St Johnstone vs Rangers Match Preview
Rangers must have received a big boost from their dramatic comeback victory against Braga in the Europa League on Thursday and should continue the good work at St Johnstone.
Trailing 2-0 entering the final quarter of their round-of-32 first-leg match, Steven Gerrard’s side rallied brilliantly to win 3-2 with on-loan Genk youngster Ianis Hagi scoring twice to further enhance the promising start he has made to his time in Scotland.
The Gers travel to Portugal this coming week to try and book their place in the last 16, but first they make the shorter journey to Perth for a second meeting this term with St Johnstone – the Ibrox clash was postponed due to the League Cup semi-finals and has yet to be rescheduled.
That means Rangers have a game in hand on their arch-rivals and league leaders Celtic, of whom they are 10 points adrift following a much less convincing return from the winter break with Gerrard expressing disappointment at his team’s attitude in certain games.
And they may not find it easy against St Johnstone, who began the season slowly but have really picked up since the end of October with their current spell representing their best form of the campaign.
Ultimately, Rangers are expected to be too good here but their margin of success is likely to be much less emphatic than the 4-0 triumph they enjoyed in September when Saints were struggling.
