Co-operative Insurance Cup: Rangers v Motherwell

And to think Kris Commons could have been making his Rangers debut today. Or not, depending on who you believe.

Whether Rangers were seriously in contention for Commons or not is neither here nor there. For now Walter Smith makes do with what he's got.

The aim will be to dispatch Motherwell with much the same insouciance as Celtic managed against Aberdeen yesterday.

An Old Firm final to provide the perfect send off for departing sponsors Co-operative Insurance? Or can Motherwell provide an upset today?

Rangers were hardly troubled as they brushed Hibs aside on Wednesday as Motherwell lost 1-0 to St Johnstone.

I don't expect this to be as one sided as yesterday's game. But I didn't expect yesterday's game to turn out the way it did.

Today though Motherwell will fight the good fight before being beaten by a couple of goals.

And Rangers will set up a sixth Old Firm clash of the season.
