Rangers Team News
Goalkeeper- J Lewis
Defenders- A Considine (VC), G Edmundson, C Goldson
Midfielders- F Ojo, N McGinn, J Aribo, R Kent, G Kamara
Forwards- B Anderson, A Morelos (C)
Andy Considine has impressed at the left back spot as well as while going forward for Aberdeen. Considine has netted six goals from the last 39 games in the league last season.
Alfredo Morelos was in sublime form for Rangers in the forward position and can once again pack a punch here. Morelos had bagged 29 goals from 46 games last season.
Rya Kent can play a pivotal role down the left flank for Rnagers. Kent had scored eight goals from 2429 minutes in the league last season.
Niall McGinn also displayed glimpses of quality last season for Aberdeen. McGinn scored seven goals from 2921 minutes in the league last season.
It were the Rangers that registered a 5-0 win versus Aberdeen which was followed by an exciting 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture. Aberdeen will be eager to start of their season on a positive note and what better way would it be by beating the champions first up. Both clubs are missing out on a few key players which could have an effect on the game. With that being said, the today match prediction odds are in favour of Rangers to nick the win by 1.40 according to bet365.
