Sky Sports pundits predict Rangers clash v Aberdeen
Sky Sports’ Scottish football pundits Ian Crocker and Andy Walker have both offered predictions for the upcoming Rangers match against Aberdeen at Ibrox on Wednesday.
In their column on the Sky Sports website, both men differ on not only the outcome of the game, but on who the key player in the match will be.
Ian Crocker has predicted a 2-2 draw, and his key player is new Gers signing Jamie Murphy, who claims that it is “good to have him back in Scotland”.
Andy Walker has predicted a 2-1 win for the Light Blues, and his key player is fellow new signing Russell Martin, who he thinks will be “a much needed dominant figure” in Rangers defence.
The match could have a huge bearing in the battle for second place in the Scottish Premiership table, the Dons are currently three points ahead but a Gers victory would take them above Aberdeen on goal difference.
The teams have met twice already this season, with the Gers winning both matches.
Two goals from James Tavernier and one from Carlos Pena won the day in a 3-0 victory at Ibrox, whilst goals from Danny Wilson and Josh Windass helped ten man Rangers win 2-1 at Pittodrie.
The game is the first to played between the teams since Dons manager Derek McInnes turned down the opportunity to become the new boss at Ibrox.
