Rangers’ season continues to get better and better, with a hard-fought win over Standard Liege on Thursday meaning they’ve qualified for the knockouts with a game to spare.
Moreover, the three away goals they managed at Benfica ensures they’ll take first place so as long as they beat Lech Poznan on matchday six.
The Gers are now unbeaten in 23 outings, with 15 of their 19 victories over this period seeing them triumph by at least two clear goals. In fact, 13 of the past 15 have in ended in a win, and it’s even more stark domestically where the clean sheets are racking up.
Rangers To Win Top Nil
Steven Gerrard’s side have won a massive 14 of 16 unbeaten domestic matches this season, registering 14 clean sheets in the process, with the win to nil landing on 13 occasions.
The last three have produced an 8-0 thumping of Hamilton, in addition to 4-0 beatings of Aberdeen and Falkirk, as the team looks in great shape all over the pitch.
Ross County shouldn’t be underestimated after taking down Celtic 2-0 last weekend in the League Cup, even if Neil Lennon’s men are lurching from one disaster to another at present.
Stuart Kettlewell’s side have actually won three of their last four now, though the other two victories came over lower division outfits Elgin City and Stirling Albion, so we wouldn’t read too much into those wins.
In the league alone, the Staggies have extracted maximum points from just one of their past 13 matches, with eight of these ending in defeat.
They’ve failed to score more than once in any of their last 12, while they’ve drawn a blank in each of their four meetings with top-four outfits Rangers, Celtic, Aberdeen and Hibernian this season.
Ross County have actually lost without scoring in all four head to heads with Rangers since the start of last season, with the Gers scoring nine times, as they won by at least two clear goals in all but one of these meetings.
The hosts have also failed to score in five of their past seven defeats recently, so the away win to nil makes total sense.
James Tavernier To Score Anytime
Rangers have a number of potential goalscorers but it’s hard to overlook captain James Tavernier, with as many as five players at shorter prices to register than the right-back.
Always reliable from the spot this season, he added another from 12 yards midweek to take his tally for the campaign to 15 from 24 appearances, while he’s found the net at least once in eight of Rangers’ past 10 league outings.
Further, the 10 penalties Ross County have conceded this term is a joint-high alongside Aberdeen, with nine of those finding the target.
