A minutes silence will be held prior to kick-off in memory of former Rangers manager Walter Smith who died yesterday, aged 73

Steven Gerrard reckons a Rangers victory over Aberdeen on Wednesday night would be the perfect tribute to Walter Smith, who sadly passed away earlier this week aged 73.

A capacity crowd will arrive at Ibrox on what is likely to be an emotional evening for everyone connected with the Light Blues, 24 hours after the death of one of the club’s greatest ever managers.

Gerrard admitted Gers legend Smith “made him a better person” as he shared a touching tribute in light of the news on Tuesday morning.

The Scottish Champions opened a three-point gap at the top of the table with a battling 2-1 victory over St Mirren on Sunday, a match that saw Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos net his 100th goal for the club.

Aberdeen, meanwhile, ended a dreadful run of ten games without a win on Saturday when they edged out Hibernian 1-0, courtesy of a neat Christian Ramirez goal but the win came at a cost with manager Stephen Glass losing several players to injury.

Supporters inside the ground will pay their respect to Walter Smith with a minutes silence prior to kick-off.
