After securing a lead in the Scottish Premiership, Rangers will be playing host to side Kilmarnock. With an unbeaten record steaming up, we expect a lot of action this weekend. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 5 pm.
Kilmarnock started their season campaign with a 1-1 draw to title defenders Celtic. A penalty was enough to hold off the attacking threat for the side. However, Kilmarnock is yet to register a win in the season.
Steven Gerrard is having an impressive at the helm of the Scottish Premiership. The side recorded three back to back wins without conceding in any games. However, last weekend was a lackluster display against a low lying side Livingston.
The side had to scrap to share spoils with the side. Given their opponents had a fair share of losses while conceding seven goals since the season-opening. The Glasgow giants will be looking to redeem themselves this weekend against a weaker Kilmarnock.
The prolific striker Alfredo Morelos proved to be the heart of the side attacking threat. However, the fall of Ianis Hagi continues to be a worry for Gerrard. The skipper is yet to net or assist since the season opener.
Kilmarnock’s last outing saw the side struggle with ten men on the pitch ending in a 2-1 defeat to side St. Johnstone.
