Connor Goldson starts for Rangers against Aberdeen in Tuesday night’s clash at Pittodrie.

The defender has been out injured since October but comes straight back into Michael Beale’s starting line-up in place of John Lundstram for the Premiership encounter.

Other than it is pretty much the same as the 3-2 win over Hibs last week as the Ibrox club look to cut the gap at the top of the league with leaders Celtic not playing until tomorrow.

Allan McGregor starts in goals behind Tavernier, Sands, Goldson and Devine, Ryan Jack plays in midfield with Glen Kamara and Malik Tillman will be hoping to provide the ammunition for a front three of Kent, Fashion Sakala and Alfredo Morelos.

Third placed Aberdeen are looking to increase their lead over Hearts and cut the gap to Rangers to eight points with a win.

Goodwin’s men were just a few minutes away from taking a point from Celtic on Saturday until a late winner on the 87th minute.

But the manager was criticised for his defensive tactics in the game as they failed to register a single shot on target and led to club legend Willie Miller branding the performance “unacceptable”.

He makes two changes for the visit of Rangers with Liam Scales and Jayden Richardson both coming in for Jack MacKenzie and Matt Kennedy.

Aberdeen start with Roos in goals behind McCrorie, Shaw and Stewart, Richardson, Barron, Ramadani, Clarkson and Coulson in midfield behind Miovski and Duke up front.

The game kicks-off 8pm.
