Steven Gerrard wants Ibrox “rocking” for the match v Hibs in Glasgow [Rangers], and that comes as absolutely no surprise.
The Ibrox factor can often be the difference from Rangers coming away with three points instead of one, and the Gers gaffer will be hoping his players can harness it against a tough Hibs side.
Paul Heckingbottom has the Easter Road club playing some good football and proving incredibly difficult to beat.
The Edinburgh side have had a busy transfer window too and will be looking to carry on their form from the opening day win against St. Mirren.
Rangers however should be confident going into this match. The club are on good form, are coming off the back of an incredible performance in Denmark, and in the most recent encounter between the two, managed to secure a 1-0 victory.
Even if it was the only one in four matches last season, Rangers were still dominant in each game.
This time around, Gerrard’s new additions must make the difference in being more clinical and getting the game over the line.
That’s why he wants the right atmosphere at Ibrox v Hibs – the Gers boss knows this is going to be a tough match.
But if we show up and perform as we all know we can, then we should take the game comfortably.
Is this the side to do it? Finnish international Glen Kamara retains his place from Thursday night whilst the impressive Jordan Jones drops out.
