After failing to qualify for the Europa League, the full focus can now return to the Scottish Premiership for St Johnstone, which might be a welcome situation for Callum Davidson.
He has yet to see his side pick up a victory in the league this season, despite drawing three out of their four opening games, and Saturday will be another opportunity for them to break that record.
Sitting just three points above the foot of the table, there is a real need for the Saints to start earning more points, but they will need to defeat Rangers in the league for the first time since 2017 in order to do that.
However, St Johnstone do have far more recent experience defeating the Gers, as they knocked them out of the Scottish Cup last season on penalties as they went on to win the competition.
Davidson’s squad will have to step up massively in an attacking sense if they are hoping to get any result from the game, with the Saints having the worst record in the league this season in front of goal.
So far, St Johnstone have only managed to score once in the opening four fixtures, and even that was an own goal by Motherwell’s Stephen O’Donnell.
With both squads fresh from the recent break, they will each be eager to get back to league action on Saturday, with Steven Gerrard hoping for a less stressful period for his club.

The start of the season has proven to be difficult for Rangers, with COVID-19 having an impact, but they still managed to qualify for the Europa League and find themselves third-placed in the Scottish Premiership.
The defending champions are just one point behind Hibernian and Hearts who each sit above them, meaning a victory on Saturday has the potential to take them to the top of the table depending on other results.
Fresh from a 1-0 victory in the Old Firm derby during their last outing before the international break, Rangers will be keen to continue their strong form as of late.
