Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes insists home advantage will count for nothing when his side travel to Ibrox for their Scottish Cup replay against Rangers next week.
The Dons and the Gers will meet for the sixth time this season after their quarter-final finished 1-1 at Pittodrie on Sunday.
Sam Cosgrove, who scored Aberdeen’s opener from the penalty spot, will miss the game due to suspension but the Dons boss is confident his side, who have beaten Rangers twice in Glasgow already this season, can handle the Ibrox cauldron against Steven Gerrard’s side.
He said: “I wanted to win the tie at Pittodrie but I’m fine. We want to win the cup and as everyone knows we are strong on the road.
“We have won at Hampden and Ibrox already this season and we have to do it again.
“It’s the same game for me and we just have to go there and produce another performance and I’m confident we can do that.
“The evidence is there and the players don’t need reminding of that. Whenever you play Rangers home or away it is tough.
“They’ve spent a lot of money and assembled a good side but it is important we go down there and show the belief we showed on Sunday.”
McInnes was pleased was disappointed a lapse in concentration from his side gifted Rangers an easy equaliser at the start of the second half with Joe Worrall’s first goal for the Gers earning them a replay but believes his players should be proud of their defensive display.
The back four of Max Lowe, Andy Considine, Scott McKenna and Dominic Ball nullified a Rangers team which arrived in the Granite City having scored 14 goals in their three previous matches and McInnes is confident his players can produce another memorable display to secure a semi-final trip to Hampden.
He said: “We showed an attacking threat and nullified Rangers well. The downside was losing Gary Mackay-Steven to injury but we had the game where we wanted it.
“We spoke at half-time about keeping full concentration and we did that brilliantly other than the goal which is disappointing. I never for a minute thought we would lose a goal from a set play on Sunday but by and large we were fairly untroubled.
“We had more territory in their penalty box, were incisive when we broke, and there were some real opportunities there. The only criticism is that we didn’t get the ball over the line but there was a lot about us to be happy about.
“We have to do it all over again and it doesn’t matter to me that we have to go Glasgow. We’ve won there already this season and our away record is very good. We’ll be alive and kicking for the replay.”
