    • Rangers
    • Motherwell
    • 90+3' It's also finished 3-0 here at Ibrox. Ally McCoist will be pleased his side have got back to winning ways.
    • 89' Some of the home fans are leaving happy, as this game looks like ending 3-0.
    • 86' Wallace, whose had a super game, is replaced by Salim Kerkar.
    • 85' John Fleck holds the ball up well and lays it off but that's a bit sloppy from the sub as Motherwell gain possession.
    • 82' The game is slowly dying down. Both teams seem to have accpeted the scoreline.
    • 73' The visitors' heads have dropped. There could well be more goals in this - for Rangers that is.
    • 72' And it's 3-0! Good pressure from Rangers sees Lee Wallace's shot knocked beyond Randolph by his own defender Stephen Craigan.
    • 70' Motherwell slowly getting into this game, without causing Rangers any real threat. If they are to get anything from today, they need to grab a goal back soon.
    • 64' Davis has a fierce strike palmed away by Randolph. The midfielder is having an influential game and looks keen to get on the scoresheet.
    • 60' McCoist looks happier now, and so he should. Rangers now in total control asd they look for a third.
    • 55' A second for Rangers! Aluko scores his first for the club. The winger picked up a Davis pass to finish comfortably with his left foot.
    • 48' Now Bocanengra sees his strike cleared off the line! Rangers have started the second half with real gusto.
    • 47' Lee Wallace almost on the scoresheet, but his effort is block by Randolph.
    • 46' Chris Humphrey and Omar Daley replace Jamie Murphy and Stephen Hughes for Motherwell.
    • 45' Motherwell start the second half trailing by a goal to nil.
    • 45+2' And that's the end of the first half. Rangers go in leading by a goal to nil.
    • 45' Goian goes close! The defender fails to double Rangers' lead from a corner kick. The marking - or should I say lack of it - from Motherwell was almost costly.
    • 44' A few tasty challenges there from Rangers. First from Davis, then Bartley, which results in a corner kick for the hosts.
    • 42' Motherwell palying more aggressive now and seeing plenty of the ball. That goal seems to have woken the away side up.
    • 41' What a chance for Motherwell. That should have been the equaliser. Great play by Hammell, whose delivery is wasted by Higdon when it seemed easier to score.
    • 35' Goal! The breakthrough has arrived thanks to David Healy. Great finish after Papac's cut-back. Ally McCoist has just breathed a sigh of relief.
    • 32' Motherwell growing in confidence now. They'll be hoping to go in at half-time all square.
    • 31' What a chance for Rangers. Papac drives forward, delivers a lovely cross, only for Healy to see his effort drag wide. Confidence is clearly low for the Northern Ireland striker.
    • 28' Steven Davis fires in a free-kick but Randolph is well-placed to deal with it.
    • 26' Another move breaks down for Rangers. Randolph in the Motherwell goal is becoming a spectator, which won't please McCoist.
    • 23' For all their possession, Rangers have so far failed to get either Healy or Fleck into action. If you're being harsh, the hosts need to improve in the final third if they are to win today.
    • 22' Windy conditions here at Ibrox, as both teams are struggling to carve out any decent chances now.
    • 13' Lee Wallace is causing Motherwell plenty of problems, beating his man time and again. Wants lacking is real class in his delivery.
    • 10' What a blow for McCoist. Lafferty was looking a threat but a hamstring strain has put an end to his involvement in this match early on.
    • 9' Lafferty has had to come off on a scretcher. On comes John Fleck.
    • 7' Super corner by Aluko, but Doran Goian was just short of making contact and putting the home team in front. Lively start from Rangers.
    • 2' Motherwell playing keep ball at the moment. The visitors will not want to concede an early goal here.
    • 1' Rangers get us started here at Ibrox.
    • 14:59 STAT: Motherwell's last victory versus Rangers at Ibrox was in 1997. A win here for Stuart McCall's men would be more than welcomed by the Well supporters.
    • 14:50 Ally McCoist has opted for four centre backs in his defence today. Does he see set-pieces as a real danger for his side today?
    • 14:44 RANGERS: McGregor, Bartley, Goian, Bocanegra, Papac, Aluko, Davis, Edu, Wallace, Healy, Lafferty...Subs: Alexander, Fleck, McKay, McMillan, Wylde, Kerkar, McCabe. /// MOTHERWELL: Randolph, Hateley, Craigan, Hutchinson, Hammell, Clancy, Law, Hughes, Lasley, Murphy, Higdon...Subs: Bradley, Humphrey, McHugh, Daley, Forbes, Page, Carswell.
    • 14:40 Having lost their last two matches, Rangers will be happy to return to Ibrox. The Gers are undefeated on home soil so far this season and need to get back to winning ways soon if they want to stay in the title race. However, today they face a strong Motherwell side who have won seven of their 10 victories away from home this seaon.
