St Johnstone vs Rangers Match Preview
Rangers continue to have only a solitary blemish on their record this season and should continue their winning ways against St Johnstone.
Steven Gerrard’s side suffered their sole defeat in 15 matches so far this term when they lost the Old Firm clash 2-0 at home, and increasingly it looks as though the meetings with their fierce rivals Celtic will determine who captures the 2019-20 Scottish Premiership title.
The Gers must fancy their chances of claiming some silverware because they are also through to a League Cup quarter-final against Livingston and there will be the FA Cup to vie for in the new year, while their Europa League form suggests they could have a lengthy run in that competition despite being given a very tough group-stage draw.
Nevertheless, Rangers made the ideal start on Thursday when they won 1-0 at home to Feyenoord to show the defeat to Celtic just before the international break is well and truly out of their system.
St Johnstone, meanwhile, are struggling, with only one win to their credit so far which was at home to Brechin in the League Cup group phase, and they desperately need points on the board to avert the prospect of a relegation battle, let alone another bottom-half finish.
In fairness, Saints have drawn three of their last four games and narrowly lost the other, so they may well be competitive against Rangers but ultimately they look likely to end up with nothing against their in-form opponents.
