Aberdeen prepare to entertain rangers at Pittodrie Stadium on Sunday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 44 of the 128 previous games, with the Dons winning just 35.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Pittodrie Stadium was earlier this season, as the visitors ran out 0-2 winners in a Scottish League Cup match to end Aberdeen's unbeaten run. However, the Dons can take comfort from the fact that the two previous league meetings at Pittodrie were comfortable draws.
