Rangers leapfrogged Aberdeen into second place in the Scottish Pemiership with a battling 2-1 win over Aberdeen, their second win over the Dons in a week.

Rangers started the game brightly against a subdued Aberdeen, and took the lead in the 14th minute when a Danny Wilson header looped into the back of the net.

Josh Windass came close to adding to Rangers lead before Andrew Considine missed a great chance to equalise for the Dons in first-half injury time with a free header against the bar.

The second-half saw Rangers continue to dominate before Ryan Jack was sent-off for following through on Stevie May, to pick-up his fourth red card of the season.

That didn’t deter the Gers though, as Josh Windass took a pass from Kenny Miller to put the Gers 2-0 ahead.

Aberdeen got back into the game just two minutes later, as Frank Ross scored a free-kick.

Rangers stood firm against Aberdeen pressure towards the end of the game, and if this is Graeme Murty’s last game in charge he can be delighted with this week’s work.

The game threw up some fascinating talking points with Rangers still on the hunt for their new manager.
