The Rangers extended their unbeaten run with yet another devastating Scottish Premier League victory, beating third-placed Aberdeen 4-0 at Ibrox.
After an 8-0 demolition of Hamilton before the international break, the Rangers continued, escaping with a top rival. After getting an early saved chance, 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 as Aberdeen encountered in the second half. Scott Arfield (49) made it three just after the break before James Tavernier (52) scored another penalty to round out a seventh consecutive win in all competitions.
The Rangers have won all 10 of their home games this season with just one conceded goal and are now 11 points clear of Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premier League table. Aberdeen remain in third, four points behind Neil Lennon’s side and one ahead of Hibernian in fourth.
