Wounded ‘Gers To Edge It

Live on Skysports 4: Sun 12.30: Rangers are Paddy Power’s 2/5 favourites to get the better of St Mirren but they’ll have to work for the points.

The recriminations from Rangers’ midweek defeat at Celtic are still ongoing as Walter Smith’s men head to St Mirren but the ‘Gers clash with the Buddies is likely to be more of a sedate affair and another red card, to add to the three shown to Rangers players on Wednesday, looks unlikely at 3/1 with 888Sport.

Smith will be grateful that the dismissed trio aren’t suspended for the Paisley tussle but the ‘Gers have enough players missing through injury to make this fixture tougher than it might have been. Nevertheless it’s just 2/5 at best with Paddy Power for an away win and the ‘Gers should eventually justify that favouritism against a St Mirren side desperately short of goals.

Danny Lennon’s Buddies have drawn a blank in seven out of their last ten SPL outings while Rangers have kept six clean sheets in eight league games so it’s worth a few quid on an away win ‘to nil’ at 13/10 with Coral.

Punters can take more of a risk by backing Rangers at 6/1 with Hills to notch twice without reply and in the handicaps Betfred make them 17/20 to overhaul a goal start, to win by two clear goals.

The hosts however, will make Smith’s patched-up side work for the points and it would be no surprise if it was goalless at the break (9/4, Ladbrokes), especially as the ‘Gers have plenty of injury headaches in attack. With that in mind, the opener is 10/11 with Paddy Power to be scored after the 22nd minute and Stan James are offering 7/2 for the visitors to come out on top after a drawn first half.

Meanwhile, Rangers lengthy casualty list might open the door for David Healy to get his second start for the club. The Northern Ireland striker is 4/1 with Coral to break the deadlock at St Mirren Park and bet365 offer 6/5 for Healy to grab his second Rangers goal at any stage. Despite the threat posed by Healy though, it’s a match that looks set to produce less than three goals (11/10, ).

Aberdeen are finding goals hard to come by at the moment, particularly on the road and they won’t find it particularly easy on Monday to break down Dundee United, who have been defending pretty solidly of late. A high scoring affair looks unlikely then at Tannadice, where the two sides are 4/6 with Betdaq to share fewer than three goals and the Terrors are 11/10 favourites.

Peter Houston’s men should have the edge on home soil and they’re 13/5 with bet365 to shade it by one goal, while Stan James rate them at 7/1 to register a 1-0 triumph and David Goodwillie is a 9/2 chance at Totesport to end a four-match run without a goal by opening the scoring.

Recommended Bets:
Rangers to beat St Mirren ‘to nil’ – 13/10 (Coral)
The first goal in Rangers v St Mirren to be scored after the 22nd minute – 10/11 (Paddy Power)
