Barry Robson hits Rangers with ‘most money’ jibe ahead of clash v Aberdeen
Aberdeen boss Barry Robson has stoked the fire ahead of the clash against Rangers on Sunday (23 April) by explaining how difficult it is to play against teams with “the most money.”
The Gers travel to Pittodrie in a bid to keep the pressure on Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic.
The hosts meanwhile sit third in the league table thanks to a phenomenal run of six successive victories.
“I think it’s always difficult when you come up against a team who have got some outstanding football players,” said Robson, as quoted by Sky Sports Scotland.
“I think in any league when you see the teams who obviously do pay the most money, who have got the best players, you’ve got to find a way and you’ve got to get a balance right.”

It’s the last fixture for both clubs before the Scottish Premiership split, with their immediate league future not on the line having both secured a spot in the top six.
But pride definitely remains on the line in what has been a fiercely contested fixture over the years, with both clubs always up for the challenge when they cross paths.
Rangers will be desperate to keep the pressure on league leaders Celtic as much as they possibly can, while Aberdeen will be looking to further their chances of clinching third spot after recently leapfrogging Hearts.
The Dons will also be keen to continue their stunning unbeaten run, in what looks set to be a very exciting encounter at Pittodrie.
Rangers obviously find themselves in a more lucrative position than their opponents, with the Gers and Celtic continuously Scotland’s highest earners thanks to their European exploits.
It makes overcoming the two giants of Scottish football that bit more special, but Michael Beale will be relying on his stars to make sure an upset doesn’t happen.
In other Rangers news, one Gers player has reportedly gone from “best on earth” to “what on earth has happened,” and could leave Ibrox this summer.
