 20th August.

Rangers started their season with a 2-0 win over Motherwell in the League Cup and will be looking for a similar outcome this time as well. Motherwell were in decent form before their 5-0 hammering at the hands of Celtic. A 1-2 loss against St. Johnstone last weekend added to their woes. Rangers are clear favourites for the game and we can expect a one-sided affair.

Here is the predicted Rangers lineup against Motherwell

Defence

Wes Foderingham is likely to start between the sticks ahead of Matt Gilks. Veteran Clint Hill is likely to make the bench only now that Danny Wilson is fit. Rob Kiernan and Danny Wilson are likely to pair up at the heart of the Rangers defence. Rangers’ two bombarding full-backs James Tavernier and skipper Lee Wallace are obvious choices in the two full-back positions.

Midfield

We have seen Warburton opting for a rotation in midfield trio among Andy Halliday, Jordan Rossiter, Joey Barton and Niko Kranjcar. All four midfielders have largely impressed so far this season as Rangers dominated the midfield area in each game. Halliday is likely to start against Motherwell in defensive midfield while Barton and Kranjcar are likely to start as the two advanced midfielders. Jordan Rossiter will definitely get some time off the bench.

Attack

Martyn Waghorn will miss the game with a hamstring injury. However, Rangers did not find it hard to find the back of the net even with their first-choice striker injured largely thanks to Kenny Miller who lives up to the example that age is just a number if you have the quality. The 36-year-old will spearhead Rangers’ attack against Motherwell while Harry Forrester and Barrie McKay will start on the two flanks.
