Friday 15 December
Ibrox Stadium is the destination for Saints tomorrow afternoon as they take on Rangers in the Scottish Premiership and Saints will be desperate to bounce back from their disappointing 3-0 home defeat to Aberdeen with a strong showing in Glasgow.
Despite Wednesday’s loss, Saints are still within touching distance of Motherwell and Hearts above and a positive result at Ibrox could easily see Saints climb back into the top six. Rangers, meanwhile, are in a rich vein of form at the moment with four consecutive wins under interim manager Graeme Murty seeing the club reach second place in the league standings.
Saints will be looking to right the wrongs from when both sides met earlier this season when a Steven Anderson red card contributed to Saints’ downfall in mid-October when Rangers ran out 3-0 winners at McDiarmid Park.
Tommy Wright says; “We approach the game like we always do. We approach it in a positive manner and to try and win the game but we do understand that when you go to places like Celtic and Rangers sometimes you don’t have much of the ball but we’re going there to make it difficult as we can for them.
“I think overall we just have to make sure that the players are fully concentrated for 90 minutes because too often this season we’ve given cheap goals away.”
