Hello, good morning and welcome to The Scotsman’s coverage of today’s only match in the SPFL -
The Premiership meeting between Rangers and Aberdeen.
It’s a big week for Rangers
Steven Gerrard admits he is still irked by late capitulation in Lisbon as he prepares for Benfica rematch at Ibrox
He has had almost three weeks to try and clear it from his mind but Steven Gerrard still finds it hard to overcome his disappointment at the manner in which his team let a 3-1 lead against Benfica slip away in the Stadium of Light.
Aberdeen are depeleted but they have the playlist ready if they are on song…
As they attempt to bring Rangers’ unbeaten start to the season to an end on Sunday afternoon, Ryan Hedges insists he and his Aberdeen team-mates can take inspiration from Andrew Considine’s Scotland heroics.

On the big match
Speaking as part of Sky Sports’ build-up
It’s always fierce, there’s always stuff happening and it’s great to play in
Steven Gerrard on Alfredo Morelos
When he’s at his best and aggressive in the right way he’s a threat, he’s a goal scorer.
Underway at Ibrox
3 - Chance
Ryan Kent scampers through - onside thanks to Andy Considine - but Joe Lewis denies with a low save.
7 - Chance again
Again Joe Lewis is out low to deny the home side. This time it’s Aribo and Ash Taylor sliding across.
10 - Mucking in
Rangers stepped out from the back with Goldson and Balogun in possession - but the next to players in front of them were Arfield and Morelos - two who often combine at the top end of the park. Rangers front-line working back the way to move the team forward.
14 - GOAL
An UNBELIEVABLE strike from Ryan Kent sends Rangers ahead. An absolute stunner from the winger.
A zinger from 20 yards after a tricky run, nutmeg and the strike sails over Lewis and clips the post as it crosses the line.
