RANGERS launch their league campaign tonight an even shorter price than they were to lift the title last season.
Backers ripped up slips early as they were never in the hunt thanks to a rampant Hearts side.
It should be a different story this season and two cup matches into Mark Warburton’s reign it looks like the ex-Brentford boss will be a good appointment.
He’s built his own team and nine goals in two outings against Hibs and Peterhead have pleased fans who suffered but not in silence last term.
An opener against St Mirren will be a test of the Ibrox side’s credentials and I expect them to pass it with flying colours. It could be a season of transition for third favourites Saints as they adapt to like in the Championship and a new boss in Ian Murray.
Rangers have been cut to a best 1-2 at Betway to lift the title while Saints are 12-1 at Ladbrokes.
To win tonight Gers are no bigger than 13-20 at McBookie with the Buddies 9-2 at William Hill and Ladbrokes and a draw 3-1 with McBookie.
After seeing 11 goals in Warburton’s first two matches I’d consider over 2.5 goals at 31-40 with McBookie or even over 3.5 at 2-1 with McBookie and Hills – although Saints don’t possess a huge goal threat and could struggle to hit the target. Gers -1 looks big at 7-4 with Hills and McBookie.
All nine of Rangers’ goals have come after the 40-minute mark so it’s worth looking at second half to be highest scoring at 19-20 with William Hill.
Martyn Waghorn is Gers’ main man up front and is 9-2 at McBookie and Hills to score first. Defender James Tavernier has netted in the first two games and is 16-5 with boylesports to net at any time.
