Match information and TV details for Scottish Premiership match at Ibrox

Matches between Rangers and Aberdeen always carry an added edge and that will certainly be the case on Tuesday night as Neil Warnock makes his Scottish football bow at Ibrox.

The 75-year-old Yorkshireman has been appointed interim Aberdeen manager until the end of the season and his first assignment will see him come up against Philippe Clement’s title hopefuls on a night were Rangers could overtake Celtic at the top of the cinch Premiership.

A three-goal margin of victory will be required for the home side to do so, but Warnock, who replaces Barry Robson following his dismissal last week with the club eighth in the table, will be hoping to get his tenure off to a positive start after the encouraging 1-1 draw against Celtic overseen by caretaker coach Peter Leven at the weekend.

Aberdeen remain unbeaten in the league against Rangers this season with a 3-1 victory at Ibrox on September 30, which proved the final nail in the coffin of Michael Beale’s Rangers tenure, followed up with a 1-1 draw at Pittodrie on November 26 which brought an end to Clement’s winning start.

However, Rangers emerged victorious in the most recent meeting between the pair with a 1-0 win at Hampden in the Viaplay Cup semi-final on December 17.
