Tavernier delivers one-word verdict on Rangers fans after win v Aberdeen
Rangers right-back James Tavernier has saluted his teammates and the “outstanding” fans after his side defeated Aberdeen for the second time this week.
A Danny Wilson header put Rangers into a first-half lead, and the Gers managed to survive the sending-off of Ryan Jack to go 2-0 ahead in the second-half. A Frank Ross free-kick pulled a goal back for the Dons, but Rangers held on to win 2-1.
The victory moved Rangers into second place in the Scottish Premiership table on goal difference.
After the game, Tavernier took to his Twitter account to hail his team-mates for a job well done.
“What a test of character that was…the lads put in a unbelievable shift.”
Tavernier also saluted the travelling fans, calling them “outstanding”.

Tavernier was the midweek hero for Rangers with two goals in the 3-0 victory over Aberdeen at Ibrox.
Rangers are next in action this weekend against Ross County at Ibrox, and it seems likely that a new manager will be in place by then.
The favourite for the job has always been Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes, and rumours are rife that Rangers are set to make a move for him this week.
If a new manager is appointed he faces some tough games this month with an away match to Hibs and a Glasgow derby against Celtic at Celtic Park on the agenda.
