Match Summary

One to Watch: Alfredo Morelos

The Colombian striker has drawn comparisons to Luis Suarez in recent months thanks to a host of impressive performances for Rangers.

Morelos is the club’s joint top scorer alongside Lafferty, with an additional two assists to his name, and the forward is clearly back to full confidence after scoring with a back heel against Hearts before the international break.

Having been snubbed by the national team, Morelos will be at full fitness come Sunday’s fixture, and keen to impress.

After a heavy defeat to Hibernian, Martin Canning may be tempted to rotate his side. Top scorer Mickel Miller remains injured, meaning that Jay Keatings may reclaim his place up front.

Kyle Lafferty will have to miss out this weekend, after the forward pulled out of international duty at short notice. This could see Liverpool loanee Ryan Kent start on the wing for Steven Gerrard’s team. 

Hamilton Academical vs Rangers Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Hamilton face a tough game against Rangers at New Douglas Park on Sunday

Rangers travel to Hamilton this weekend attempting to break into the top three. Gerrard’s side are just three points clear of second place, and face an Accies side that have won just twice in eight games. 

Hamilton are 8/1 to win, with their only victories coming against two of the three teams below them in the league. Canning’s side have missed the impact of young striker Miller, and have subsequently struggled to find the target in his absence. 

Rangers are 1/3 to win on Sunday, and are undoubtedly the favourites following a strong run of form. Gerrard’s side have won all of their league games since an impressive Europa League performance at Villarreal, and beat league leaders Hearts in their last game. 

A draw is 4/1 and would be a strong result for Hamilton, although, with fellow relegation candidates St Johnston playing Motherwell this weekend, a win would see them vastly improve their league position. 

Rakish Bingham is 11/1 to score first, and is one of just four players to have contributed to Hamilton’s six league goals this season. 

Alfredo Morelos is 7/3 to score first and despite being a clearly talented player, needs to up his goal output to be judged amongst the top strikers in the league. At just 22 years old the Colombian has time on his side, and should benefit from Gerrard’s tutelage. 

Predicted Score: Hamilton Academical 0 - 2 Rangers
