It is a battle of top against bottom in the Scottish Premier League on Sunday, as Rangers host Hamilton Academical at Ibrox.

Steven Gerrard's side threw away a 3-1 lead against Benfica in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday, and will no doubt be smarting from that result.

Against ten men, Gerrard would have expected his side to keep the lead safe through the final 15 minutes of the game, but they conceded goals to Rafa Silva and Darwin Nunez to share the points with the Portuguese giants.

Rangers are top of the league in Scotland though, and are on an excellent winning run. Against the bottom team in the division, who have only accumulated seven points in 11 games so far, Gerrard will expect his side to win without too many hassles.

Rangers vs Hamilton Academical Head-to-Head

Hamilton Academical have beaten Rangers only once in their history, which was at Ibrox in November 2017, when they won 2-0.

In the first match between the two sides this season, Rangers cruised to a comfortable 2-0 away win. Ianis Hagi and James Tavernier were the goal-scorers on that day for Rangers.
