Aberdeen fans have lauded Ross McCrorie after the recently-departed Rangers player netted the winner in their 1-0 victory over Kilmarnock at Pittodrie.

McCrorie joined the Dons on loan in August in a deal that will become permanent at the end of the season and made his fourth appearance for his new club on Saturday afternoon.

Derek McInnes initially looked keen on using the 22-year-old in defence but he was deployed in midfield for the second game running against Kilmarnock and performed superbly.

The hosts took confidence into the game following their 1-0 win at Easter Road prior to the international break and they didn’t take long to make the breakthrough, with the Scotland youth international netting in the 16th minute.

McCrorie was picked out by a Scott Wright cross when arriving on the edge of the box and he swept a fine first-time left-footed finish into the bottom right corner.

His celebration showed just how much he enjoyed getting on the scoresheet for his new club and with his confidence boosted, he went on to put in a Man of the Match display.
