Rangers cemented their grip on the second spot with a 2-0 home win over Hearts last weekend. They were also helped by the Aberdeen’s 0-2 home defeat to Celtic.
Can Rangers continue in the same vein when they visit St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park on Tuesday?
It appears that the Saints have also picked up a bit of form in the recent weeks. The Saints come into this game on the back of a 2-0 home win over bottom-side Ross County. This win was preceded by a brave goalless draw at Celtic Park.
Thus, the Saints have picked up four points from two games following a run of four consecutive league defeats. However, they would need much more than that to trouble Rangers, who are second with 55 points, three points clear of Aberdeen in third.
Rangers have won their last four games in all competitions and have scored 15 goals in the process. The Gers have been brilliant on the road this, and they have picked up the majority of the points in away games. Hence, we back them to pick up three points in this fixture.
Both sides have played each other twice in the Premiership this season. Both games have ended in away wins. In the first game, Rangers claimed a 3-0 win at McDiarmid Park, but the Glasgow side lost 3-1 at Ibrox Stadium in December.
