Gerrard happy with Rangers players patience in Aberdeen win

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard believes his side put in a “strong performance” in the 2-0 win over Aberdeen that has confirmed their second-place finish in the Scottish Premiership.

The Gers boss praised his side for staying patient despite taking longer than they would have liked to open the scoring as the Dons sat deep and tried to hit them on the counter.
“I thought my team were very good today, a strong performance against a difficult team,” Gerrard told Sky Sports’ live coverage over the Ibrox win (17:14, April 24th).
“We stayed with it and we never got frustrated and were patient. We played some good stuff and Joe Lewis has made numerous good saves so we deserved the three points.”

The win also means Celtic need to wait until their next game to be crowned champions after the Gers closed the lead to eight points with three games to go.

Despite both goals coming from the penalty spot, the Gers were, by far, the better side over the 90 minutes.
Gerrard’s side now look forward to facing Hibs next week at Ibrox as the season nears its conclusion.
