Match Preview

Lafferty set for Gers return Rangers are boosted by the news that Kyle Lafferty is set to return for their Clydesdale Bank Premier League game against Motherwell. Lafferty missed the Scottish Cup tie against Celtic with tonsilitis, and was tested for glandular fever, but has recovered and is back in contention for the clash at Ibrox. Lee McCulloch is out as he prepares to undergo knee surgery next week, while Kirk Broadfoot is still sidelined with a foot problem. Walter Smith insists Rangers will happily attempt to handle another fixture pile-up if it means they continue to battle on four fronts for silverware. The Ibrox side faced a crippling schedule en route to the UEFA Cup final in 2008, before eventually missing out on that trophy and the Clydesdale Bank Premier League title. Echoing that period, Rangers could again face four games in eight days as they bid to defend their SPL crown, while battling for the other two domestic cups and facing Sporting Lisbon in the last 32 of the Europa League. But Smith would rather have the problems which come with success rather than contemplate failure in what is set to be his final season at the Ibrox helm. He said: "We've experienced it before. I wouldn't say we are worried, we are not worried until it happens. "There are quite a few cup games that can cause us a problem if we win them. "Hopefully we will maybe have the problem but we will just have to wait and see how it goes. "If we don't have the cup games, then the problem is alleviated. It's a difficult one to try and work out. "It only occurred back then (in 2008) because the run took us right through to the UEFA Cup final. That was the biggest problem we had in terms of trying to fit in other games. "If it happens again, we will be pleased that it's happened but we will just have to wait and see. "If we look back to that time, the weather conditions caused a lot of games to be postponed and there were one or two other happenings. "It would look as though, if a Scottish team does go to the final, there are other problems. There will always be this fixture pile-up. It could happen to anybody. "I'm not quite sure what happened to Celtic when they went to the UEFA Cup final. "I think they had one or two games to put in as well so it would look as though the Scottish teams would have that situation if they ever get a successful run in Europe." Motherwell have a number of injury doubts. Keith Lasley (ribs), Stephen Craigan and Stevie Hammell (both hamstring) could all miss the game, while Steven Saunders is suspended and also has a hamstring injury. Bob McHugh remains on the sidelines with a wrist injury but new signing Francis Jeffers will be included in the squad.

Match Report

Rangers hit six to crush Well Nikica Jelavic grabbed a hat-trick and David Healy netted a debut goal as Rangers ran riot with a 6-0 win over Motherwell in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League. Steven Naismith set the ball rolling with an early opener and Shaun Hutchison also chipped in with an own goal at Ibrox. The emphatic win allowed Rangers to move within two points of leaders Celtic ahead of their game against Dundee United on Sunday. Kyle Bartley, who joined on loan from Arsenal on transfer deadline day, made his debut for Rangers in the clash at Ibrox. He was drafted into the midfield in the holding role usually occupied by the injured Lee McCulloch. Motherwell were boosted by the news that injury doubts Keith Lasley and Stephen Craigan were both passed fit enough to start. El-Hadji Diouf could have claimed his first Rangers goal when he pounced on a Vladimir Weiss ball and surged into the box, only for goalkeeper Darren Randolph to race off his line and do enough to prevent a clean shot at goal from the on-loan Blackburn man. The Scottish champions did not have too much longer to wait for the opener and were ahead with just five minutes on the clock. Jelavic's flick was collected by Weiss and he slipped a lovely pass into the path of Naismith from the left flank and a simple finish was all that was required as he stabbed home from six yards. Weiss then went to ground in the box under pressure from Steve Jones, but there was no penalty award from referee Alan Muir despite the protests of the Rangers fans. Motherwell had the chance to draw level when Tom Hateley's free-kick found Jones at the back post, but he smashed his effort into the side-netting before John Sutton nodded just over the crossbar. The visitors were left rueing those missed opportunities when Jelavic grabbed two goals in as many minutes for Rangers. Steven Whittaker was the architect for the first with a cross from the right that the Croatian striker met before bulleting past Randolph from 15 yards after 35 minutes. Bartley then won a free-kick which was flighted into the box by Weiss, where Jelavic was waiting to lash home from close range. Rangers' other goalscorer, Naismith, was withdrawn just before the interval and replaced by John Fleck. Motherwell made their first change shortly after the restart when Jonathan Page was swapped for Ross Forbes. Forbes immediately almost pulled a goal back with a powerful deflected shot from distance that was just tipped over by goalkeeper Allan McGregor. Rangers made another substitution with just over an hour gone as Diouf made way for fellow new recruit Healy, who made his first appearance for Rangers since his January switch from Sunderland. There was also a debut for Motherwell when Francis Jeffers was thrown into the action for Sutton with just under 20 minutes to go, but his introduction did nothing to prevent a rampant Rangers from chalking up another three goals. Steven Davis charged through the middle before spraying a pass out to Fleck wide on the left and he delivered into the box where Hutchison inadvertently poked into the back of his own net after 75 minutes. Jelavic completed his hat-trick three minutes later. David Weir punted a long ball forward and Sasa Papac provided the header for the striker to fire home. But it was Healy who had the final say when he marked his maiden bow for the Scottish champions with an angled drive into the bottom corner to complete the rout with eight minutes to go.
