Kenny Miller believes recording a rare win at Aberdeen this weekend is crucial to Rangers’ Scottish Premier League title hopes.
The Ibrox club travel to Pittodrie knowing they will go top of the table for the first time since November if they get three points.
Scotland striker Miller, knows how difficult that will be at a venue where Rangers have won only once in seven attempts and against a side who beat champions Celtic on Sunday to maintain their red-hot form.
He said: "It’s always tough whenever we go up to Pittodrie. Aberdeen seem to raise their game against us and they make it very hard to get anything.
"Aberdeen have done really well in the last few weeks. They’ve got some fantastic players.
"At this stage of the campaign we really need to get three points up there, but we know how difficult that will be.
"I think we’re probably due a win at Aberdeen and we’re certainly capable of going and getting the victory. There will be pressure on us as there always is.
“It will be a pretty hostile environment, but we enjoy that kind of thing and we’ll be focused on trying to come out on top.
"We must get a win because if we’re going to win the league, it’s essential to get maximum points from these sort of games.
"It isn’t just important to win more away games, we just need to go on a run where we win all our matches."
