As for the game itself, the Light Blues took the lead in the 32nd minute, Daniel Candeias’s superb cross finding Alfredo Morelos who headed home at the back post to score his 13th goal of the season.
Morelos was later replaced by Jason Cummings, who played 20 minutes in his Gers debut before a James Tavernier sealed the points in the 80th minute.
The win puts the Gers back into second place in the Scottish Premiership table, level on points with the Dons but ahead on goal difference.
The Light Blues will look to maintain their winning run in their next league match, an away trip to bottom of the league Ross County.
