With Rangers now in the top flight of Scottish football, the sporting calendar North of the Border gets a much-needed shot in the arm.
While the Gers are not quite what they were prior to their ‘death’ in 2012, it is not only their games with Celtic that give the SPFL a big name fixture.
Bad blood exists with Aberdeen, who managed to beat Mark Warburton’s side at Pittodrie over the course of the weekend, in a fiercely contested 2-1 win.
No love is lost between the two clubs, with the Dons taking their first visit of Rangers in half a decade as the perfect example to poke fun at the club’s plight.

Indicative of the animosity the Dons have for their rivals, it’s a fairly brutal reminder of the current situation at Ibrox.
Where will Rangers finish in the table this season? Let us know below…
