Alex Rae salutes 'immense' Rangers following win v Aberdeen

Former Rangers midfielder Alex Rae has taken to social media to lavish praise on the Gers following their 2-1 victory over Aberdeen earlier today.

Rangers managed to survive the sending-off of Ryan Jack to record their second victory over the Dons in a week, which lifts them past Aberdeen to second in the Scottish Premiership on goal difference.

It was a performance which delighted Rae, who used his official Twitter account to hail a “magnificent performance…fighting spirit was immense”.

The two victories over Aberdeen have transformed Rangers’ season which looked on the ropes after loses to Hamilton and Dundee.

Caretaker manager Graeme Murty managed to pull the Gers together to stop the rot, firstly in a 3-0 victory over Aberdeen at Ibrox on Wednesday night and then in today’s win.

Rumours are rife that today will prove to be Murty’s last game in charge of Rangers, with suggestions that the Rangers board will approach Aberdeen for permission to speak to Derek McInnes this week.

McInnes has been the odds-on favourite to take over at Ibrox since the departure of Pedro Caixinha in October, but as yet Rangers have not approached Aberdeen.

Murty’s record as caretaker manager is likely to end with three victories and two defeats.
