Steven Gerrard’s side meet their former enemies as they seek to establish an 11-point lead over Celtic

The Rampant Rangers won a complete 4-0 victory over Aberdeen at Ibrox and are now 11 points clear atop the Scottish Premiership

Goals from Ryan Kent, Kemar Roofe, Scott Arfield and a penalty from James Tavernier saw them win with a lot to spare against their rivals from the North

This is their 13th clean sheet of the season, but the whole discussion will be centered around their electric attack demonstration

They were the best team from the start and Steven Gerrard will be delighted with the intensity of the performances from start to finish

Derek McInnes will be disappointed with both his team’s defense and his failure to create clear chances for the future

Although Covid’s injuries and issues mean he was crippled in selection, he would have hoped for more fight from his side given the one-sided nature of the proceedings

Their ever-stretched Premiership lead is causing noise throughout the city, but the Rangers simply refuse to get caught up in the drama

The ruthless efficiency with which the thriving Steven Gerrard side established an 11-point advantage over Celtic was once again fully showcased in this brutal 4-0 dismantling of Aberdeen

Events at Easter Road not 24 hours earlier had created fervor around a game the Ibrox team were not prepared to let go

Rangers legend Ally McCoist joked that Alfredo Morelos is the club’s greatest striker of all time when it comes to taking the time to be substituted

The all-time goalscorer Ibrox, 57, was in the gantry in the landslide 4-0 victory over Premiership rival Aberdeen and offered his verdict on the Colombian

Morelos was visibly annoyed after failing to find the net during the run to Ibrox and threw his gloves to the ground after being substituted by

A superb performance by Steven Gerrard’s men puts them 11 points clear at the top of the league

They dominated today against the third best team in the country and added another boost to their growing goal difference advantage

McInnes to report injuries and Covid cancellations, but he will be angry with his poorly defended players

Great Tavernier ball from the right and Itten should do better with a diving head

Okay, so the Dons didn’t do much and were crippled with an injury, but it must be said that Ibrox’s men were first class again

We’re going to have to see a serious turnaround at Celtic Park if anyone else is to win this title

The ball goes in and Joe Lewis spins the ball over the bar after the cross pushes Curtis Main off

He already gave a penalty for shooting Leon Balogun and he did it again there

It was a tough change for Aberdeen forward Derek McInnes clearly looking to consolidate his side for the last 15 minutes

Roofe has been outstanding and central to much of Rangers’ dynamic attacking play as Aribo got stuck in the action in midfield

The Colombian striker is brooding when he doesn’t get a goal and he throws his gloves off in dismay at his manager’s decision

This is the kind of desire to get goals that his boss will want him to channel

Morelos has had a mixed afternoon and generally doesn’t seem too happy to be doing

After a fairly electric opening hour, the game has now picked up a training pace

The Scottish star takes a break as the veteran arrives for the final 35 minutes

The captain steps in and sends Lewis the wrong way It’s 13 for the season now

It’s a great game for Kent to lead the defense and retreat to Arfield, but the low shot turns on Shay Logan’s foot and completely changes direction

Thanks to the Rangers for their offensive play and it is surely this dead game as a contest for three points

The Englishman is a curious player Neither a traditional number nine nor ten, he is something of a hybrid

Technically brilliant, he tied the game between midfielder and attacking here as he is allowed to float in pockets of space

It will be interesting to see how his role evolves as he settles into the camp

Alfredo Morelos, on the other hand, didn’t have much of an impact and gave the ball too often

A dominating performance from Ibrox’s men and once they got up to speed this game seemed destined to be an easy win

Aberdeen hasn’t done much to challenge this idea and although Cosgrove and Hedges were dangerous during the break, Goldson and Balogun defended their threat reasonably well.

The Rangers could have had more, but both goals are examples of the individual quality they now have in their ranks

McInnes won’t be happy that the two are from Rangers forwards defending his defense, but he will know his men have been in second place for 45 minutes.

Gerrard on the other hand will be delighted and will now seek a declaration result against their former enemies

Ryan Jack is furious as he won the ball in his tackle, but the foul is taken by Goldson rather than the Scottish midfielder

Discussing Derek McInnes ‘chance to become Rangers manager before Steven Gerrard took over, commentator Ian Crocker just asked Ally McCoist if this was a case of’ good work, bad moment”

McCoist’s serious tone spoke a thousand words about his own tenure as Ibrox manager after the club found themselves in the lower end of Scottish football

Fortunately for the Dons, Roofe is one yard offside and is considered interfering with play

The decisive quality level in the final third at Ibrox now makes it a very dangerous proposition
