On Sunday Rangers head to Aberdeen to take on one of our biggest rivals for the league title, or at least for second place. The atmosphere of an Aberdeen v Rangers game is described as toxic. Some supporters say that playing Aberdeen has actually become more toxic than an Old Firm match. To try and find out why, I went back into the history of Aberdeen FC.
It's far from easy to win the Scottish Championship. Ally McCoist couldn't do it. Neither could Stuart McCall or Alan Stubbs. Highly thought of young managers such as Alex Rae and Ian Murray struggled with their teams and even the 'remarkable human being' Neil Lennon isn't guaranteed to win it this year either. After all, tonight's visitors Queen of the South are ahead of them in the table and the Leith side also travel to Dumfries on Saturday.
The cameras pressed against the glass, flickering in their eagerness to get a glimpse. Barton was uninterested and instead has his attention squarely focused on his smartphone as the car slowly rolls away from Ibrox, red brick reflected in the car window. This was the coup of the summer; the transfer that would take us to the next level, solving our much maligned defensive problems.

Let’s be honest from the outset. In the same way Rangers deserved to beat Celtic earlier in the competition, Hibernian dominated us in Saturday’s Scottish Cup final. For the majority of the game they were a yard quicker, they worked incredibly hard and, unlike the previous five games this season, were the better team by a fair distance. Ergo, as I cautioned in my match preview on Friday, there was no shock here in an exciting final that mirrored the free-scoring games between the clubs already this season. In the same way we were emotional in April, generations of Hibs fans must be beyond delighted and, after almost 115 years of disappointment, no-one can deny them in their moment of glory.
