Our Rangers v St Mirren tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below - plus the latest match odds.
Rangers will be hoping for a better result after a 1-0 Europa League loss in their previous game against Bayer Leverkusen.
In that game, Rangers had 35% possession and 2 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. At the other end, Bayer 04 Leverkusen got 15 shots on goal with 2 of them on target. Moussa Diaby (51') was the scorer for Bayer Leverkusen.
Rangers have struggled with their forward play of late. Their sum of goals stands at just 3 vs opposing sides during their last 6 matches. In those meetings, The Gers have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them total 6. Nevertheless, time will tell whether that pattern might continue on here in this match.
Ahead of this clash, Rangers haven't been beaten in the league by St Mirren in their previous 10 games. Quite a long unbeaten run against them.
St Mirren go into this meeting after a 1-0 Premiership win against Livingston in their previous game.
In that game, St Mirren had 46% possession and 6 attempts on goal with 2 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for St Mirren was Richard Tait (30'). At the other end, Livingston had 12 shots at goal with 3 of them on target.

Ahead of this clash, St Mirren haven't beaten Rangers when they have played them away from home in the previous 16 matches in the league. Terrible.

Team News: St Mirren
Owing to a fully injury-free squad ready to go, St Mirren boss Jim Goodwin doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this clash.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Rangers will, in all likelihood, stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
Conversely, St Mirren are also probably going to find it difficult to score themselves but we can see them converting at least once as well.
Our tip is for a pretty comfortable 3-1 winning score for Rangers after 90 minutes.
