Rangers fans romped to victory in the 4-0 win over Aberdeen at Ibrox but for many supporters it wasn’t just a swashbuckling display which stood out on the day.
Sky Sports appear to have listened to fan complaints about a commentary duo of Ian Crocker and Andy Walker on matches where they’re broadcasting the Gers.
Many feel that the two are far too Celtic-centric but that can’t be said of the broadcaster’s coverage today with Super Ally McCoist taking up co-commentary duties alongside Crocker.
The laugh-a-minute coverage of the club’s record goalscorer is a much more welcome addition to fans’ ears and Ally’s insight and humour supplemented a superb Rangers performance in Govan.
One moment in particular stood out to Rangers fans who were in stitches when the legendary former striker mispronounced Joe Aribo’s name.
That Arobo is some player

That’s not to take anything away from what was insightful commentary from the Rangers legend throughout the match.
Plenty also applauded Super Ally for his analysis and input as the Gers ran riot at Ibrox to make it twelve goals in two home games without reply.
Hopefully they keep mccoist on the co-comms as well, mind you it would of been nice to hear andy walkers tears the day🤣

McCoist’s commentary on Morelos’ tantrum there was class. Good to see Alfredo holding himself to a higher standard.

Ally McCoist is a breath of fresh air on commentary, makes it bearable at least 😂

Rangers dumped the desperate Dons 4-0 at Ibrox courtesy of goals from Ryan Kent, Kemar Roofe, Scott Arfield and captain James Tavernier.
The result leaves Rangers eleven points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership, with Celtic having two games in hand to come.
Rangers fans have also been sending messages of thanks to a “secret agent” Gers star who contributed to our Old Firm rivals dropping points over the weekend.
