All the details and team news for Tuesday's match as Rangers look to secure a key result in the title race.

Rangers will look to cut Celtic's lead at the top of the Premiership to three points when they welcome Aberdeen to Ibrox on Tuesday.

With the champions heading to Easter Road to face Hibs on Wednesday, Rangers have a chance to put extra pressure on Celtic when playing 24 hours earlier. They also have games in hand over the Hoops.

There will be an added edge to the game at Ibrox with Neil Warnock set to be named as interim Aberdeen manager. The former Leeds United and Sheffield United boss will take over from Barry Robson until the end of the season amid a mixed season at Pittodrie.

A 3-1 win for Aberdeen in Govan last time out brought an end to Michael Beale's reign in charge. Now Philippe Clement is in charge but he also couldn't find a way past the Dons in a 1-1 draw at Pittodrie in November.
