Dec 3: Scottish Football Preview

MrF_Aberdeen

WITH the possibility Rangers can drop down to fourth in the Premiership on Saturday Scottish firm McBookie.com are asking where they will finish in the league.

At the moment a second place is still favourite at 5-4 but that does make them odds on to finish further down the table. They are 15-8 for third, 2-1 for fourth and 33-1 for fifth or below.

Paul Petrie, McBookie.com spokesman, said: “There is no chance Rangers will win the league now and they have a serious fight on their hands for the runners-up spot. Indeed there is a possibility they won’t even be in the top three.”

Today Rangers are at home to Aberdeen and they say records are there to be broken – and Aberdeen will never have a better chance to end 25 years of misery at Ibrox.

That’s how long it is since the Dons tasted victory but six days after losing the Betfred Cup Final at Hampden they can enjoy their return to Glasgow today.

My Super Single in Wednesday’s Daily Record was Hearts draw no bet against Rangers and would have been the Jambos to win at 2-1 if it hadn’t been for the Robbie Neilson scenario.

I argued Gers shouldn’t be favourites at Tynecastle and they were well beaten. In fact apart from a late flurry when Joe Garner went close twice they never turned up and Mark Warburton described his side’s display as “unacceptable”.

Aberdeen need to improve on their showing against Celtic but on the evidence of Wednesday have little to fear.

Bookies have again made Rangers favourites at a best 5-4 with McBookie while the Dons are as big as 12-5 at Paddy Power. That allows me to back the Dons at 6-4 draw no bet or 8-11 at bet365 no to lose.

It was 2-1 Aberdeen at Pittodrie and before the cup final loss the Dons had been in decent form.

Another bet worth considering is Aberdeen to score 2+ at 6-5 with Coral while James Maddison, who netted a last-gasp winner in the last meeting, is 7-2 at Paddy Power.

Celtic have recorded eight clean sheets in a row and are 21-20 at McBookie to win to nil at Motherwell.

There’s no sign of Brendan Rodgers’s men slipping up and they are no bigger than 2-9 at Marathonbet to take home the points.

I suggested Tom Rogic as first scorer at 9-1 against Aberdeen and today will be on Erik Sviatchenko to score at 19-2 with William Hill as he is due one.

The other Premiership games look tough to call but one bet to like is over 2.5 goals at Ross County v Hearts at 9-10 with Marathonbet. All five meetings in Dingwall have gone that way as have both sides’ matches in four of their last five outings.

In the Championship take Falkirk at 8-15 with Ladbrokes and William Hill against a St Mirren side still looking for their first league win.

At Palmerston two sides in disarray meet. Queen of the South will be hurting after a Scottish Cup defeat at Albion Rovers denied them a money-spinning tie against Celtic.

They aim to bounce back against Dumbarton who were lucky to earn a replay with junior side Bonnyrigg last week. Queens should bounce back with a win and are 7-10 at William Hill.

Rovers could brought back to earth at home to Livingston who are 6-5 at Marathonbet to beat a side that may been over-celebrating.

Best bet in League Two could be Edinburgh City at 11-8 with McBookie not to lose at Arbroath. They may be bottom but have gone eight without defeat and held their rivals 3-3 back in October.

In the Scottish Cup back Morton -1 at 2-5 with Coral at Ayrshire junior side Beith and take a chance on Lowland League leaders East Kilbride at 9-5 with bet365 not to lose at Stranraer.

    As you said Paul Aberdeen a team that’s not won at Ibrox for 25 years and we go into this having not played any of the other 3 top sides at home so far Aberdeen away Celtic away and Hearts away , We are undefeated at home with 4 wins ,3 draws scoring 10 and 3 goals against , we ‘ve Aberdeen today and Hearts next week at home these two games at home will see how far we’ve come as they’ll come out and attack not like the other teams that sit in and hit us on the brake , if the boss would learn to move Tavernier into midfield and NI lad at RB we would have a defender helping out

    6/5 Rangers Win

      Like Johnb I fear you’re betting with your heart.
      I watched the last two Rangers’ game live on TV and was totally unimpressed.
      But I’m not confident enough to go with the Aberdeen win as you see.
      Rangers have to improve on Wednesday or they will lose – Aberdeen have to do better than Sunday or they will lose.
      And you’re right about Tavernier – great going forward but can’t defend.

        I’m not as confident as you @mal c so i’m not betting this one. Maybe Rangers rt7 corners. I was as unimpressed as you mr f with Gers last 2 games and my biggest concern is Warburton is blind to the defensive frailties of Tav and Kiernon. However Aberdeen have choked so often in front of a packed Ibrox crowd and joe dodoo is starting to find his scoring boots so i think it could be a good game and maybe o2.5mgs.

          Aberdeen’s bottle has to be questioned but in those 25 years with no wins this will be the worst Rangers side they’ll have faced.

      Mal c i should have had your confidence and bet on Gers. Aberdeen bottled it Glasgow again.

        Maybe they did but fair play to Warburton who dropped Tavernier and brought in Hodson as some had wanted him to do.

    A Rangers man myself it defo is one of the worst teams as far as fight goes.Lets look at Aberdeen tho they have had a few howlers this season.The final last week they never turned up,Hamilton played them off the park and they hardly deserved to beat Gers up north.Warburton seems to try a Joker trump every big game he needs to find a settled 11. Im with MAL c I would get Dobson in the team and move TAV forward.
