'One gem in a disaster of a season' – Rangers fans drool over one star after 1-1 v Aberdeen

Rangers kept alive their hopes of a second place finish in the Premiership with a battling 1-1 draw with Aberdeen on Tuesday night, and fans are signing the praises of youngster Ross McCrorie.

Kenny McLean gave the home side the lead from the penalty spot in the 14th minute and that was the only goal in the first 45 minutes.

Rangers fought back after the break and a header from Ross McCrorie headed the equaliser that could still see his side finish one place below below Celtic in the table.

Caretaker manager Jimmy Nicholl had said it was a must-win before the game, but this draw still gives Rangers hope.

They’re currently one point behind Aberdeen in third, while Hibs are three points back in fourth with a game in hand.

Hibs play Hearts tomorrow night before the end-of-season finale against Rangers at the weekend that will sort out the European places.
