Mexican midfielder Carlos Pena returned to the Rangers starting XI with a bang in Wednesday night – scoring in the 3-0 win over Aberdeen – and fans were left wanting more after his performance against the Dons.

The 27-year-old made his first appearance since the Scottish League Cup defeat to Motherwell in October and had a really impressive night in Rangers’ revamped 4-1-2-1-2 formation.

Pena got on the scoresheet after 27 minutes when he steered Jason Holt’s pass beyond Joe Lewis in the Aberdeen goal.

The midfielder was substituted after 67 minutes with Rangers 2-0 up on a cold night in Govan but despite the freezing weather, Pena had one of his best performances since his summer move from Chivas Guadalajara.

Fans were delighted with Pena’s performance and were left hoping the Mexican could do it more often – with one saying he’s looked better under Murty than sacked manager Pedro Caixinha.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

The win moves the Gers to three points behind Aberdeen ahead of clashing with the Dons again at Pittodrie on Sunday afternoon.

Interim Rangers boss Graeme Murty will be hoping the win gives his side some momentum after two consecutive defeats.

James Tavernier scored a double either side of Pena’s strike leaving the Ibrox side with being second in the Scottish Premiership by Sunday afternoon.

In the latest Rangers news, Murty has had his say on Wednesday’s game against the Dons.
