Rangers Looking to Turn up the Heat

Rangers will look to extend their advantage over Celtic when they host Hamilton in the pick of Saturday's Scottish Premiership fixtures.

Steven Gerrard will hope his Rangers side can get the better of Hamilton on Saturday.

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers side sit joint-top of the Scottish Premiership, and they will be hoping to extend their advantage over rivals Celtic when they face Hamilton Academical on Saturday night.

The Gers are perched alongside Hibernian on 13 points, but they have played two more games than Celtic, with the Hoops back in fourth on seven points

Rangers’ clash with Hamilton is one of four games to look forward to on Saturday, while there are two fixtures scheduled for Sunday afternoon.

Accies’ trip to Ibrox kicks off at 17:30 and Gerrard’s side will be confident of keeping a clean sheet.

Hamilton have only scored two goals in their last four Premiership matches, while Rangers have kept four clean sheets in a row and they are 2/3 to win to nil.

Since the 2008/09 campaign, Rangers have won all 11 of their top flight away games against Hamilton and they will be confident of improving that tally this weekend.

Pressure on Struggling Killie

Earlier in the day, Kilmarnock will welcome Dundee United to The BBSP Stadium, with the former looking to win their first match of the season.

Killie are 11th after only picking up two points, while Dundee United are five points better off and they are 39/20 to grab all three points this week.

Kilmarnock have lost the last two Scottish Premiership meetings between the pair, conceding nine goals in the process.

St. Johnstone and St.Mirren will meet at McDiarmid Park at 15:00, while bottom club Livingston will take on high-flying Ross County.

Ross County won the last meeting between the pair 2-0 in February, with Billy McKay grabbing a brace.

McKay is set to start this weekend and he is priced at 5/2 to score anytime.

Celtic Ready to Bounce Back After Euro Heartache

On Sunday, Celtic host Motherwell, with Neil Lennon’s team desperate to get over their Champions League defeat to Ferencvaros.

The Hoops had made an unbeaten start domestically, but the Steelemen will try to take advantage of their midweek wobble in Europe, having themselves beaten Glentoran 5-1 in the Europa League.

However, the record books suggest they will struggle, with Motherwell losing each of their last seven league visits to Parkhead.

Bhoys forward Odsonne Edouard has scored nine goals in nine appearances against Motherwell and the Frenchman is 23/10 to score first this weekend.

The final game this weekend sees two in-form sides battle it out at Easter Road.

Hibernian have yet to lose this season, while they face seventh-placed Aberdeen who have won their last three matches in all competitions.

Hibs are looking to win back-to-back top-flight home games against the Dons for the first time since May 2003 and they are 27/20 to secure all three points on home soil.
