Rangers’ how-to-guide to beat Partick Thistle

Rangers’ win away to Aberdeen last Sunday felt like Pedro Caixinha arriving in Scotland to say: “I’m here to make Rangers the force they’re meant to be.”

There’s no doubting it’s been a poor season for the Ibrox loyal who have had to endure big derby defeats, mediocre draws and the odd shock loss here and there.

To do that, it all needs to start on Saturday when they host city rivals Partick Thistle at Ibrox. It may not be so easy though. They face a team currently on an eight game unbeaten run, which includes a trip to Celtic Park.
