Motherwell 1-1 Rangers. The spoils were shared at Fir Park on Sunday January 17th.

It’s only the third time that Steven Gerrard’s side have dropped points in the Scottish Premiership this season. Following the match, I spoke with Alex McLeish and David Weir for Football Pass. WATCH HERE.

Both men praised Rangers for their efforts this season but in the end agreed that a draw was a fair result.

Alex McLeish is no stranger to both football clubs having managed Motherwell from 1994 to 1998 before going on to manage Rangers later in his managerial career between 2001 and 2006.

He knows how big a result against Celtic or Rangers can be when you are managing a side out with the Glasgow giants.

McLeish told me that a point against a relentless Rangers side could be a turning point for the Steelmen in their season, “Motherwell were very effective at nullifying Rangers at the weekend particularly in the first half. The result will give Graham Alexander and his side massive confidence for the rest of the season.”

Graham Alexander will be delighted with a point against Rangers and he’ll be desperate to follow up it with a win in their next game away to Aberdeen on Sunday.
