Rangers can get Steven Gerrard off to a perfect start at Pittodrie
Hosts Aberdeen have injury doubts and a suspension
Sky Sports Football, 1pm Sunday
Both sides faced gruelling Europa League games on Thursday, but while the Dons took England's seventh-best team Burnley into extra-time before going down, it must have taken a lot out of them.
Derek McInnes' squad is thin enough as it is and he has injury doubts and a suspension to deal with.
Gerrard has bulked up Rangers through the spine of their team and they will need that in a fixture that usually turns nasty. The Ibrox side can get Gerrard off to the perfect start.

The Gers will be without the injured Declan John, Lee Wallace, Jordan Rossiter and Graham Dorrans.
Aberdeen took just one point out of 12 against Rangers last season.
