Rangers moved eleven points clear of bitter rivals Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership with a 4-0 demolition of Aberdeen at Ibrox this afternoon – and Gers fans have been left amazed by the football Steven Gerrard’s side are playing.
Goals from Ryan Kent, Kemar Roofe, Scott Arfield and James Tavernier sent Aberdeen back to the Granite City with their apparent good record at Ibrox in tatters after firing blanks in Govan for the fourth game on the spin.
The Gers looked hungry from the start and were quickly rewarded as Kent opened the scoring 15 minutes in before Roofe made it 2-0 before the break.
It was an excellent team performance for the Gers and fans were quick to lavish praise on Gerrard’s side as they enter a crucial run of games over the next six weeks.
While fans were delighted with the result in itself, it was the way Rangers went about their business that really caught the eye – with one fan saying it is the “best footballing side we’ve had since 1998.”
Here are some of the comments from Rangers fans as the Gers thrashed Aberdeen:
This is the best footballing side we’ve had since 1998. A proper joy to watch.

Tremendous attitude, Rangers. In the past we've struggled after an international break or when they drop points. Aberdeen the best team we've faced this season.

The interchange of positions all over the park is the best I've ever seen in a Rangers team. Aberdeen's usual tactic of literally man marking every player is redundant. If we get lethal they're in the shit. Go for the throat!

Superb Rangers, Last couple of years we'd be hanging on for a 1 goal win or looking for a late miracle against this mob. Now it's a pumping without really getting out of 2nd gear. 👏

Operation stop the ten is literally just rangers playing the way we are and banging in the goals.

Have never seen a Rangers side more comfortable on the ball from 1-11 than this current one. Tremendous to watch.
