PEDRO CAIXINHA insists Rangers will beat Aberdeen twice to overtake their Premiership second-place rivals.
The Dons moved 13 points clear of the Ibrox side last night with their 1-0 home win over rock-bottom Inverness Caley Thistle.
They now await the visit of the Govan outfit at Pittodrie on Sunday.
The Portuguese coach takes his squad to Kilmarnock tonight aiming to get back to winning ways following the disappointing 1-1 draw with Motherwell.
And Caixinha refuses to give up hope that his side will finish best of the rest as he promises the Rangers fans two wins from two against the Dons.
He said: “If we just had one game left against them, I would say it is almost impossible.
“If you take three points from 10, that’s seven. But six from 10 means a gap of four, so it is still possible.
“We understand that we need to win both of the games for it to be possible, but while it is still possible, why not keep the flame in that direction?
“I want the team to always think up the way and not a team which is playing without goals.
“We must always have a team with a shine in their eyes to do something.”
Pedro goes into these crucial matches with what he describes as the best squad in Scotland.
