Ross County vs RangersScottish Premiership, KO: 12:30 Jan 29, 2022, Victoria Park
RANGERS face a tricky trip to the Highlands to face a Ross County side who seem to be heading in the right direction under Malky Mackay.
The Ibrox side were in midweek action and needed a late winner to beat a stuffy Livingston side at Ibrox to remain four points clear at the top.
Rangers haven't exactly hit the ground running after their winter break and manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst will demand a reaction in Dingwall
County were also playing and let slip a one-goal lead at Tannadice to lose 2-1 to Dundee United which irritated Mackay.
But Rangers will need to be on their best to match the Staggies.
How the bookies view it
Rangers are unbackable on a single unless you have deep pockets with Betfred's 2/7 the best you'll get with 1/4 the average price.
County can be backed at 11/1 with Coral and the draw is 9/2 with SBK.
Recent head to heads
Ross County have never beaten Rangers in their history – a run which stretches to 17 games. However, County gave Rangers a decent game when the sides met earlier this season at Ibrox in a game where the hosts eventually won 4-2 as can be seen below.
It also finished 4-2 in Dingwall in August.
Players to watch
With no Alfredo Morelos who is on international duty with Colombia, the onus will be on Kemar Roofe to prove he merits an Old Firm start in midweek. He's odd-on with bet365 to net at 4/5.
Regan Charles-Cook has been attracting admiring glances from plenty of clubs both in Scotland and England and he's a very decent player as he proved again by scoring in miweek at Tannadice. He can be backed at 11/2 with the same firm to score.
Anything else catch the eye?
County are nearly always good for a goal and there should be a few here. The obvious call is our old favourite of both teams to score and a Rangers win because that defence has looked vulnerable recently. That is 85/40 with BetVictor.
McBookie.com's 20/21 for the hosts just to score looks a good call too and going by the same way of thinking, the 6/4 with bet365 for both teams to score and over 2.5 goals – given there has been six goals in both games – looks to have a good chance too.
