Rangers have done an “unbelievable” job to take maximum points from Aberdeen this season, according to Alan Hutton.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gers defender admitted he was blown away with how the Glasgow giants managed to cope with the attacking threat of Curtis Main and Sam Cosgrove on Sunday afternoon.
A double from Alfredo Morelos in the opening 50 minutes put the Gers in a commanding position against the 10 men of Aberdeen, although Matty Kennedy’s goal made it a nervy end for Steven Gerrard and his men.
The win means Rangers have collected nine points from their three games against Derek McInnes’ men, who have traditionally been the third-best team in Scotland in recent years.
Hutton believes Aberdeen’s ploy to play two up front had the potential to bring the Gers’ unbeaten run to an end but that the Ibrox stars overcame the hurdle with relative ease.
Asked what he made of the Light Blues’ record against the Dons this season, Hutton told Football Insider: “It’s unbelievable. I mean, obviously, the stats are there for everybody to see, they’ve just gone from strength to strength.
“Overall in the game, I thought Aberdeen at the start did make it difficult for them, I thought it was going to be a tough afternoon.
“I think teams now, after watching the Celtic game and seeing how they played against Rangers, with the two up front, to try and hold back the full-backs, it seems to be working recently.
“Aberdeen tried the same thing with playing the two up top with one just sat in behind, they made it difficult, but Rangers just showed how strong they are at the moment. They were willing to wait and be patient.
“Obviously the penalty and the sending off was a big part of the game but they seem to be going from strength to strength at the moment and just really kind of rolling over teams as well.”
