Aberdeen Super Fan previews the Rangers game
This is part of a regular series from our panel of Super Fans on upcoming Rangers games. Ahead of Rangers’ game against Aberdeen in the SPFL, we caught up with Aberdeen Super Fan @DonsSupporters.
Aberdeen face Rangers in the Scottish Premiership tonight as the Gers look to move clear at the top of the table.
The Dons arrive at Ibrox with plenty of injury problems, and they haven’t had the greatest of starts sitting in eighth place when they are usually much higher.
However, this should still be a tough game for the Gers, who will have to be at their best to get a win.
We managed to catch up with Aberdeen Super Fan @DonsSupporters, who gave us their view of the game ahead of the match.
What have you made of Rangers’ start to the season?
Rangers have started the season well but not as well as last year which might make it a more competitive league.
What have you made of Aberdeen’s start?
Our initial start was good, but we have really struggled since our draw at Tynecastle.
Who should Rangers fear?
Ryan Hedges will be our main threat.
Who worries you in the Rangers team?
[Alfredo] Morelos is our biggest worry.
Who will win the title?
I think Rangers will win the title but will be closer than last year.
My heart for tonight says a draw, but with no Ramsay, Mackenzie, Gallagher, Considine and Devlin, we are threadbare in defence, so I fear the worst. [I] Imagine Scott Brown will be in central defence.
Our Aberdeen Super Fan also paid a nice tribute to Walter Smith.
Finally, deepest sympathies on Walter’s death, he was a great, decent gentleman.
We thank @DonsSupporters for taking the time to provide us with answers at very short notice, given that the game is tonight.
It is clear that the Dons are scared of Morelos after he bagged his 100th goal for the club at the weekend, and their defensive options seem very limited.
If it is true that Brown will have to play at centre-back, then the Gers could have a field day.
However, despite Aberdeen’s indifferent start, they always pose a threat, and this should be a tough game on an emotional evening at Ibrox after the passing of Smith on Tuesday.
This will be the first game since the former Gers boss died, and we are expecting an emotional and intense atmosphere as the Gers look to pay their respects to one of Ibrox’s greatest.
Once again, a huge thanks to @DonsSupporters, and we hope they enjoy the match
