Hamilton are the second worst side in the SPFL over the past ten games – only Kilmarnock have a worse record
Predictably, Rangers are the form team in the division, as they have been all season with only the flat draw at Motherwell interrupting the winning run.
Alfredo Morelos will again sit out in the second game of his suspension over the stamping inident against Hibs. Scott Arfield is nearing the first team but Sunday comes to early for the midfielder. Niko Katic remains out long-term. Scott Wright could feature for a debut, as could Jack Simpson.
Hamilton will have new signing Bruce Anderson – who has scored against Rangers – in the ranks, but Will Collar left the club.
Hamilton inflicted one of the worst defeats of Steven Gerrard’s managerial career at Ibrox 11 months ago when Davide Moyo gave Accies their first win in Govan since Adrian Sprott’s famous Scottish Cup upset in 1989.
This season there has been no repeat. Rangers won 2-0 on their first visit to the Fountain of Youth Stadium and then thumped Brian Rice’s side 8-0 at Ibrox, prompting fans to confront the boss on the team’s return to Lanarkshire.
Aside from the shock – but deserved win – last year – Rangers have won 20 of the other 22 recent encounters, drawing 1-1 at Ibrox on the opening day of the 2016-17 season.
