Meanwhile, Aberdeen are looking to extend their run of six league matches without defeat and claim their ninth top-flight victory of the season.
It seemed as if Rangers' campaign could not get any better, but it certainly did just before the international break as Steven Gerrard's side thumped Hamilton Academical 8-0, the biggest win of Gerrard's reign.
Rangers are on a real high at the moment, although there was some disappointing news for them this week as defender George Edmundson and winger Jordan Jones were handed seven-game bans by the Scottish FA for breaking coronavirus protocols. The pair will be free to return to action for the match against St Mirren on December 30.
The Gers head into their home fixture with Aberdeen with a perfect record at Ibrox, winning all nine of their 2020-21 matches, scoring 27 goals and conceding just once against Galatasaray in October.
Rangers are unbeaten in six league meetings with Aberdeen – winning four and drawing the other two – and have kept clean sheets in four of their last five against the Dons.
Club captain James Tavernier also likes to play against Aberdeen, as the right-back has been directly involved in 12 of Rangers' last 23 league goals scored against them, netting nine goals and providing three assists.
A victory on Sunday would see Rangers retain their nine-point gap ahead of Celtic – if the Hoops were to beat Hibernian on Saturday – and would see the Gers claim their seventh successive league win.
Aside from their Scottish Cup semi-final exit, Derek McInnes will be pleased with how his side have performed in recent weeks, with the 2-0 win at home to Hibernian two weeks ago extending their run in the Scottish Premiership to six matches without defeat.
McInnes will also be impressed with how his side have improved in the final third as the Dons have scored 14 goals in their last six top-flight matches, after only scoring five goals in the opening six league games this campaign.
Aberdeen are going into this fixture at Ibrox in good form and also know what it takes to defeat Rangers in their own backyard. The Dons are the only side to win twice away from home against a Rangers side managed by Gerrard, winning 1-0 in the Scottish Premiership in December 2018 and 2-0 in the Scottish Cup in March 2019.
Claiming three points on Sunday could see them move level on points with Celtic, if the Hoops lose to Hibernian on Saturday, and would end Rangers' run of 20 games without defeat this campaign.
