Rangers

Former Rangers midfielder Alex Rae believes the Gers will come out on top when they travel to Edinburgh to face Neil Lennon’s Hibernian on Wednesday night.

Rae believes the Hibees will be a “challenge” for Graeme Murty’s side but thinks they are strong enough to pick up the three points.

Predicting a 2-1 win for the visitors, Rae is unsure over who Murty will choose to lead the line after Alfredo Morelos ended his recent goal drought in Saturday’s win over Ross County.

“I’m going to say 2-1 Rangers, but my predictions are crap and normally wrong!” Rae told Rangers fans’ site Gersnet.

“I don’t know who’ll start with Morelos getting back to scoring goals or if he’ll stick with Kenny, might go two up top, I don’t honestly know.

“I watched Hibs on Sunday against Celtic and they looked good so it’ll be a challenge but one I think we’ll win.”

The Gers are on a three-game winning streak for the first time in 12 months and will be hoping to make it four against Lennon’s side as they go into the hectic festive schedule.

Saturday’s win over Ross County closed the gap on Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic to five points with the two sides meeting in the second Old Firm derby of the season on December 30th at Celtic Park.

Incredibly, since sacking Pedro Caixinha the Gers have picked up more points in the Scottish Premiership than Brendan Rodgers’ side – despite the Hoops not losing a domestic game since May 2016.
