Runaway Scottish Premier League leaders Rangers travel to Fir Park to face Motherwell on Sunday.

Rangers currently have a 21-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premier League. However, Celtic, who are second, have played three games fewer.

Last weekend, Rangers further extended their lead at the top of the league. They beat 10-man Aberdeen 2-1 away at Pittodrie.

Alfredo Morelos scored twice after Ryan Hedges was sent off for Aberdeen. Even though Matty Kennedy pulled one back for Aberdeen, Rangers held on for their 21st league win of the season.

The gravity of Motherwell's task on Sunday is illustrated by the fact that Rangers have not lost a single point in the league for almost four months. It has been an utterly-dominant season from Steven Gerrard's side.

Meanwhile, Motherwell are struggling. They are in 10th place, and haven't won a league game since late October. Last weekend, they held St. Mirren to a 1-1 draw away from home. However, they are still just a point above bottom club Ross County.
