3:15pm: Half-Time: It’s been a good half for Rangers. They’ve been in control and Aberdeen have rarely had much of the ball. Aribo has been exciting for Rangers and his link up play with Morelos has been excellent. It was a composed goal by Kent and Rangers have not had much to do defensively.

3:42pm: Hagi fouls Hernandez.

3:42pm: Hayes crosses the ball into the box after a good run but no one can get on it.

3:43pm: First corner for Aberdeen.

3:44pm: The corner goes in and it’s a bit of a scramble. Lucky for Rangers, first threatening chance from Aberdeen. Balogun receiving treatment after his head hit the post.

4:13pm: Goldson is fouled by Ferguson.

4:16pm: 6 minutes added.

4:18pm: Great block by Taylor to stop Aribo’s shot.

4:22pm: Rangers thoroughly deserved the 3 points. Good game from Rangers again controlling the second half. The link up play for Rangers between Kent, Morelos, Aribo and Jack was excellent. Aberdeen struggled but they showed more promise in the second half but they still didn’t create a lot. My man of the match was Kent. He had a good game; he created a lot of chances; he positively influenced the game and he was at the centre of everything for Rangers.
