Rangers v United Preview!

Rangers v United Preview!

Wednesday night provided Manchester United with the ideal opportunity to wrap up qualification from our group and reach the knockout stages.

All United need to do is snatch a point at Ibrox and it`s a done and dusted deal. But more importantly, qualification with one game remaining provides Sir Alex with the perfect opportunity to rest some key players for the away fixture in Valencia.

This fixture falls during a time whereby we`re facing our two main rivals for the title in Chelsea and Arsenal, enabling Sir Alex Ferguson to keep his key players specifically for those games.

Therefore, there`s a strong chance that the side that runs out at Ibrox will not be too far removed from our strongest eleven available. Although the injured Hargreaves, Valencia and Owen will miss out, there`s every chance that Sir Alex will select the likes of Scholes and Giggs, both of whom have been notable absentees from the Premier League starting eleven`s recently.

Sir Alex has already indicated that Wayne Rooney will make his first start since he became engulfed in controversy not too long ago and his appearance should provoke a noisy response from the Rangers support.

Looking forward to the game, Patrice Evra has spoken about the need to get that point and the reasons why, remarking,

"Our aim is to make sure that by the time we play Valencia next month we have already qualified."

"We have big games coming up and want to be able to concentrate on them. So if we can get what we need and qualify, we can rest players for Valencia."

Before adding about the atmosphere,

"The Scottish fans will make sure it is a great atmosphere. They make so much noise and it won`t be easy for us."

It probably won`t and Rangers will no doubt have plans of their own to try and snatch all three points, but in this 'Battle of Britain` we can see only one winner and that`s Manchester United, by two clear goals despite noises to the contrary from the other side of the border!

qualification possibly guarenteed tonight, but if Valencia win as expected as well, surely you would want to win the group to hopefully secure an easier next game, and that means you probably need some positive result in Spain.

You'd best be beating an SPL team (that stands for Scottish Pub League) if you want anyone to take you seriously.

Scottish Pub League? Says alot about Weiss and his ability then. Well it says alot about the ignorance of City as a whole really.

So are you suggesting that the Scottish League beyond the Old Firm is up to the same standards as the EPL, Serie A or La Liga? Personally don't even think the old firm can compete with the best in Europe, and that's not ignorance, it's reality.

No they're not to as good, but to assume that a match against a team of a lower-level is easy and a walkover is naive and ignorant which explains your lack of success in the Carling and FA Cups. Its football, anything can happen.
