“In-form” – Rangers to be wary of Aberdeen as season resumes

Rangers should certainly be wary on Tuesday of a resurgent Aberdeen who, in fact, outside of the Famous and Celtic, are by some distance the most in-form team in Scotland.

After a horror start to the season, Stephen Glass has finally turned the situation at Pittodrie around and the Dons can boast 4 wins of the last 5, finding some consistency at long last, but there is a caveat.

All four of those wins were v bottom 6 teams and the one sole loss was v Hibs, lying in 5th.

Rangers should have far too much for Pittodrie’s finest all the same, but be wary of that new confidence in the north.

Lewis Ferguson and Ross McCrorie are all in strong form now, not to mention former Ger David Bates have all helped leak just 3 goals in the last five, while Ferguson and star striker Christian Ramirez are helping out at the other end – indeed, only Motherwell’s on-fire Tony Watt is outscoring the American, with Alfie level on 8.

It means Rangers can’t take the Sheep lightly, not that we ever do, and with the returning fans seeing football again in 5 days, it gives the traveling Bears a boost to have each other’s company again.

Let’s face it, football isn’t football without the fans, and Pittodrie is a hell of a venue – easily the most toxic for Rangers to go to in Scotland.

So bring it on, we say!
