Rangers vs St. Mirren
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Sunday, 26 December 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Ibrox Stadium.
Rangers are running with the league for the second season in a row. Their next 3 points to progress further in the season lies at home against St. Mirren.
St. Mirren is now winless in over 2 months. If this run of disappointment carries on any further they are certain to enter the relegation scrap.
These two teams will lock horns at the Ibrox Stadium this Sunday afternoon in a Scottish Premiership fixture.
The managerial change in the middle of the season has not changed things much for the Teddy Bears. If anything the club has been more solid defensively under Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
James Tavernier’s penalty rescued 3 points for the Gers in their previous match against Dundee United at home. With this result, they are now 7 points clear of Celtic at the top of the league.
The club has now won all points available for the taking in their last 8 league fixtures.
Joseph Shaughnessy’s 87th minute equaliser bagged the Saints a point at home in their preceding fixture.
With 3 points through draws in their last 5 league fixtures, the club is 9th in the league with 18 points to their tally.

Rangers vs St. Mirren Prediction
There is little speculation regarding the winner of a fixture when a side on an eight match winning streak in the league, who are undefeated at home since March 2020 takes on a side that is winless in 9 league matches.
To add that the hosts have kept a clean sheet in five consecutive fixtures and should do the same against a side that has scored just three goals in 7 matches.
The Light Blues has scored less than 3 goals in 4 of their last 5 fixtures, it is unlikely we see more than 2 goals in this fixture.
