Aberdeen face Rangers in the Scottish Premiership

Rangers will hope to banish the disappointment of last season early doors when they face Aberdeen in their Scottish Premiership opener.

The Gers fought hard in the title race for much of the season before a lapse in form during 2020 saw rivals Celtic steam ahead and claim the trophy as the league season was curtailed.

Steven Gerrard will hope his side are fit and ready for their opening clash against an Aberdeen team vying to become the stand-out ‘best of the rest’.

The Dons held Rangers to a pair of draws in their last two league meetings, proving they’re no pushovers, and will hope for a similar result or better here.

Derek McInnes’ men finished fourth last year behind an impressive Motherwell unit but will be determined to close the gap to the top two.

Our prediction: Aberdeen v Rangers

This is not the fixture Gerrard needs right now. Aberdeen at Pittodrie is no easy away day.

Rangers won all four of their pre-season friendlies, conceding just one goal in the process, but that counts for nothing when the Premiership kicks off.

Both sets of players may still be shaking off the rust, and that could lead to tired legs and concentration lapses.

Our prediction: Aberdeen 2-2 Rangers
