BRIAN SCIARETTA - Friday, May 4, 2012
The Rangers will play their final home game of their disappointing season on Saturday when they take on Motherwell at Ibrox.
Americans Carlos Bocanegra and Maurice Edu are likely to start for Rangers. Alejandro Bedoya is coming off his first goal of the season last weekend for Rangers and he is likely to be in the matchday roster.
Rangers have won the Scottish championship the past three seasons but their arch-rivals Celtic have already clinched this year. Rangers season has been plagued with financial problems and in March the club filed for administration.
As a result, they were docked 10 points in the Premier League and will not be able to participate in European competition next year. The status of all three Americans at the club is in jeopardy as many top players will likely leave in the off season.
Motherwell sits in second place but have no chance of catching Rangers for second place and are also safely clear of fourth place Dundee United. Due to the Rangers ban on European play next year, Motherwell will take part in Champions League qualifying later in the summer.
Motherwell , however, is looking to snap a 37 game winless skid against Rangers.
Motherwell will have a full squad for the game but the Rangers will be without forward Salim Kerkar.
