Match preview

If Mick Beale’s first two matches are anything to go by, his tenure as Rangers manager is certainly going to be lively!

On Tuesday night, despite Fashion Sakala’s early opener, the Gers found themselves 2-1 down at Pittodrie with the clock running down.

However, in the fifth minute of injury time, Scott Arfield bundled home an equaliser before, 137 seconds later, scoring the most dramatic of last-gasp winners.

How crucial a goal could that turn out to be?

This came just five days after Beale’s first game at the helm, in which the Light Blue came from behind twice to beat Hibs.

So, with the first Old Firm of the season in just ten days time looming large, Rangers simply must keep on winning.

This’ll be the Gers first trip to Dingwall since January, the venue where their title challenge started to unravelled last time round.

Back then, Matthew Wright equalised in the 96th minute, snatching a 3-3 draw for Ross County.

Fast forward 11 months, the Staggies sit tenth, above the relegation play-off place on goal difference, desperate to stay away from danger.

Malky Mackay’s men took on St Johnstone on Saturday, going in front through Jordan White.

However, Jack Baldwin’s red card on the hour mark changed the game, with the Saints fighting back, winning 2-1, courtesy of two goals just two minutes apart.

In this Friday night clash in the Highlands, can Ross County cause Rangers problems?
