C:WindowsTempphpD599.tmpDingwall may not be visited by either Allan McGregor or Brandon Barker as Rangers take on Ross County on Wednesday despite assistant manager Gary McAllister staying hopeful that thewy could yet be decalred fit for action. Both landed awkwardly during Sunday’s win againt Motherwell to put their participation in Dingwall tomorrow night in doubt. McAllister said: "We have a few little doubts as we took some blows from the game against Motherwell at the weekend. Allan McGregor landed awkwardly, Brandon Barker the same and it was a very strong challenge on him and he spun over and landed awkwardly on his shoulder. We are hopeful though on the two lads I mentioned."

Sunday's win was thanks to a set-piece from Filip Helander – the sixth time this season such a play has resulted in a goal for Rangers. McAllister said: "It is something we work on diligently all the time. Tom Culshaw takes care of the set-pieces and we spend a lot of time on delivery, movements and little bits of cleverness to try and out-fox the opponents. A lot of games, right at the top level of football, are decided by set-pieces. It is important you do spend time practicing – we want to perform at our highest and we want to score nice goals and play little combinations – but, if we are going to win games with set-pieces, that is a big plus."

Helander has impressed McAllister with his recent performances. He said; "I think you are seeing a player who has Serie A experience, and he is also a proven international and you can see that. We have waited and we have given him an opportunity to look at our games and look at the physicality that is within the league, and I think he is coming to terms with it now."
