Rangers will welcome Motherwell to the Ibrox Stadium for a matchday six fixture in the Scottish Premiership.

The home side come into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Lyon at the same ground in the Europa League on Thursday. Prior to that, they secured a 2-1 away victory over St. Johnstone last weekend with Kemar Roofe and James Tavernier helping them secure a comeback victory.

Motherwell posted a routine 2-0 home win over Aberdeen last Saturday. Kevin van Veen and Juhani Ojala scored in either half to help the Dossers secure all three points.

That victory helped them climb to fourth place in the table with 10 points garnered from five matches. Rangers still lead the way atop the standings and have picked up 12 points from five games.
