Rangers extended their unbeaten run with another devastating Scottish Premiership victory, beating third-placed Aberdeen 4-0 at Ibrox.
After an 8-0 demolition of Hamilton before the international break, Rangers picked up where they left off against a top-four rival. After having an early chance saved, Ryan Kent (15) netted the first goal with a sensational curling effort to end a 10-game scoring drought.
Kemar Roofe (29) then doubled Rangers’ lead with a low finish before two goals in as many minutes sucker-punched Aberdeen in the second half. Scott Arfield (49) made it three just after the break before James Tavernier (52) scored yet another penalty to round off a seventh successive victory in all competitions.
Rangers have won all 10 of their home games this season with just one goal conceded, and are now 11 points clear of Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership table. Aberdeen remain in third, four points behind Neil Lennon’s side and one ahead of Hibernian in fourth.
