Ross County vs Rangers preview

Rangers have a fantastic record against this week's opponents. They can make it 12 straight victories against Malky Mackay's men.

Furthermore, Van Bronckhorst's team are on a 12-game unbeaten run in all competitions heading into the clash, having last tasted defeat in November, and are sitting pretty at the top of the table.

They are in good shape defensively, too, having conceded just one goal in their last seven matches in all competitions.

The home side, on the other hand, are as low as 10th in the table and have the second-worst defensive record in the Scottish top flight.

Mackay's men will be eager to prevent a third successive defeat to boost their chances of avoiding the drop, but this challenge may be too much for the northerners.
