Summer signing Kenny Miller is having his third spell as a player of Glasgow Rangers

After being denied promotion via the play-off last season, Rangers will be hoping to continue to fight their way back to the top tier of Scottish football. The Gers remain reasonably well fancied for the Scottish Championsip title among the top online bookmakers, but they will face stiff competition from Hibernian who are looking to bounce back at the second attempt.

A raid on Wigan Athletic's assets sees Rob Kiernan, James Tavernier and Martyn Waghorn arrive at the club, while Jason Holt comes in from Hearts along with a clutch of free transfers. None of the new arrivals are over the age of 25, so it's clear that Rangers are planning for the future with an emphasis on youth and promising British talent.

Nicky Law will be aiming to have another cracking season in front of goal having netted 13 goals in all competitions from midfield last term. However with Kris Boyd moving on, Kenny Miller will be the man that Rangers look to to get the goals they need and they'll be hoping that he and Martyn Waghorn can become a successful strike partnership.

Rangers will hope to keep dropped points to a minimum to finish ahead of and Hibsand the club remained a force to be reckoned with in knock-out competitions last term, reaching the semi-final of the Scottish League Cup and Challlenge Cup.

Getting back to the Scottish Premiership is the ultimate goal for Rangers, but picking up some silverware along the way would certainly lighten the mood during what are difficult times at Ibrox, plus a good cup run increases the chances of another Old Firm clash with local rivals Celtic, something which even neutral football fans always look forward to.
