RANGERS have already lost more league games than last season and in two domestic outings have done nothing to justify their billing as hot favourites to win the Championship.

The only price that's fallen as far as the Ibrox side are concerned is Ally McCoist's odds to win the sack race – and he is now 4-1 at McBookie.

Rangers struggled past 10-man Hibs after extra time in the Petrofac Training Cup then crashed in their league opener to Hearts.

On the evidence of those two matches which I can't back McCoist's side at a best 3-4 with McBookie at Falkirk tonight. The Bairns are 7-2 at the likes of William Hill and Ladbrokes while the draw pays 3-1 at Hills.

It's always a risk backing against either side of the Old Firm because on paper they are stronger than the opposition and can spark to life at any time. So while Rangers have been unimpressive so far the best bet could be Falkirk not to lose (double chance) at 11-10 with Ladbrokes.

They went down at home to Rangers in the Scottish Cup last season but a sending off changed the course of that match.
The Bairns defended badly in drawing 2-2 with Cowdenbeath at the weekend and that's a worry but if they take the game to their more illustrious opponents they can cause them trouble.

Kris Boyd and Kenny Miller are of course first-scorer favourites but haven't had a sniff this season while Nicky Law, who has netted in both games, is a best 10-1 at Coral to break the deadlock.

So Rangers' best hope of a goal could come from a set-piece through either Lee McCulloch or Bilel Mohsni and I'm taking a chance on the returning Mohsni to net at any time at 23-4 with 888sport after serving a two-match ban for his pre-season red card at Derby.

Rory Loy is the Bairns' dangerman with three goals in two games this season and is 15-2 with McBookie to hit the opener and 23-10 to score at any time.

    With Bilel Mohsni available after suspension, if he plays then he is overpriced with 888 Sport. He is generally available at between odds of 9/1 and 12/1 to score first goal and around 5/2 and 3/1 to score anytime. I have no idea why 888 Sport have decided to give odds of 26/1 for Mohsni to score first goal and 11/1 for anytime. These are crazy prices. The 6ft 3 defender scored 10 goals in 28 matches last season and is always going to be a threat with set pieces. If Mohsni doesn’t start then 888 will refund stakes (in their rules). Stakes will also be refunded should he come on after the first goal has been scored. My advice would be to back the guy now cos if he’s confirmed in the team line up his price will tumble. Rory Loy is also a decent price at 11/4 with Betfred to score anytime. Coral offer the same bet at 6/4.

    Recommended Bets

    Bilel Mohsni First Goalscorer @ 26/1
    Bilel Mohsni to score anytime @ 11/1
    Rory Loy to score anytime @ 11/4

    Good luck everyone.

  2. Chris Guy 8 years ago

    Paul just noticed Mohsni has been cut to 23/4. I was luck enough to have backed him at 26/1 first goal and 11/1 anytime. 11/1 is a huge price so I hope he scores. After his suspension I think he will be out to prove a point but according to yesterday’s Daily Record he is every sorry for his red card and feels as though he will have to work his way back into the team. I think McCoist will have no option but to play him. On the back of a defeat to Hearts, Rangers will want to get back to winning ways and McCoist knows he will be a goal threat. Also Loy to score anytime is 11/4 with Betfred.

      Chris, he always has a chance from set-pieces and yes 11-1 is big. Him and van Dijk should give us a run this season.

  3. Ian Lindsay 8 years ago

    what about btts to score mr f i think its got a big chance at 4/5 with bet365

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      Ian, if Rangers get their act together. Need to get Boyd and Miller involved but as you say not a bad shout.

  4. Ian Lindsay 8 years ago

    Yes going to go for it mr f feel really confident on it.

  5. Kingsley 8 years ago

    Rangers will beat falkirk..Am backing them to win

  6. Tony 8 years ago

    Rangers have the biggest squad the best players and also players that have been over the course before rangers will win tonight be crowned champions at the end of the season by about 10 points 2-1 rangers

    • raaljaca 8 years ago

      And the players that got humped by the Jambo’s ;)

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      Tony, I’ve already Rangers could win tonight but to say they “will” win suggests you didn’t see their games against Hibs and Hearts. I was shocked by how poorly they played and while they’ve got the squad they need to be tactically better.

  7. andy 8 years ago

    Rangers wont win by 10 points, it will be a very tight league. Falkirk or draw for me against a questionable rangers defence

  8. Chris Guy 8 years ago

    Tony I think Rangers will be lucky to win the league and if they do it certainly won’t be by 10 points.

  9. Tony 8 years ago

    Guys once rangers click into place and Boyd and Miller start scoring all will come good wait an c.hearts wir good 2nd half ral your boys will be runners up mate

  10. andy 8 years ago

    We could be wrong Tony just have to wait and c, i just feel a young and decent Falkirk team are going to be up nearer the top end of the table, i feel certain players in the rangers team should not be first picks in the pecking order, i reckon Boyd will score more goals than Millar also.

