Rangers are set to finish third in the Scottish Premiership table this season. Pedro Caixinha’s are currently third in the standings with 64 points from 37 matches.

It has not been a great campaign for the Gers, but finishing behind Old Firm rivals Celtic and Aberdeen is not too bad given that they got promoted from the Scottish Championship only at the end of last season.

The Glasgow giants lost against Aberdeen at Ibrox on Wednesday evening. Graeme Shinnie put the visiting team in the lead in the ninth minute, and Ryan Christie, on loan from Celtic, made it 2-0 in the opening minutes of the second half.

Rangers halved the deficit just past the hour mark when Martyn Waghorn found the net, but the home team failed to find the equaliser.

Aberdeen ended the game with 10 men due to the sending-off of Jayden Stockley in the 90th minute.

Former Hibernian forward Tam McManus and ex-Heart of Midlothian midfielder Michael Stewart were following the game, and they had some harsh comments about Rangers.
