History of the Rangers v Aberdeen fixture

Rangers prepare to entertain Aberdeen at Ibrox Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Gers are clearly on top, having won 83 and lost only 25 of the 138 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Ibrox Stadium was less than a year ago, in April 2010, with Rangers running out comfortable 3-1 winners in a Scottish Premier match.
