Rangers vs Stranraer Betting Tips - Scottish giants to stroll past League One strugglers

Rangers have won their last 5 matches

Rangers should have too much quality for Stranraer in their Scottish Cup third round clash at Ibrox. The Glasgow club are on a five-match winning run and are backed to make light work of Stranraer who are struggling in the Scottish third tier.

Rangers Form


Rangers’ last competitive action was a 2-1 victory over Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic. Goals in each half from Nikola Katic and Ryan Kent were enough to earn the win over their bitter Glasgow rivals.

Steven Gerrard’s men have been in good form lately and also earned a 6-1 victory over Lokomotiv Tashkent in a friendly. The result means they have now won their last five matches, keeping three clean sheets in that run.

Rangers News


Striker Alfredo Morelos is set to miss Friday’s match due to suspension and is likely to be replaced by Jermaine Defoe who has 11 league goals this season. Filip Helander is also sidelined for Rangers due to injury.

Stranraer Form


Stranraer are coming off a 3-3 draw at Clyde in a Scottish League One fixture. They twice threw away leads with Cameron Elliott’s brace and an effort from Jordan Allan cancelled out by Clyde. 

Stevie Farrell’s men are having a poor League One campaign and travel to Glasgow with no wins in their last five matches. They also have a woeful record on the road with seven defeats in their 11 away matches. 

Stranraer News


Stranraer have no injuries or suspensions ahead of the trip to Ibrox. 

Rangers vs Stranraer Head to Head 


Rangers have never lost to Stranraer, claiming four wins and a draw from their last five matches. The Glasgow club have also kept four clean sheets in that run and earned a 3-0 victory the last time they faced Stranraer during the 2016-17 Scottish League Cup.

Rangers vs Stranraer Betting Odds


Rangers are priced at minimal odds of 1.04 for a win while Stranraer are set at a massive 26.00 for a shock victory. A draw is pegged at 15.00 while Jermain Defoe is set at odds of 1.40 to score in a win for Rangers.

Rangers vs Stranraer Match Up


Rangers have built their recent good form on a sturdy defence having kept three clean sheets in their last six matches. Centre backs Conor Goldson and Nikola Katic will be confident of shutting out the Stranraer attack while Jermain Defoe is expected to carry the team’s attacking threat. 

Stranraer will look to Cameron Elliott to provide the spark but the striker has just three goals in all competitions this season. Having only just ended an 18-match goal drought with his brace against Clyde, he is likely to struggle against a solid Rangers backline.