  11. Tony 8 years ago

    Andy falkirk prob will be thier. That’s all they will be along with hearts an hibs.some aren’t performing but it will all come good tried and trusted is what we need in this league

    • raaljaca 8 years ago

      Tried and trusted = elderly and overweight :) Get on the Jambos on Sunday Tony ;)

  12. Tony 8 years ago

    Ral elderly yes overweight not sure about that mate if a had plenty of cash to gamble with a would mate but remember it’s a Derby dangerous games. What bets you got on for your team.

    • raaljaca 8 years ago

      Few decent bets at evens and 21/20 Tony mate. Going to do a small Sow to score and us to win so I can run on the pitch to congratulate him ;)

  13. andy 8 years ago

    Im a Hibee and i agree with Raal, Hibs record in Derbys is atrocious, hearts win sow first goal scorer for me.

    • mexicomarti 8 years ago

      Andy: For all i agree about Hibs’ awful derby record i wonder about you really being a Hibby as all i ever ever see is you saying you’re a Hibby but praising Hearts ro the hilt no matter what! :-)

      Either that or you are the most dreary negative “fan” ever as you always put your so called team down yet strangely always praise your biggest rivals, very strange, ha ha :-)

      for me it’ll be Hibs DC for very small stakes. It’s a derby, the first of the season, a full house and anything can happen. To constantly see “fans” being so negative is all that’s wrong with Hibs. Running scared from your biggest rivals already after 1 game played. No wonder the players have an awful record as if they read forums (and many do, believe me) it certainly seeps down to them and spreads right through everyone in the club whilst giving the opposition a lift to see that even their (Hibs) own fans are giving the. not a hope whatsoever!

      So, Hibs DC for small stakes and Mr F’s Falkirk DC too for small stakes which i was looking at all week. All the best anyway :-)

    • alva glen 8 years ago

      As a GERS fan I hope Hibs stuff Herts on Sun I have never seen so many Jambos coming oot there caves to celebrate as I did on Sun but hey every dug has his day !

  14. LaurTGX 8 years ago

    Hello guys. I`m from Romanian. I found your blog by accident when I looking information from this match. I want to bet a large sum from victory Rangers ( 1.70 odds)… but I think it is a wrong decision. What do you think ? :D

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      LaurTGX, Rangers could win but on the evidence of their first 2 games they won’t. I’d say it was the wrong time to put a large sum on Rangers.

  15. alec 8 years ago

    think both teams to score in hearts game hibs with give them a game i no rangers where poor but hibs should have scored a few they missed some chances

  16. alec 8 years ago

    surely rangers must get a win tonight the players have to play better than the first 2 games

  17. Tony 8 years ago

    Paul a seen both. They wer awful not doubting the fact but I assume they will get better. Dont know if he knows how to change the tactics hope so or the team will need to carry him an themselves over the finishing line people writing rangers off won’t win the league all this carry on is nonsense

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      Tony, fair enough. I just don’t think you can say they will win. They might win and should still win the league but they need to get things sorted on and off the pitch.

  18. Tony 8 years ago

    Ral good luck hope you’s get a win never really liked that Leith lot. But tbh draw would be better for us an a wouldn’t be surprised if it finished one if you’s play the way you’s did against us in the second half from the start then you’s will probably win

  19. Tony 8 years ago

    No it’s not that easy Paul but a think we will win the night by a goal a also think we will win the league ano nothing is guaranteed but it’s rangers after all we know how to get over the finishing line better than most

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      Tony, I think the problem is you haven’t been tested for 2 years and will now be tested. You may be Rangers but if you don’t perform you’re as well being Cambuslang Rangers.

  20. Tony 8 years ago

    And I will be proven right at the end of the season

  21. Jojo 8 years ago

    Hi do you think Falkirk are worth a punt for a cheeky £20? Look to have a young confident side and they are up against in my eyes a very over-rated Rangers side. Saying that they are capable of pulling it out the bag and at 7/10 it could be a great price if they get in the faces of the less experienced youngsters. Could be one to avoid but I think the bookie is there for the taking tonight? Thoughts?

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      Jojo, double chance is safer. Problem with this game so early in the season that no result would surprise me.

  22. Tony 8 years ago

    Have not Paul an cambuslang rangers lol

  23. Jimmybeee 8 years ago

    Must be the worst 2 old firm teams I have ever saw watched both opening league games and they were awfull. This must be the season to take them on with teams on the double chance.
    But sticking with raalj and hearts will be my only footsie bet this weekend big stakes.

  24. Andy 8 years ago


    Hahaha, this is Ladbrokes advice on the Rangers game. Advise rangers 4/6, Rangers to win to nil(have they seen rangers defence?? Lol) and Boyd anytime at 7/2.

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      Andy, don’t how they played but Ladbrokes spot on.

  25. Andy 8 years ago

    I’m with you fixit, Falkirk double chance and small stake loy anytime

  26. Chris Guy 8 years ago

    Mohsni starts

    #RANGERS: Bell; McGregor, Zaliukas, Mohsni, Wallace; Macleod, McCulloch, Law, Templeton; Miller, Boyd: rng.rs/1sJFMdX

  27. banksie 8 years ago

    Rangers Htft 2/1 Ladbrokes.

  28. Kingsley 8 years ago
