Rangers travel to St. Mirren for a Scottish Premier League game on Wednesday, as they look to continue what has been a near-flawless season.

Steven Gerrard's team have dropped only four points from 20 league games, and are 16 points ahead of Celtic, albeit having played three games more.

In their last game, on Boxing Day, Rangers beat Hibernian 1-0 at home thanks to a first-half goal from Ianis Hagi.

St. Mirren, however, will take hope from the fact that they are the only Scottish team to beat Rangers this season.

A couple of weeks ago, Rangers went down 3-2 to St. Mirren in the Scottish League Cup.

However, St. Mirren's league form has been anything but inspiring this season. They have only 21 points from 17 games played, compared to Rangers' 56 points from 20 games.

In their last game though, they did manage a win, beating nine-man Ross County 2-0.
