Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna hasn’t always been the most popular man amongst the Rangers support.
Particularly last season, the physical centre back proved to be a thorn in the Ibrox club’s side and even scrambled home a winner in a 1-0 win for Aberdeen at Ibrox last season.
But a dip in form this season and some questionable defensive displays for Scotland have had the Rangers faithful questioning their rivals over the reported £10m prime asset.
Watching the Scotland highlights on sportscene and how poor is McKenna 😂😂😂 absolutely sat down for that shot they hit the bar and in and wasn’t gave. How he gets a game for anyone I’ll never know

McKenna isnt mate but Jack is, thought he and McGregor like I've said complement one another well and both ben excellent in the Europe for clubs against decent teams.

Across the board, the big 23-year-old product of Aberdeen’s Academy got a scathing review for his performance in the 2-1 win over Cyprus.
Reports last season claimed that should any clubs be interested in signing Scott McKenna they’d have to cough up a whopping £10m.
Aberdeen vice-chairman Dave Cormack even said the Pittodrie club turned down an eye-watering £6.5m for the big defender in January this year [Scotsman].
Now one of Scotland’s first choice centre-halves McKenna will be looking to recapture the sort of form that also had him linked with the likes of Aston Villa and Celtic.
Being fair, McKenna’s season has been disrupted by injury, with the Aberdeen defender tearing his hamstring at the end of August on Rugby Park’s controversial artificial surface.
