Michael Beale singles out Rangers ace after Aberdeen win

Rangers kept the pressure up on Celtic on Saturday afternoon as they hammered Aberdeen 5-0 at Ibrox with a performance that will keep Light Blues fans smiling for much of the week to come.

The Dons are seen as fierce rivals by many who associate with the men from Glasgow and so to beat them so comprehensively would have been very sweet indeed.

They showed cutting edge and ruthlessness for the duration of the ninety minutes, with the goals split between James Tavernier, who got two, Jermain Defoe, Alfredo Morelos and Greg Stewart.

Indeed, it was the latter who scored his first competitive goal for the club on Saturday afternoon that was singled out for special praise from Rangers coach Michael Beale.

He wrote on Twitter:

Stewart has had to be patient at times this season for opportunities but he certainly took the one he was given on Saturday well.

That’s his first competitive goal for the Gers, and fans will certainly hope it’s not his last.
