BBC Sportscene pundits predict result of St Mirren clash v Rangers

Rangers will face St Mirren away from home in their next Scottish Premiership clash on Sunday afternoon.

The Gers are heading into this game on the back of a 2-0 victory against Brondby in their Europa League clash on Thursday, and Steven Gerrard’s side will be full of confidence.

St Mirren are in very good form at the moment, and the game promises to be a cracking contest.

Ahead of the match, BBC Sportscene pundit duo – Amy Irons and Partick Thistle defender Richard Foster – have predicted their outcome for this game.

Irons feels that the Gers will snatch a 2-1 victory, while Foster has suggested that it will be a 2-2 draw.

Mutual respect

Ahead of the game, St Mirren boss Jim Goodwin has suggested that some of the criticisms Rangers have faced are ‘over the top’.

There have been suggestions that Rangers have not been able to match their high standards of last season (which is true), but Goodwin has claimed that the Gers are doing just fine at the moment.

Likewise, Gerrard has spoken highly of Goodwin ahead of the match, saying he has got the team organised, and that they are difficult to beat.

St Mirren are undefeated in their last six games in the Scottish Premiership and have are heading into this game on the back of three consecutive wins.

In contrast, Rangers are undefeated in their last seven games in the SPFL, but they have dropped points away from home. In their last league game, they drew 1-1 against Hearts.

The title race in Scotland is very tight this season, with the likes of Hearts, Dundee United, Celtic and Hibernian being within touching distance of Rangers.
