Soon after Rangers picked up the first piece of silverware on offer in Scotland this season, edging out Aberdeen to lift the Viaplay Cup at Hampden, they were back in Premiership action on Wednesday.

James Tavernier’s 14th goal of the campaign had sealed success in the cup final, and it was the Gers’ captain that secured all three points against St Johnstone in midweek, when his late penalty followed a Cyriel Dessers opener.

Victory continued a remarkable upturn since Philippe Clement took charge at Ibrox, instigating a run of results that have not only seen Rangers lift the League Cup but also win their Europa League group and narrow the gap to city rivals Celtic.

With the next Old Firm derby set to end an eventful 2023 schedule, the Light Blues will aim to arrive at Parkhead having extended their current six-match winning run by taking care of both Motherwell and Ross County in the coming days.

Curiously, though, Rangers have actually lost each of their last three top-flight away games played on Christmas Eve – most recently to St Mirren in 2011 – and their last such win came back in 1949, with Partick Thistle their victims on that occasion.

Nonetheless, the Glasgow giants are unbeaten in 28 league visits to Fir Park stretching back over two decades, winning no fewer than 19 times in the process.

All told, Motherwell are winless in 56 league meetings with Rangers, against whom current boss Stuart Kettlewell has lost all seven of his previous matches.

His side finally picked up their first clean sheet since September on Saturday, holding St Mirren to a goalless stalemate – their fifth draw in seven outings

Liam Kelly preserved a point by saving Mark O’Hara’s penalty, but as they face four games over the festive period, the Steelmen will be eager to taste success after several weeks of waiting.

Motherwell travel to Aberdeen just after Christmas, then host Livingston and visit Hibernian in quick succession before the Premiership shuts up stop for its winter break.

However, they have failed to win any of their last seven home fixtures in the top flight, amid a run of six draws and eight defeats from their last 14 league outings. All of which leaves Kettlewell’s men five points above rock-bottom Livingston, yet also just five adrift of seventh-placed Dundee
