Two teams in contrasting form and at opposite ends of the Scottish Premiership clash at Ibrox tonight as Rangers entertain basement boys St Johnstone.
Manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst will bid to extend the unbeaten start to his tenure against a struggling Saints side, who have failed to win any of their previous five outings.
The Light Blues continued their quest to retain the league title with a clinical 2-0 victory over Hearts on Sunday, with Alfredo Morelos and Joe Aribo netting inside the opening 15 minutes.
St Johnstone have been in wretched form and slipped to the foot of the table on goal difference after back-to-back 1-0 defeats to Dundee and Aberdeen in recent weeks.
Callum Davidson’s men have lacked real firepower up front this season, which has been a crucial factor behind their decline, but the arrival of experienced midfielder Jacob Butterfield will add some much-needed steel in the middle of the park.
Saints fans have had little to cheer so far this season but will hope a return to the scene of their dramatic Scottish Cup penalty shoot-out success over the Light Blues on route to lifting the trophy can kickstart a revival.
