First and foremost, St Johnstone have just one win to their name to boast of in their last eight clashes all together, with that victory coming in the League Cup. The home team have not been able to get things going for them and have also lost without finding the back of the net in their previous Premiership game here.

Eight of the Saints last ten trips across competitions ended that way and this feels like further evidence for such a bet. However, we dont feel were in for a very one-sided contest at Ibrox and well now rather stick with a narrow occasion with few goals, where Under 2.5 Goals FT looks great value at 5/4 with BetVictor.

The home team have not been able to get things going for them and have also lost without finding the back of the net in their previous Premiership game here. First and foremost, St Johnstone have just one win to their name to boast of in their last eight clashes all together, with that victory coming in the League Cup.

The Saints are yet to win this season in the Premiership, with their last victory coming at the end of July. Rangers away form has been phenomenal, winning 5 of their last 7 away fixtures and drawing the other two. Were going to back Steven Gerrards men to win to nil here, with a final result of 3-0. Rangers have bounced back brilliantly from their Old Firm defeat at the start of the month and the fact theyve managed to win twice in a row is going to give them a lot of much-needed momentum going into a game against a very weakened St Johnstone side. St Johnstone has conceded 15 times in their last 5 matches, so they could be subject to another heavy defeat to the Gers.

The Old Firm Derby takes place on New Years Eve though, which could give Rangers a faint glimmer of hope in the title race. This leaves them 2nd in the Scottish Premiership, but they are a huge 14 points adrift of Celtic and the leaders have a game in hand. The visitors 1-0 win over Inverness CT on Friday made it four on the bounce for them, which includes victories over Aberdeen and Hearts as well.

Theyve struggled to convert and while Tommy Wright will be desperate to find a cure, getting it in Glasgow should prove no easy task. Saints have seen three losses to Celtic along the way, where the Bhoys knocked them out of FA Cup (5-0) and bagged six Premiership points beforehand (2-0 and 0-2), but also dropped the important points to Hearts (2-0) and Hamilton Academical (2-1).

Although James Tavernier missed a penalty early on in the first half, Sheyi Ojo eventually put the Gers ahead 10 minutes later and ultimately sealed their first 3 group stage points. Steven Gerrards side was dominating throughout most of the game. The Gers put on a solid performance against their Dutch opponents on what was an emotional night for both sets of fans after the death of their former player, Fernando Ricksen.
