Filip Helander (Knee Surgery), Ryan Jack (Fitness) and Nnamdi Ofoborh (Heart Condition) will not be taking part for Rangers manager Steven Gerrard.
Team News: Motherwell
Due to a completely healthy squad to pick from, the Motherwell boss Graham Alexander has no fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this match.
In this game, Rangers have it within them to see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
In contrast, Motherwell could well find it tough to score a goal of their own but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be managing to get on the scoresheet.
We reckon that it will be a 3-1 margin for Rangers when the full-time whistle blows.
