Rangers may not have hit the heights of last season on a consistent basis but the Scottish champions are still top of the league with a four-point lead. Giovanni van Bronckhorst has led the team to four successive league wins, the latest a 2-0 win over Hearts at Tynecastle Park where the team displayed their game management qualities and ability to attack with pace.

As for St Johnstone. This season hasn’t been good. Saturday was a new low as they fell to the bottom of the table, not helped by some controversial refereeing. They do have two games in hand over tenth place Dundee who are two points ahead.

What happened the last time the teams met?

Rangers emerged from McDiarmid Park with a 2-1 win thanks to a long-range effort from James Tavernier in the final 15 minutes. The Ibrox side had to come from behind after Michael O’Halloran had put the home team in front.
