Rangers vs Ross County Match Analysis and Prediction

Rangers will be looking to follow up their Champions League playoff victory in midweek by picking up maximum points when they host Ross County at Ibrox for their Scottish Premiership contest on Saturday.

The hosts have picked up 10 points from their opening four league matches this season, while their visitors claimed their first victory of the new season last weekend.

For the first time in 12 years, the Gers will be competiting in the Champions League after securing a 3-2 aggregate victory over PSV Eindhoven in the playoff round.

After playing out a 202 draw in the first leg at Ibrox, Rangers picked up a narrow 1-0 victory in the Netherlands on Wednesday, with Antonio Colak scoring the only goal of the game on the hour mark.

Before preparing for more memorable European nights, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side will turn their attention to Saturday’s encounter with Ross County, whom they have an impressive record against.

Rangers have won 12 of their last 13 league meetings against Ross County, including each of their last six at Ibrox by an aggregate score of 19-4.

After losing each of their opening three Premiership matches of the 2022-23 season, Ross County eventually got back on track when they claimed a narrow 1-0 home victory over newly-promoted Kilmarnock last weekend.

The hosts were reduced to 10 men when Callachan picked up a second yellow card for a deliberate handball in the 81st minute, but they managed to score the winner just five minutes later with substitute Owura Edwards scoring from close range.

Malky Mackay’s side have also struggled in recent visits to Ibrox, losing each of their last three and conceding a total of 13 goals. However, they did pick up a point in a 3-3 draw against Rangers on home soil in January.

Rangers news

Filip Helander, John Souttar and Ben Davies are all sidelined for Rangers through injuries, while attackers Ianis Hagi and Kemar Roofe are also on the treatment table.

Rabbi Matondo, Ryan Jack, Steven Davis and Scott Arfield are all pushing to start after beginning on the bench against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League.

Ross County news

Ross County will be without Jack Baldwin and Callachan due to suspension, while William Akio and Connor Randall are sidelined with a knee injury and a broken leg respectively.

Jordan Tillson is the most likely candidate to replace Callachan, partnering David Cancola in centre-midfield, while Jordan White should come into the starting XI.

Prediction and Odds

Both teams head into Saturday’s contest on a high after securing victories in their most recent matches, but Rangers will be considered strong favourites to win here.

The Gers have comfortably beaten Ross County on home soil in recent years and we expect them come out on top on Saturday.

Odds: 1.78 2.10 2.26
