History of the Kilmarnock v Rangers fixture

Kilmarnock prepare to entertain Rangers at Rugby Park at lunchtime on Saturday, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, winning just 18 of the 97 games played, and losing 57.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Rugby Park was less than a year ago, in February 2007, as the visitors ran out cosy 1-3 winners in a Scottish Premier match.
