周末的比賽。聖約翰斯通對陣格拉斯哥流浪者

現在只有國內的成功才能拯救格拉斯哥流浪者的賽季--並平息對經理喬瓦尼-范布隆克霍斯特的不安--在冠軍聯賽的恥辱之後。

格拉斯哥流浪者在小組賽中以最差的成績出局,這並不是他們在缺席12年後回到大時代時所想的創造歷史的經歷。

當格拉斯哥流浪者在英超聯賽中尋求喘息之機時,這塊磨刀石會不會懸而未決?周日,當范布隆克霍斯特帶着他的球隊在珀斯進行午間對決時,我們將開始找出答案。

格拉斯哥流浪者在上周末以4-1擊敗了阿伯丁,可以說是他們本賽季最好的表現--這是他們在10場聯賽中第五次淨勝4球--他們比上個賽季同一階段的表現好了2分。

然而,當時他們在積分榜上穩坐頭把交椅,領先凱爾特人4分--這一次他們落後4分,而且是一波未平一波又起。

儘管格拉斯哥流浪者自2010年以來在聖約翰斯通保持了15場不敗,但要想在聖約翰斯通取得勝利也不是一件容易的事。

卡勒姆-戴維森的球隊已經連續贏得了兩場比賽,連續三場比賽將與近四年前的壯舉相提並論。盼望已久的主場戰勝格拉斯哥流浪者的胡蘿蔔,為他們增添了額外的動力。

珀斯人已經顯示出他們有能力提高他們的比賽,對陣老牌公司的對手--他們給了凱爾特人一個巨大的驚嚇,然後在上個月在麥克迪亞米德公園球場屈服於一個第95分鐘的勝利。另一場引人入勝的比賽正在等待中。


Only domestic success can rescue Rangers' season now - and quell unrest over manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst - after Champions League humiliation.

Bombing out with the worst ever record in the group stage wasn't quite the history-making exploits Rangers had in mind when they made it back to the big time after a 12-year absence.

Will that millstone hang heavy as Rangers seek respite in the Premiership? We'll begin to find out on Sunday when Van Bronckhorst takes his team to Perth for a high-noon showdown.

Rangers turned in arguably their best performance of the season last weekend with a 4-1 shellacking of Aberdeen - the fifth time in 10 league games they have netted four - and they are two points better off than they were at the same stage last term.

However, back then they were sitting pretty at the top of the table and four points ahead of Celtic - this time they are four adrift and spluttering along in fits and starts.

Victory at St Johnstone is no gimme, despite Rangers having gone unbeaten there since 2010, a 15-game stretch.

Callum Davidson's men have strung together back-to-back wins and three in a row would match a feat last achieved almost four years ago. The carrot of doing it with a long-awaited home victory over Rangers adds extra incentive.

The Perth men have shown themselves capable of raising their game against Old Firm opposition - they gave Celtic an almighty fright before succumbing to a 95th-minute winner at McDiarmid Park last month. Another fascinating contest awaits.
