Ross County boss Stuart Kettlewell is well aware of the challenge his side will face when they welcome Rangers to Victoria Park on Sunday. 

The Gers are flying high at the top of the Scottish Premiership table while County sit ninth and two points from bottom.

After beating Celtic in November, Kettlewell and his side will look to upset the odds again but the Staggies boss recognises the ‘huge task’ Ross County face.


Kettlewell is quoted by The Daily Record as saying, “I would love to sit here and tell you it is an easy task we face on Sunday. It is another huge task for us, let’s not kid ourselves.

“It’s going to be a really tough ask but again I believe in this group, I believe in this football club and if we acquit ourselves the way we did on Sunday at Parkhead then who knows? Maybe we can upset the odds again.

“First and foremost we have to focus on being difficult to play against and focus on that togetherness and who knows where it takes you? We look forward to the game after playing as well as we did at Parkhead on Sunday.”

Rangers have already beaten Ross Country this season as goals from James Tavernier and Brandon Barker secured a 2-0 win for Steven Gerrard’s side at Ibrox in October.

It is a game that the Gers will be expecting to win but after the Staggies knocked Celtic out of the Scottish League Cup there is a concern that County could cause an upset.

Rangers’ unbeaten record won’t last forever but it is hard to envision anything other than a Gers win on Sunday.

After Thursday’s 3-2 win over Standard Liege spirits will be high and the Light Blues will want to follow up their Europa League win with three points in the league to complete a perfect week.

Rangers will be fine if they treat their game against Ross County as any other game but they can’t let the fact that the Staggies recently beat Celtic cause them any concern.
