Steven Gerrard expressed his delight after his Rangers side defeated Aberdeen 4-2 in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday night.
The Gers overcame the Dandies during an action-packed game that featured six goals, two sendings off, and a penalty, while keeping the Glasgow club firmly in second place.
Alfredo Morales, James Tavernier and Jermain Defoe scored the goals to give Rangers the victory, much to the manager’s satisfaction.
“Obviously I’m delighted the win,’’ Gerrard told Sky Sports.
”I thought we stood up to them and matched them on the basics very well. We took our goals ever so well.
“Morelos’ finishes are top drawer and that’s the reason we love him so much.”
Scott McKenna received his marching orders in the 55th minute of the match, while Morales followed suit just a few minutes later.
“In terms of the incidents I haven’t seen them to comment on. I can’t even comment to say Scott McKenna deserves a red because I haven’t had a chance to see it.
“James Tavenier’s is a penalty. I think the referee got it right.
“This gives us a little breathing space but we know Derek McInnes will keep pushing until the end. Aberdeen have been in great form. We know they’re not going to go away. It’s an important victory for us. We’ve a cup game at the weekend and we want to get into the next round and keep pushing on in the league and see what happens.”
Rangers now trail first-placed Celtic by six points, while lying five points above Aberdeen.
