Aberdeen and Rangers take to the pitch for the first time this year on Tuesday when they square off at the Pittodrie Stadium.

The visitors head into the game on a blistering nine-game winning streak in the Scottish Premiership and will look to extend their lead at the top of the table.

After seeing their last two games postponed due to COVID-19, Aberdeen will take to the pitch for the first time in three weeks on Tuesday.

They were last in action on December 26, when they secured a 2-1 victory over Dundee FC on home turf.

Aberdeen have won four of their last five games and this fine run has seen them rise to sixth place in the Premiership table.

Meanwhile, Rangers maintained their super run of results last time out as they claimed a 2-0 win over St. Mirren.

They have now won four games on the spin, while they are unbeaten in each of their last nine in all competitions.

With 51 points from 20 games, Rangers currently lead the way in the league table with a healthy six-point lead over second-placed Celtic.
