Scottish Football: Mr Fixit looks to land a fourth winning weekend in five

THE DAILY RECORD’S Mr Fixit (@mrfixitstips) picks out his three best bets in Scotland this weekend, chasing a fourth winning weekend in five.

Rangers v Aberdeen | Saturday 15:00

They say records are there to be broken – and Aberdeen will never have a better chance to end 25 years of misery at Ibrox.

That’s how long it is since the Dons tasted victory but six days after losing the Betfred Cup Final at Hampden they can enjoy their return to Glasgow today.

Rangers were well beaten at Hearts in midweek – apart from a late flurry when Joe Garner went close twice, they never turned up – and Mark Warburton described his side’s display as “unacceptable”.

Aberdeen need to improve on their showing against Celtic but on the evidence of Wednesday have little to fear.

Bookies have again made Rangers favourites at a best 5/4 while the Dons are as big as 12/5 at Paddy Power. That allows me to back the Dons at 6/4 (Marathon) draw no bet.

It was 2-1 Aberdeen at Pittodrie and before the cup final loss the Dons had been in decent form.

Ross County v Hearts | Saturday 15:00

Hearts head to the Highlands without a manager after Robbie Neilson took the MK Dons job, signing off at Tynecastle with that impressive beating of Rangers.

Youth coaches Jon Daly and Andy Kirk will take the team today and the bet I like is Over 2.5 Goals at 9/10 with Marathon.

All five meetings in Dingwall have gone that way, as have both sides’ matches in four of their last five outings.

Albion Rovers v Livingston | Saturday 15:00

Rovers set up a lucrative cup tie against Celtic by taking the scalp of Championship side Queen of the South in midweek but could brought back to earth today.

League One leaders Livi are worth taking at 6/5 at Marathon to beat a side that may been over-celebrating.

Livi have won their last five away games in all competitions and have a talented squad full of experience at a higher level.

Best Bets 

Rangers v Aberdeen – Aberdeen draw no bet (6/4 Marathon)

Ross County v Hearts – Over 2.5 Goals (9/10 Marathon)

Albion Rovers v Livingston – Livingston to win (6/5 Marathon)
