What channel is Rangers v Aberdeen on? Kick-off time, how to watch, referee and VAR officials

Rangers will aim to ease some pressure on manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst following the 3-0 midweek defeat at Napoli when they entertain Aberdeen at Ibrox on Saturday.

The Dutchman has endured a difficult time both domestically and in Europe with back-to-back 4-0 defeats to Celtic and Ajax last month followed by unconvincing performances throughout October, including dropping Premiership points at home to Livingston in a 1-1 draw last weekend and an embarrassing 7-1 Champions League annihilation at the hands of Liverpool that leaves them facing the prospect of finishing with the worst group stage record in the competition’s history.

With Rangers now four points behind Celtic in the title race, and his team booed off the park in each of their last two home matches, Van Bronckhorst cannot afford any slip-up against an Aberdeen side who are enjoying a resurgence this season under Jim Goodwin.
