Derek McInnes claims there is “no fitter team in the league” as Aberdeen prepare for a second game in four days.
The Dons travel to Glasgow to face Rangers on Wednesday despite only playing against Kilmarnock on Sunday lunchtime.
Gers on the other hand have had two extra days rest following their defeat at Dundee on Friday, but that does not concern McInnes, whose side boasts a clean bill of health for the trip.
“Rangers had an extra couple of days to prepare for this one, but it doesn’t matter too much for us,” the Aberdeen boss said. “Our players are fit as. There is no fitter team in the league.
“We’re strong, we have good fitness levels as a squad and have everyone fit and available at the minute so we have a luxury to change things about and I always feel the strength of our squad helps us with this kind of schedule.
“Three games in a week isn’t a problem for us when we have a full squad.”
The trip to Ibrox sees McInnes face the club he has been heavily linked with in the past month following the departure of manager Pedro Caixinha.
McInnes, a former Rangers player, was installed as the early favourite to take the vacant manager’s job before distancing himself from it, but is expecting a big occasion when the two sides meet despite Gers’ poor recent form.
