Last time Rangers and Aberdeen met, the Gers ran out comprehensive winners at Ibrox, romping to a 5-0 win over Derek McInnes’ side in September.
Aberdeen are in much better form this time around though after winning four of their last five games and a trip to Pittodrie is always a challenge for the Gers.
Picking up three points tonight is crucial in the race for the title and would be the ideal preparation for Sunday’s cup final.
Gers fans on Twitter were generally happy with Gerrard’s selection but there was some real concern over Barisic’s absence ahead of Sunday.
Here are some of the best comments from Gers fans on Twitter after Gerrard’s starting XI was confirmed:
Strong team. I would have left Morelos & Jack on the bench. Where is Barisic? 🤔
