History of the Glasgow Rangers v Motherwell fixture

Rangers prepare to entertain Motherwell at Ibrox Stadium on Saturday evening, aiming to maintain a near-perfect record against their opponents. The The Gers have won 97 of the 120 matches the two teams have contested.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Ibrox Stadium was less than a year ago, in April 2003, as the The Gers squeezed past their rivals by a scoreline of 4-3 in a Scottish F.A. Cup match.

Recent respective form guides

Glasgow Rangers have an excellent home record, winning five and losing just one of the last six games. These high-scoring games have yielded a total of 14 goals for the The Gers, with 6 goals against.

The The 'Well have had a decent run of form away from home recently, coming away with three points on 3 occassions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. Just 7 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 3 have been let in at the wrong end.

Rangers are just outside the promotion places, in 2nd, having taken 44 points from 19 games. Motherwell's 24 points from 19 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.
