Rangers turn out at Ibrox today looking to pile on the misery on a Motherwell side anchored in the basement after finishing runners- up in the league to Walter Smith's team last season.

Rangers are a point clear of Celtic, but they will be without their striker Gordon Durie, who had a hernia operation earlier this week. Richard Gough, the captain, should return in defence and Ally McCoist and Ian Ferguson are also in contention.

The encounter at Firhill between Partick Thistle and Kilmarnock features teams caught in the relegation struggle. Kilmarnock will be without the suspended Ally Mitchell and Neil Whitworth, while the striker Steve Maskrey has bruised ribs.

Partick will be missing the suspended pair, Billy McDonald and Steve Pittman, and Tommy Turner is still out through injury, but Rod McDonald is free to play, pending his appeal against last week's red card against Rangers.
