Ross County vs RangersScottish Premiership, KO: 12:30 Aug 26, 2023, Victoria Park
RANGERS could have done without the long journey north to face Ross County on Saturday in between their vital Champions League play-offs.
And Michael Beale will face a real selection dilemma in the Highlands.
Rangers were pegged back twice by PSV Eindhoven in midweek although the Dutch side looked a very classy outfit.
The Ibrox side travel to the Netherlands next week and Beale will almost certainly rotate his squad again ahead of a second leg that will be worth many millions for the club if they manage to eliminate PSV for the second year in a row.
But that's taking a pretty big risk against a dangerous Ross County side who seem to have no problem finding the net after
The Staggies have scored at least two goals in all seven games so far this season and you can include two they netted at Parkhead in the opening day defeat to Celtic.
Last week they scored four at Airdrie after extra time, although they conceded two late goals in Lanarkshire.
Malky Mackay's side could be good entertainment this season and they will get chances on Saturday against a Rangers side who still don't look too secure.

The home side are 11/10 with three of a start in the corners handicap at bet365 and that has to be backed here.
