Alfredo Morelos will be key for Rangers

Nearly two years ago, Rangers suffered the kind of setback which, more or less, consigned Steven Gerrard's maiden season in Scotland to one of barren fortune.

Aberdeen came away from Ibrox with a 1-0 victory, notable for a campaign where the Light Blues submitted far too many draws to realistically compete with Celtic for the Premiership.

That day should be a reminder to Gerrard and Rangers fans. The Glasgow giants have been on their A game as they have set about business in 2020-21, unbeaten in the League and having conceded a mere three goals - essentially the current difference between them and defending champions Celtic. Such outstanding statistics, as well as Rangers' ruthless 8-0 dismantling of Hamilton Academical at Ibrox before the international break, draw out understandable buoyancy amongst supporters ahead of today's key clash against Aberdeen, but Gerrard will guard against complacency.
