David Weir gives verdict on must-win Scottish Cup clash for Rangers

Former Rangers captain and assistant manager David Weir thinks the Gers will be facing a “crisis” if they fail to beat Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup.

Despite the added pressure, Weir is confident Steven Gerrard will understand what is needed ahead of the potentially “season-defining” clash.
“At Rangers, the next game is always the most important,” Weir said, as quoted by STV.
“Win the next game and the picture changes.

“If Rangers win at Aberdeen, the picture is rosier, if they lose, it is crisis and I’m sure Steven understands that.
“It can be season-defining, if Rangers win this game and get a trophy in the cabinet it can help build momentum going forward.”

Gerrard’s side were recently at Pittodrie on league duty – running out 4-2 winners – and will be hoping for a similar result.
Before that though, there’s the visit of Dundee to Ibrox on Wednesday for Gerrard’s side to take care of.
With Celtic right points ahead in the league, the Gers can’t afford to drop any points to Jim McIntyre’s side.
