Glasgow Rangers signed the 29-year-old this summer and he scored his first goal for Steven Gerrard and co at Ibrox yesterday.

Glasgow Rangers coach Michael Beale has taken to Twitter with his verdict on the Ibrox side’s crushing 5-0 win over Aberdeen on Saturday and gave a special mention to one Gers player.

The Gers equalled their biggest ever victory over the Dons at Ibrox, the same scoreline recorded in 2004-05, and edged to within a point of Celtic, who dropped points against Hibernian earlier in the day.

Rangers captain James Tavernier redeemed his recent penalty miss against Feyenoord by stepping up to the spot twice against the Dons and delivering on both occasions, his first goal opening the scoring at Ibrox.

Greg Stewart also scored his first goal for Rangers, while Alfredo Morelos and substitute Jermain Defoe also got on the scoresheet to cap off a great week for the Light Blues, who in midweek sealed their place in the semi-finals of the Scottish League cup thanks to a 1-0 win away at Livingston.

Beale’s “special mention” was for Stewart, who joined Rangers on a free transfer this summer after leaving Birmingham City – here is what the coach said about the £450,000-valued ace (Transfermarkt):

Up next for the Gers is Thursday’s Europa League group game away at BSC Young Boys.
