Everything you need to know about the two clubs who opened up with league wins over Motherwell and Partick Thistle respectively
RANGERS take on Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership game on Saturday.
It is the second of three homes matches on the trot with Dunfermline the visitors on Wednesday in the League Cup and Hearts due to visit in the league of August 19.
The Gers won their opening Premiership showdown at Motherwell 2-1.
Graham Dorrans was the two-goal hero but Pedro Caixinha’s men had to show their mettle to secure their first three points of the new campaign against the Steelmen.
Several players impressed on the day but it was lifelong bluenose Dorrans who enjoyed a brilliant competitive debut for his new club.
The former Norwich playmaker found the net in the fourth minute with a well-taken finish before Stephen Robinson’s side equalised through Ben Heneghan’s header before the break.
A clumsy challenge by Louis Moult on Fabio Cardoso in the 57th minute meant referee Bobby Madden had no option to point to the spot.
Dorrans showed great composure and class to bury his penalty with all that pressure on his shoulders.
Josh Windass, in particular, also looked up for the battle, using his pace and acceleration to test the Motherwell defence at every opportunity.
Hibernian ensured it was to be a winning return to the top-flight of Scottish football with a convincing 3-1 victory over Partick Thistle at Easter Road.
Partick Thistle opened the scoring through Chris Erskine after seven minutes, but the hosts rallied and goals from Martin Boyle and Steven Whittaker had the home fans in positive spirits going into the break.
A penalty from Simon Murray wrapped up the scoring, with Neil Lennon’s men picking up three points before a crowd of 17,638.
Returning hero Anthony Stokes’ arrival on to the park in the 70th minute was greeted with glee by home fans.
But his return could not spark more Hibernian goals, despite his neat link-up play with the midfield and Simon Murray.
