Former Rangers star Charlie Miller admitted he “feared” for Mark Warburton’s side ahead of their clash against Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.
The Gers recorded a hugely important 2-1 victory against their league rivals and moved back into second place in the league table following an inspired display.
Warburton’s side have been inconsistent this season and, after suffering a 2-0 defeat against Hearts last Wednesday, Miller was “shocked” when they swept aside Aberdeen.
“Rangers struggled badly against Hearts and it really couldn’t get much worse for them. I feared for Rangers going into the Aberdeen game,” said Miller, as reported by The Daily Record.
“I couldn’t see them beating Aberdeen. But they went out and shocked me.”
It was a commanding performance from the Gers in the second half and goals from Kenny Miller and Lee Hodson sealed victory before Aberdeen’s Andrew Considine netted a consolation goal in stoppage time.
Rangers will be hoping to produce a similar performance when they host Hearts for the second time in two weeks and will want to avoid another defeat.
They have won four of their last six games and despite a poor performance against Hearts, Rangers look to have improved slightly in recent weeks.
They are still eight points behind Celtic, who currently lead the Premiership table and have three games in hand but the two teams will battle it out in the Old Firm derby at the end of the year.
In other Rangers news, the club may be forced to sell this senior star in January.
