Rangers' Joe Aribo scythes through against Aberdeen (PA)

Richard Gough once remarked, albeit with slight exaggeration, that "Aberdeen only play four times a year."

The Rangers legend made the bold declaration, many years ago, that the Dons tended to put their shoulder to the wheel with excessive force when the Light Blues were on the radar, compared to the rest of their domestic opposition.

There may have once been a gemstone of truth in Gough's assessment, especially when you consider how such agitation envelops all connected with a club curiously locked in a small corner of their own bloated imagination and self-importance. Not this season, though, where Rangers have won both corresponding games, home and away, so far.
