Rangers picked up a priceless three points in their quest to finish second in the Scottish Premiership with a win over Aberdeen on Sunday.

Manager Pedro Caixinha was delighted with the 3-0 victory, which moved his side to within nine points of rivals Aberdeen.

Therefore he was understandably unable to contain his passion when celebrating his side’s third goal, and can be seen (below) taking to his knees in the technical area and punching the air in delight.

Rangers were made to work hard for their victory at Pittodrie, but eventually broke the deadlock through veteran goalscorer Kenny Miller in the 79th minute.

Miller, 37, added a second goal just two minutes later, before substitute Joe Dodoo completed the rout by slamming home Rangers’ third goal.

The away side had been given a few minor scares, with Aberdeen dominating much of the second period, and forcing Gers’ stopper Wes Foderingham into a number of crucial saves.

But the five-minute goal blitz late into the second-half saw Rangers take the spoils with an important victory, and as posted by a Rangers supporter on Twitter, you can see Caixinha’s passionate celebration.

With the Scottish Premiership title race already done and dusted with Celtic cruising to a sixth consecutive title, Rangers have their sights set on a second-place finish.

Aberdeen are their only realistic competition for second-place, but Rangers must also be aware of St. Johnstone, who are closing in on their current position in third.
