The fallout continues from Rangers’ chastening defeat to Aberdeen, in Tuesday night’s Scottish Cup quarter final replay.

19-year-old Aberdeen player, Connor McLennan, has opened up on the match, as quoted by the Daily Record.

Northern Ireland international, Niall McGinn gave the Dons an early lead.

However, it was McLennan, who put the game beyond the Gers, in the 62nd minute.

“It was brilliant – I was speechless”, said the winger, as quoted by the Daily Record.

“It was some experience. It was obviously my second time being there. My first was in December.”

“We beat them 1-0 then and it was good to get another win on Tuesday. That’s twice I’ve been there and won.”

McLennan and Aberdeen’s record embarrassing

When put like that, it shows just how poor Rangers have been against the Dons this season.

They are an extremely young, inexperienced squad, yet they continue to best the Gers.


That a 19-year-old winger has turned up at Ibrox, scored once and won twice in the same season, is embarrassing.

He and fellow youngsters like Lewis Ferguson and Dean Campbell, have walked away with the spoils without even seeing the hosts do as much as score a goal.

This is by no means the best team Aberdeen have ever had. Derek McInnes even admitted that himself this week.

Yet, other than the 4-2 win at Pittodrie, Rangers have consistently failed to lay a hand on this opposition.

Six matches, one win, two draws and three defeats.

Youngsters like McLennan must think playing Rangers is a walk in the park.

Just like the record against Hibs this season, it simply isn’t good enough.
