Rangers team news: Gerrard favourite doubtful vs Ross County, versatile man could feature

An inconsistent Glasgow Rangers outfit will face off against struggling Ross County in a Scottish Premiership clash at the Global Energy Stadium on Sunday.

The Gers enter the game 16 points adrift of league leaders Celtic.

Rangers will probably not win the Scottish top flight this season though they will be aiming for nothing less than victory on Sunday in order to close the gap.

Victory would also give their fans something to cheer about following a frustrating last few months on the domestic front, which has seen the Ibrox giants fall from being serious title contenders to having to settle for second.

Rangers captain James Tavernier is a doubt for the game after having been injured during the Glasgow team’s defeat against Hamilton, according to BBC Sport.   

The report added that Filip Helander and Matt Polster have returned to training, though the latter is the only one from the duo who has a chance of featuring against Ross County.  

Gers midfielder Scott Arfield will remain out of action due to a hamstring injury.

Rangers have been unpredictable recently and County will be looking to exploit their vulnerabilities at this point in time.

However, Rangers do have a better side on paper and will head into the clash as favourites.  

Ross County have not won any of their previous eight top-flight encounters against Rangers.

To date, the Gers remain the only side whom they have not yet defeated since they first played in the top flight in 2012.

The teams last met in a league game at the Ibrox Stadium in January with Rangers winning 2-0.

Steven Gerrard will hope that a morale-boosting victory will stand the Gers in good stead, with a glamour Europa League tie against Bayer Leverkusen and the Old Firm Derby against Celtic to play in the next week.
