news for huge Premiership clash
RANGERS will be looking to make it four wins from four under Michael Beale when they welcome Motherwell to Ibrox.
The Light Blues will be looking to make sure – at worst – they go into the New Year’s Old Firm clash with the nine-point gap to Celtic still intact.
Steven Hammell’s side though will have their own top six ambitions to take care of and continuing the 100 per-cent record under Beale will not be straightforward for the Light Blues.
Rangers have picked up results, but few plaudits from recent performances as they maintain chase with Celtic at the top of the table.
John Lundstram insists they don’t pay attention to the nine-point gap in the standings and just go out seeking another three each week.
Motherwell could do with some points of their own sitting six points off the top six and five from the bottom of the league.
Their record at Ibrox of late isn’t bad – they took two points from two visits to Edmiston Drive last season and have scored on all but one visits to Ibrox in the past 10 years.

Michael Beale has had an injury crisis to contend with since he took over at Ibrox.
His latest blow came when Steven Davis’ knee scan results showed a serious injury which rules the veteran out for the rest of the season – and the remaining months of his current contract.
Fellow midfielder Glen Kamara has also been in need of an op recently but has played through the pain barrier like a number of his team-mates.
James Tavernier has been suffering flu-like symptoms while sickness ruled Allan McGregor out from the win against Ross County.
In better news Ben Davies returned against the Staggies and Beale also anticipates returns for Antonio Colak and Kemar Roofe against the Steelmen, while Borna Barisic is also due back from his World Cup break, this week.
Well came through largely unscathed in a disappointing 2-2 draw against Kilmarnock last week which saw Kevin van Veen return to the scoresheet but Killie comeback to take a point.
Rangers 2/9 (bet365, Boylesports, William Hill)
Draw 11/2 (bet365, PaddyPower)
Motherwell 12/1 (McBookie, bet365, William Hill, Boylesports)
All prices correct as at 3pm on December 26.
What they said
Michael Beale (following the 1-0 win over Ross County)
“We know we are a work in progress and the most important thing is to keep winning.
“I’ve come into a group that’s a bit quiet around the training ground and a little quiet in the dressing room.
“So I know everything is not fantastic in terms of the feeling.
“All we can do is play games and win. We have come away to Pittodrie and got a big win and come here and won.
“Sometimes you have to get three points and get out.
“We look forward to Motherwell on the 28th now.”
“We go out to win every game, and if that gets us closer to reducing the nine-point deficit then that is great.
“But we are concentrating on ourselves at the minute, and trying to implement the gaffer’s style and getting better, that is really all we are trying to do.
“If that comes with reducing the deficit then great.”
Steven Hammell (following the 2-2 draw vs Killie)
“I don’t want to talk about positives about a game we should have won.
“It’s happened a couple of times this season when we’ve lost momentum when the opposition has a man sent off.
“It feels worse than a defeat to come away with a point after all the work that we put in.
“We’ve got a lot of work to do to put this right now. We need to be more professional and see these games over the line.
“The sloppiness of the goals we conceded was unacceptable.
“We did what we wanted in the first half and brought a lot of our identity into it. It’s just the end product that was lacking.”
