Rangers 0-1 Aberdeen


Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna drills a volley high into Rangers’ net

Rangers relinquished top spot after Scott McKenna’s goal earned Aberdeen a victory on a night when both sides were reduced to 10 men.

McKenna struck after seven minutes, but Aberdeen were on the defensive after Sam Cosgrove received a second booking.

Rangers laboured and Alfredo Morelos saw red after the break when a stray arm on Graeme Shinnie led to a second yellow card.

Rangers’ defeat saw Kilmarnock replace them at the top of the Premiership.

Aberdeen have failed to defeat Rangers in four consecutive meetings, and this win was built on resolve and perseverance.

McKenna’s early strike established a foundation to build on, and the visitors were well organised and disciplined enough to thwart Rangers’ attacking intent.

Morelos sent a header wide in the first half and another over the bar, while Aberdeen goalkeeper Joe Lewis saved from Glenn Middleton, but once Morelos received his third red card of the season – and his second against Aberdeen – the home side lacked a cutting edge.
