'Attacking threat' - Sky pundit tips Rangers star to shine v Aberdeen (not Miller or Morelos)
Sky Sports Scottish football experts Ian Crocker and Andy Walker have given their predictions ahead of tomorrow’s lunchtime clash between Aberdeen and Rangers at Pittodrie.
In their column on Sky Sports both men differ on the outcome of the result and the key man for the game.
Crocker is going for 2-1 to Rangers, and his key man for the game is James Tavernier, who “offers attacking threat” from his crosses and is capable of providing “plenty of assists”.
Walker is predicting a 1-1 draw, and his key man is Aberdeen’s Adam Rooney, who despite not being Aberdeen’s number one striker, “has the same amount of goals” as their man striker Stevie May.
The game between the sides is the second in a week, after Rangers beat Aberdeen 3-0 at Ibrox on Wednesday night thanks to two goals from James Tavernier and one from Carlos Pena.
Rumours are rife that it could be Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes’ last game in charge for the Dons, as Rangers are reportedly set to approach the Pittodrie club for permission to begin talks to make McInnes the next permanent manager at Ibrox.

Until that happens, Graeme Murty will continue in his role has interim manager at Rangers which includes tomorrow’s game.
