The stage is set at Pittodrie this lunchtime as Rangers and Aberdeen go through their final preparations for a massive clash that could well decide who finishes second and who ends up in third.
The afternoon has started positively for Gers fans, who are delighted with the team selection from Pedro Caixinha.
The Portuguese has made two changes with Barrie McKay and Andy Halliday dropping out to be replaced by Kenny Miller and Jon Toral.
It’s a bold decision to drop McKay but after a run of poor performances it seems as if it’s a popular one, with most fans reckoning he deserves a spell on the bench. Time will tell whether the Gers have enough creativity to break down Aberdeen, but at least the new Rangers boss knows he has the backing of supporters.
Creativity may be the least of their problems as injuries mean the inexperienced duo of Myles Beerman and David Bates start again in defence, up against one of the most potent attacking outfits in the division.
Ahead of the 12:30 kick-off, supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on today’s Rangers team…
McKay being dropped is good in my opinion. He gets bullied too easily in big games. We need someone who'll give there all.

McKay sadly deserved to get dropped after the last two games. Has been such an infuriating player this season.

McKay dropped. Bold move. I know we don't have much of a team but I think it's justified. Guys not shown much the last few games or fight.

McKay deserves to be dropped in my opinion. I'd have liked to have seen Dodoo get a start instead though

Mixed feelings about McKay, he's not been at his best, but he's arguably our only creative attacking player.

it's about time mckay was on the bench, bring him on at 69 minutes and watch him score another screamer https://t.co/U9ZNapt26R
