It’s certainly not been a very good week for Rangers has it?
Last Saturday, they needed a stoppage time equaliser from John Lundstram to salvage a draw with ten-man Livingston at home.
This saw Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team fall four points behind league-leaders Celtic.
Then, on Wednesday night, the Gers were hammered in the Champions League again, this time beaten 3-0 by Napoli at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Last year’s Europa League Finalists remain pointless in the Champions League and, if Ajax beat them on Tuesday, they’ll have posted the worst group stage in history.
So, what the Light Blues really don’t need is another disappointing result here.
Given all of that, Aberdeen will fancy their chances of a result.
Last Saturday, goals from Bojan Miovski and Luís Lopes saw the Dons beat Motherwell at Fir Park, their first away victory since August.
This though moved Jim Goodwin’s men up to third, having won four of their last five in league and cup.
The Reds are winless in 11 meetings with Rangers, their last victory coming in 2019, a 2-0 Scottish Cup replay victory in Govan.
Will Aberdeen add to the Gers’ misery in that one at Ibrox?
