History of the Kilmarnock v Rangers fixture

Kilmarnock prepare to entertain Rangers at Rugby Park on Sunday afternoon, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, winning just 18 of the 98 games played, and losing 58.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Rugby Park was earlier this season, with Rangers inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Killie in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Kilmarnock's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Killie have scored 7, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Rangers's away form is none too clever either, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. The The Gers's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 8 goals for and 6 against.

Kilmarnock are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 22 points from 25 matches. Rangers are leading the way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, with their 23 games giving them a return of 56 points.
