THE LAST MATCH – VS QUEEN OF THE SOUTH

FAST FACTS

  • Rangers have met St Mirren on 114 occasions on league duty at home, winning 86 times, drawing 20 and losing on eight occasions. In the process, Gers have scored 296 goals and conceded 84.
  • Rangers are defending a 12-match unbeaten run in league matches against St Mirren at Ibrox, having won 10 and drawn two of the games dating back to April 1992 when a 4-0 home victory kicked off the sequence and also secured ‘Four-In-A-Row’. St Mirren’s last success came in November of the previous year when a Kevin McGowne goal secured a 1-0 win for the Buddies.
  • Despite only picking up one point in the process, St Mirren have scored in each of their last seven league visits to Ibrox, but have never scored more than once in a match since a 2-1 victory in January 1980 – 36 games ago.
  • Of the current squad, Kenny Miller is top marksman in games against St Mirren, having scored six goals, with five coming in one match in November 2000. However he has a long way to go to catch all-time top scorer against Saints, RC Hamilton, who netted on 21 occasions
  • Rangers’ biggest league victory over St Mirren came in December 1897 as RC Hamilton scored four and John McPherson got three as Gers ran out 9-0 winners. Saints’ best result came in May 1980 when a Doug Somner hat-trick helped the Buddies to a 4-1 victory at St Mirren Park.
  • The clubs served up no fewer than three 10-goal thrillers in league matches in the early years of the fixture. In October 1890, Rangers ran out 8-2 winners at Ibrox and followed that up with a 7-3 victory in Paisley the following February. The 7-3 scoreline was repeated in October 1926 at St Mirren Park with Geordie Henderson hitting a hat-trick and Jimmy Fleming netting a double.
