Jonatan Johansson sends Twitter message to Rangers fans after Aberdeen win

Rangers coach Jonatan Johansson has taken to Twitter to thank the travelling fans for their support at Pittodrie on Sunday.

Goals from Danny Wilson and Josh Windass earned the Light Blues a brilliant 2-1 victory over Aberdeen that saw them move up to second in the Premiership table even though they played the final third of the game with 10 men due to Ryan Jack’s red card.

Now, Johansson, 42, has hailed the effort of the group for picking up three points against Derek McInnes’ side.

“Great atmosphere, spirit and togetherness today, both on the pitch and in the stand. Thanks to all travelling Rangers supporters,” he said on his personal Twitter account on Sunday.

Johansson was hired by Pedro Caixinha earlier this year but is facing somewhat of an uncertain time at Ibrox after the Scottish Sun reported on Sunday that a move is being discussed to make Barry Ferguson the new No 3 to McInnes.

It is understood that an approach will be made for the Aberdeen manager within 24 hours with Ferguson being eyed up to join his coaching staff.

The ex-Clyde manager was interviewed by Caixinha ahead of Johansson’s appointment in the coaching set-up but it is now unclear where the former Finland international stands in regards to his Ibrox future.

Johansson spent three years as a Rangers player, leaving in 2000 for Charlton.

In his time in Glasgow, the former striker won the domestic treble and domestic double in Dick Advocaat’s first two seasons as manager.

In other Rangers news, Kris Commons has made a stunning claim when comparing this Rangers player to a Celtic senior star.
