Aberdeen v Rangers Predictions

Aberdeen To win: there has to be something here for Aberdeen in this game of high importance for them. If they lose their shot at a top two finish really fades away. Rangers have been far from perfect on their travels this season and the Dons may have enough on home soil to, at the very least, avoid defeat. Aberdeen double chance.
