Ranger 6 - Hibernian 1

For the sake of balance lets reflect on yesterdays game at Ibrox. The snippet below is from the Scotsman.….

"Come full-time the 6-1 scoreline somewhat flattered the Capital club. Rangers had 33 shots, 18 hit the target. Ofir Marciano made an error for the first of Alfredo Morelos' two goals but was still, by far, Hibs' best player.

The shot total was the most shots and most shots on target recorded by a home team in the Scottish top flight since the 2000/2001 season."

In short we absolutely destroyed Hibs yesterday and no-one could have complained if we had hit double figures. We had a wee lull after Hibs scored with their first real attempt but I felt it was more out of shock that Hibs were actually still in the game more than a fear of losing the match.

A few wee comments from me;

1. We have two great strikers who will continue to score goals this season. And there seems to be a genuine rivalry/respect between the two of them. Defoe bagged a hat trick and then Alfie tried desperately to do the same in his 15 minute cameo. Encouraging.

2. I thought Ojo was superb yesterday. Hibs couldn't get near him and when they did it generally resulted in a booking. Both Ojo and Aribo seemed really uneasy on that Killie pitch last week and there were a few snap judgements being made on him - I have even read that some folk see him as a downgrade on Candeais which I find incredible.

Ojo will be a bit up and down like all wingers are but I expect double figures for both goals and assists from him this season.

3. Jordan Jones has had a great week. The freebie sand dancer from Killie has shown he can make a contribution and I hope he continues to make us eat our words.

4. Beating both Hibs and Killie is a small but important statement from us. We dropped loads of points against these two teams.

It is early doors but it looks like our recruitment plus last years experiences do look to have pushed us on. We have decent options now that can come in and do a job at this level.

The important thing is we need to keep winning because I cant see Celtic dropping too many points soon. It is all really whetting the appetite for the first OF game of the season in a few weeks.

Should be an absolute cracker

The guy with one trouser leg rolled up, much like the rest, apart from Collum.

SPR, that he did mate.
Aberdeen not scoring done me for 240 tho - and I still can't believe it.

Best bet of the day was BTTS FH in the Rangers game.

Had Aberdeen not come back against Hearts, McInness might have been on a shoogly peg.

I never bet on the football but sky bet sucked me in on the daft boosts they do £20 down the drain.

It did give me a reason to watch more football.

The one I saw today van dijk 1+ header on target 7 to 1

Another tenner on it. I better delete that app

My favourite bet is 'over 0.5 first half goals'.
Even better if the favourites haven't scored at 25 mins.
I do multiples of it too.

Broke the record since 02 apparently.

I thought Ojo was one of the poorer players and i haven't really seen what he adds except goals

Sounds a bit mad really but his contribution isn't much unless he's cutting inside for a ping. Needs to improve all round game.

Hoping to see two Rangers sides almost this week so we get a good look at them all.

Strongest on Thurs

McGregor
Flanagan
Katic
Goldson
Tavernier
Jack
Davis
Aribo
Arfield
Jones
Morelos

Then on Sunday.

Fod
Barasic
Edmundson
Helander
Polster
Kamara
Docherty
Stewart
Ojo
Hastie
Defoe

Haliday, Barker and Murphy to get some minutes too.
