Rangers, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following the 0-3 Premiership success vs Livingston.
In that game, Rangers managed 71% possession and 11 shots at goal with 5 on target. For Rangers, goals were scored by James Tavernier (42'), Ryan Kent (57') and Ianis Hagi (83'). At the other end, Livingston had 9 shots at goal with 2 of them on target.
Their more recent scorelines really do illustrate the point that huge efforts have been put in by the Rangers backline. The Gers have been stingy, seeing the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their previous 6 games standing at 4. That sort of trend isn’t assured to be continued into this next game, though.
Their past results show that Rangers:
- have not been beaten in the league by Aberdeen in their last 8 games. A decent run, indeed.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 18 home league matches. What a fantastic run.
Since being beaten in their last game against Hibernian in Premiership action, Aberdeen will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that game, Aberdeen had 68% possession and 14 shots at goal with 4 on target. For their opponents, Hibernian had 8 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. Christian Doidge (41') scored for Hibernian.
Looking at their form, and Aberdeen have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 8 goals in all. At the back, The Dons can certainly do much better.
Pre-game facts show that Aberdeen:
- have not registered a win against Rangers in away games against them for the last 4 matches in the league. They'll be keen to stop this run.
- are undefeated in their last 2 away league matches.

Team News: Rangers
Nikola Katic (Unknown Injury) and Ryan Jack (Calf Injury) will not be able to play for Rangers gaffer Steven Gerrard.
Team News: Aberdeen
Out of a mainly healthy group of players, there’s just the lone fitness issue for the Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass to contend with. Michael Devlin (Ankle Surgery) won’t be in action.
We feel that Rangers can and should be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target.
In contrast, Aberdeen won’t find it easy getting on the scoresheet although we do reckon that they could well end up being dangerous for periods.
Our selection here is for a 3-1 winning score for Rangers when the full-time whistle blows.
