Derek McInnes has put Steven Gerrard in his place after the rookie Ibrox boss claimed that Aberdeen only play their A Game against the Dons.
Gerrard made the accusation this morning as he looked ahead to Aberdeen’s visit to Ibrox on Sunday with the Dons aiming for their fourth win of the season in Glasgow.
While Gerrard and his apologists claim that the gap is closing two cup KO’s from Aberdeen suggest that if anything the Ibrox side are even further away from their first senior trophy.
McInnes has been in charge at Pittodrie for six years and is perfectly placed to asses the challenge from Ibrox.
“We raise our game every game, they shouldn’t flatter themselves,” the Aberdeen boss told the Daily Record.
“We don’t always get the results, our home form could have been better this season, especially the second half, but our away form has been second to none.
“We have had six years of solid work and we have raised our game time and again against every opponent. Naturally it is a big game against Rangers, our players will enjoy it.”
Last season Graeme Murty was unbeaten in four matches against Aberdeen, taking 10 points out of 12 in the SPFL. In six matches head to head with McInnes, Gerrard has won once, drawn two and suffered three defeats.
