Rangers shift their focus back on Premiership duty this weekend when they make the short journey to face Motherwell at Fir Park as the post-split fixtures get underway.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst side will head to North Lanarkshire in a confident frame of mind after securing their place in the Europa League semi-finals before booking a Scottish Cup final place just three days later.

Impressive victories over Portuguese outfit Braga and Glasgow rivals Celtic has lifted the mood around the Ibrox club as they prepare to make inroads into the six-point deficit at the top of the table.

The Scottish champions have ground to make up in the title race and they return to a happy hunting ground on Saturday after cruising to a 6-1 victory over the Steelmen back in October.

Motherwell did, however, claim a 1-1 draw at Ibrox in the sides’ most recent meeting and they will bid to boost their hopes of claiming one of the two qualifying places for the Europa Conference League.

Van Bronckhorst will be mindful of Rangers midweek trip to face RB Leipzig on Thursday and that may affect his team selection given the heavy fixture schedule.

Motherwell secured the final top-six spot a fortnight ago after Ricki Lamie’s dramatic injury-time winner against Livingston at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

That was the Steelmen’s first league win in 13 games but six draws during that period was enough to clinch a place in the top half of the table. They can effectively end Rangers’ title challenge with a victory.

What’s the team news ahead of Motherwell vs Rangers?

Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst has been monitoring the condition of his players closely after back-to-back victories over Braga and Celtic in the space of just four days.

Aaron Ramsey, who limped off with a hamstring problem during the first-half against the Hoops at Hampden, misses out this weekend but could be back in contention for the second leg of the RB Leipzig game at Ibrox in a fortnight.

Fears were that the Welshman had sustained a season-ending injury but that is no longer the case. He will, however, watch the Old Firm derby at Parkhead from the stands.

Striker Kemar Roofe is another noticeable absentee after the Englishman picked up a knee issue last weekend that could force him to miss out on games against Leipzig and Celtic.

Centre-back Filip Helander (foot) and top goalscorer Alfredo Morelos (thigh) have joined Ianis Hagi (knee) on the sidelines until the summer.

Fatigue will have been a key factor after the Ibrox club were taken the distance in both competitions.

Van Bronckhorst admitted: “Ramsey we will hopefully have him back around the Leipzig home game.

“We also had a problem with Roofe after the game with his knee, for him it is the same out for some weeks and hopefully returns around the Leipzig home match.”

Motherwell boss Graham Alexander left defensive duo Stephen O’Donnell and Nathan McGinley out of his matchday squad for the game against Livingston.

Midfielder Barry Maguire has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a muscle injury, while recent signing Robbie Mahon remains short of match fitness.
