Game of the day in the SPL and expect a feisty affair as is the norm with this fixture.
How will Stevie G's boys get on in their opening league match ? Can they add to the Dons horrific record against the Old Firm or will the reds have a new confidence after taking mighty Burnley to extra time ?

Dons have a couple of injuries and will be the more fatigued of the 2 sides having played the extra time, but I'm not sure that will have too much of an impact this early in the season.

I layed Aberdeen at 4/9 yesterday and thats my main bet. My logic is simple - they have a horrific record in these fixtures and they haven't improved their squad since last season (looks a little weaker actually with their best player now back at Celtic). Rangers on the other hand have surely improved with 10 new additions and a manager with a bit of drive and grit.

For value bets, I'm on Katic to score anytime at 16/1 (Billys and Sportsbook), he's scored 3 already in pre-season and looks dangerous with free kicks (can see a few of them today).

Overs in the cards looks nailed on, but Shinnie stands out at 11/8 for a yellow.

Rangers look a great bet today.  Aberdeen don't do playing well against Rangers.  Rangers have got stronger this season as well.  An away win for me.
Report milla446 August 5, 2018 12:05 PM BST
Agree with most of that Plat, Rangers look a good bet and if I was neutral I'd be all over it.

Must take issue with your best player comment though, Christie barely turned up for us after New Year. 5th best, maybe, at a push. No great loss. Too soon to say if the new guys will weaken us but the lad Ferguson, despite the bloodline, looks like he's going to be a star. Still need a striker badly which is why I fear for us today.

What price a blue pen today?

if we can't sell windass, we should just give him away.

he never passes to players in better position because he wants to score himself.

he's a liability and lafferty isn't the answer.

Not had the benefit of seeing any replays or highlights yet.

At full speed I thought Ball wasn't the last man and the keeper and defenders were back on the line. I thought there was a rule that if it's a pen then no red card. Maybe I made that up. At the time I actually thought he'd given a free kick to us rather than a pen going by the amount of whining the Rangers players were doing. Windass went down very easily I thought.

Didn't see the Morelos one at all, but if he did kick McKenna then he deserved his red, it's nae the 1970s any more.

Yet again we were completely rotten against Rangers. A nice Brucie Bonus to get something at the end. The lad did more in 20 minutes than May's done for a year. He'd better be starting next week.

And an utterly classless, disrespectful post match interview from the whining Scouse git. Class above, aye? Playing for 0-1, you get what you deserve.

Aberdeen were terrible. Gleeson and Forrester look like they add nothing to that midfield. Cosgrove is the new Stockley big lump who'll never score. Surprised no one has tried to sign Shinnie he's like two players in the midfield whenever I've seen him.

Windass dived for the penalty. Tiny tug on the jersey and he launched himself to the floor. Blatant cheating. Gerrard's interview was a total embarrassment. He should get slaughtered in the media but no chance he will.
Report MC Roller August 5, 2018 9:03 PM BST
Just shows you how bad things are when the biggest cheer of the day was when the completely past it May clattered Jack. The crowd wanted another clattering but I wanted a goal, and I've no idea how we got one, must have been a great thrill for the kid who got it. No doubt he'll be dropped as the clown will keep faith with the useless neeps.

A few fans are saying very lucky today but they don't care. They should care though because that was pathetic against ten men, we should have lost. I find it really depressing watching the lump it to the useless neep constantly. Fans seem satisfied watching mediocre displays but it kills me watching that embarrassing crap when you think of times gone by.

Players should be inspired when putting on the jersey with our history, we used to be feared, now they just laugh at our hopeless tactics. No craft, no energy bar one or two, just the same long ball again and again. It is not good enough, we are miles off what I would call competitive. The manager has been in the job a fair while now, he just doesn't cut it for me and I wish he was replaced with someone who has a clue.

As for the Gerrard interview, I never watched it, not interested either. I'm more worried about our own problems, looks like another painful season in store. Sad
Report milla446 August 5, 2018 9:27 PM BST
Aye, fully appreciate you were a man short Stewarty and you were the better team today, but going by what Gerrard was saying it was 0-1 going on 0-5 or 0-6. Did Rangers have a shot on goal after the penalty? Struggling to remember if Lewis had anything to do second half. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, Sportscene isn't on for ages yet.

Not inclined to write off the Irish boys just yet, disrupted preseason and starting against Rangers isn't a gentle bedding in period. Give them a month to get used to the pace of the game.

With regard to McInnes, I'd settle for us playing the same style of game against the Glasgow teams that we do against teams like Kilmarnock or Hamilton. That'd be a start. "Game management" really gets on my t1ts.
Report MC Roller August 5, 2018 10:33 PM BST
Maybe I expect too much, I'd just like to see us keep it on the deck more, play a bit quicker, show some skill instead of the lazy option. A bit more of that and if results still don't go our way you won't see me complain as much.
Report akabula August 6, 2018 8:03 AM BST
I thought there was a rule that if it's a pen then no red card.

The rule is that if a penalty is given then the punishment to the player should be restricted to a yellow card if he has made a genuine attempt to win the ball.

He made no attempt to win the ball so should have seen red.

morelos should never have been sent off just for lifting his leg in the direction of an aberdeen player after he had been assaulted twice by that player.

he obviously never made any contact or the player would still be rolling around on the deck now.

funny how the linesman never saw the two assaults on morelos yet he saw morelos lift his leg in the direction of the player.

Unfortunately for Rangers there aren't any more prominent lodge members in the SFA so its now a level playing field as regards referees. Its like a person in a job who has been getting away with doing little for years, then moaning when he has to do his actual job when a new boss comes in.
