GLASGOW: Rangers moved up to second in the Scottish Premiership as they won 2-1 at Aberdeen despite Ryan Jack’s dismissal on his Pittodrie return.Ibrox caretaker boss Graeme Murty had backed former Dons skipper Jack to keep his cool against his old club.
But Jack lasted just 56 minutes before collecting his fourth red card in just 19 appearances since his Ibrox switch. Jack’s crunching tackle on Aberdeen’s Stevie May prompted his red card. But Danny Wilson’s 14th minute opener and Josh Windass’s 63rd minute strike were enough to seal Rangers’ second win over Derek McInnes’ team this week. They climbed above Aberdeen in the table and are now seven points behind leaders Celtic, who have a game in hand. Teenager Frank Ross got one back for Aberdeen with a superb free-kick in the 65th minute.
