Motherwell manager Stuart Kettlewell expects "the sternest test" of his impressive away record when they visit Rangers in Sunday's Scottish Premiership match. The Steelmen have not lost a league game on the road since Kettlewell took charge in mid-February. “There is a belief, there has to be a belief in how we are playing," said Kettlewell.
Rangers manager Michael Beale says it's a case of "when not if" the club's young players will have to make a first-team impact. Beale hinted midfielder Bailey Rice, 16, could feature against Motherwell in Saturday's Scottish Premiership match at Ibrox. Todd Cantwell, Danilo, Kieran Dowell and Nico Raskin will miss out for Rangers this weekend, having also been absent for the midweek Europa League win over Real Betis.
