Rangers kick-off their Scottish Premiership campaign away at rivals Aberdeen on Saturday August 1, live on Sky Sports.

Steven Gerrard's side, who finished second to Celtic in the 2019/20 season after the SPFL opted to curtail the campaign, visit Pittodrie before home games with St Mirren (August 9) and St Johnstone (August 12).

They will also be live on Sky Sports away at Livingston (August 16) and at Hamilton (August 29), while their first Old Firm clash will come on October 17 at Celtic Park.

The 2019/20 season ended prematurely due to the coronavirus pandemic, with Celtic declared champions and Hearts relegated on a points-per-game system

Rangers' Europa League round-of-16 second-leg clash with Bayer Leverkusen was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, while the Scottish Cup semi-finals - Hearts vs Hibernian and Celtic vs Aberdeen - and final are yet to take place.

Rangers trail Bayer Leverkusen 3-1 and are set to play the return leg in Germany on August 5 or 6. A Europa League 'last-eight' tournament will then also take place in Germany from August 10-21.

Boyd: Rangers need consistency to challenge

Sky Sports' Kris Boyd believes Rangers need to find consistency throughout the entire season to challenge Celtic, having dropped off following last season's winter break...

"The consistency from both Old Firm clubs last year was unbelievable, right up until the winter break. It's really important that Rangers can continue that for the full season, because that has been their problem.

Former Rangers striker Kris Boyd talks assesses his old club's chances of winning the Scottish Premiership, as the new fixtures are released.

"I think there has maybe been a drop of form or loss of confidence since they came back from the winter break, but they won't have that break this season.

"Hopefully we can have a title challenge where Rangers push Celtic all the way. There's no doubt there is quality within that dressing room, when they come up against Celtic 11 vs 11 they can win those games, but sometimes Rangers need to find a way of grinding out results.

"But credit to Celtic, who were unbelievable, and went on a terrific run and blew everyone away."
