The Premier League leaders have yet to lose a domestic match this term ahead of the trip to Glasgow in the third round of the Scottish Communities League Cup.
McCall does not have a good record at Ibrox as manager, a venue where he has failed to win since taking his current post, but he will be looking for a change of fortune with Motherwell in good form.
And the Steelmen manager hopes his inexperienced backline can cope with the atmosphere as the hosts play their biggest match since their formation in May.
"The record we've got at Ibrox, it's very hard to classify us as favourites," McCall said. "For us this is the toughest draw we could have got, and for them a difficult one as well.
"It has the makings of a really good game. It's probably an even game, a hard one to call. If we can produce what we did up at Aberdeen on Sunday in an attacking form, I'll be really pleased.
"If you take Stevie Hammell out, we have a really young back line. The crowd will be like a 12th man for them but we're playing quite well away from home. It just has the makings of a really good game."
