After a hard fought away win at Aberdeen, the Gers have kicked off their SPL season perfectly. With Celtic pushing for a 10th consecutive league title this season, Rangers are going to need plenty more performances like they put in on Saturday.

Next up for Steven Gerrard’s men is their first home test of the season against St Mirren. The Gers will need to make Ibrox a fortress this season if they want to have a chance of stopping Celtic’s record breaking 10 title wins. Two wins on the spin would be a statement of intent and our Scottish Premier League prediction is leaning towards Gers success on Sunday.

The current constitution

Rangers Look Set For Title Challenge

Numerous Scottish Premier League predictions last season tipped Rangers to run Celtic close. And while they were undone by the ruling to award the title to Celtic due to Coronavirus, Gerrard’s men are looking even more formidable this time around. The Gers come into Sunday’s fixture after 4 pre-season friendly wins including tough opposition like Lyon and Nice.

In their last outing before the enforced break, Gerrard’s men were beaten 1 – 3 at home by a strong Bayer Leverkusen side during their Europa League round of 16 tie. This result did not seem to dampen their spirits for their league fixture against Aberdeen on their return as they came out on top 1 – 0. The Gers seem to be in good form going into their first home fixture of the season.

St Mirren Unlikely To Rollover For Rangers

St Mirren managed to get 2 pre-season friendlies under their belt during the covid-19 pandemic. The Saints had a mixed bag of results for their friendlies as they were beaten by Hamilton and managed to scrape a draw against Hibernian. Not the best of starts for Jim Goodwin and his men.

The Saints put their pre-season woes to rest with a hard fought win over Livingston in their first game of the season. To make it even sweeter, new signing Richard Tait scored in the first half which ultimately gave the Saints a 1 – 0 win on the day.

Head to Head

Rangers and St Mirren typically play out a hard fought battle that is not shy of seeing a few yellow and red cards. The Gers have dominated this fixture for years and have won their last five games against the Saints in all competitions. The Saints have failed to register a goal against Rangers in their last five fixtures as well, a record that stretches back to when both teams were in the Championship. St Mirren will not have likely forgotten their 4 – 0 battering by Rangers at the start of 2019. The Saints fans will be hoping their team’s attack is firing on all cylinders on Sunday.

Our Betting Tip for Today

Our Scotland Premiership prediction for this weekend’s fixture between Rangers and St Mirren is an easy one. We really can’t see anything other than a comfortable Rangers win at the Ibrox.

Rangers to ease past St Mirren

Our Scotland Premiership prediction for this fixture is fairly straightforward, as it is hard to look at the history of this encounter and not think that Rangers won’t come out on top. With a much stronger squad and a hungry manager in Steven Gerrard, it is unlikely that St Mirren will walk away with any points from the Ibrox on Sunday. While there are transfer rumours flying around about Alfredo Morelos, this shouldn’t disrupt what is already a strong squad.

If past encounters are anything to go by, then you can expect a resolute Rangers defence on Sunday. That is why our Scottish Premier League prediction for this fixture leans towards a comfortable win for Rangers. In light of this, our betting tip for the fixture is a Rangers win and for winger Ryan Kent to continue his scoring start to the campaign. Betway have Rangers to win and Kent to score anytime at 3.00 which is a decent shout given that the Gers’ strikeforce of Morelos and new signing Kemar Roofe should keep the Buddies defence well occupied.
