Rangers without four key men for trip to Aberdeen

Rangers without four key men for trip to Aberdeen

Steven Gerrard will make his managerial debut in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday when Rangers meet Aberdeen at Pittodrie.

The Light Blues have been fairly successful since he took over at Ibrox, as he has witnessed his side progress to the third qualifying round of the Europa League.

In the six games that Gerrard has overseen, they have conceded just one goal, which came in their last game against Osijek, and he will be hoping the same kind of form can be replicated in the league.

According to a match preview by Sky Sports, Gerrard has confirmed that he has no new concerns ahead of the trip to Pittodrie, however, he will still be without a number of key players for the clash on Sunday.

Declan John remains out with a back injury, whilst Lee Wallace is unavailable with a groin problem. Jordan Rossiter will miss the clash with the Dons as he continues to recover from an ankle injury, as does Graham Dorrans who is still struggling with a knee issue.

Umar Sadiq is also expected to miss the trip as there are concerns over his fitness, following his loan move from AS Roma.

The Verdict:

Rangers will be looking to get a positive result in their first Scottish Premiership game of the season as they take on Aberdeen, a side who could be one of the Light Blues’ biggest tests during the campaign.

Gerrard will be hoping the midweek game against Osijek will not have been too tiring for his side, although he may be boosted by the fact the Dons had to go through extra time with Burnley in the Europa League.

The Light Blues have a solid record when heading to Pittodrie, with five of their last seven league trips ending in victory and they will be hoping they can continue to improve on that record on Sunday.
