Rampant Rangers celebrated an all-out 4-0 win over Aberdeen at Ibrox and are now 11 points ahead of the top of the Scottish Premier League

Goals from Ryan Kent, Kemar Roofe, Scott Arfield and a penalty from James Tavernier meant they had a lot to gain against their northern rivals

It’s the 13th Conceded goal of the season, but the whole discussion revolves around the electric attack display

They were the better team from the start and Steven Gerrard will be amazed with the intensity of the performance from start to finish

Derek McInnes will be disappointed with both his team’s defense and their failure to create clear opportunities in the future

While injuries and Covid suffering mean that he was under pressure in the selection, he would have hoped for more fight from his side in view of the unilateral process

The Ibrox boss was enthusiastic about his team after the comprehensive 4-0 win against Aberdeen, in which they dream of winning the title

But Gerrard was quick to warn against complacency despite his side scoring the goals and leaving the opposition behind after Ryan Kent, Kemar Roofe, Scott Arfield and James Tavernier found the net

Their growing leadership in the Premiership is causing a stir across town, but the Rangers simply refuse to get involved in the drama

The ruthless efficiency with which Steven Gerrard’s prosperous side achieved an 11-point lead over Celtic was once again evident in this brutal 4-0 breakdown by Aberdeen

Events on Easter Road that hadn’t happened 24 hours earlier sparked a passion for a game that the Ibrox site didn’t want to boil over

Ally McCoist, the legend of the Rangers, joked that Alfredo Morelos was the club’s greatest striker when it came to being replaced

The 57-year-old Ibrox all-time goalscorer was in the gantry in the 4-0 win over premier rivals Aberdeen and gave his verdict on the Colombian

Morelos was visibly annoyed after failing to find the net while raging in Ibrox and threw his gloves on the ground after being replaced by

An excellent performance by Steven Gerrard’s men brings them 11 points ahead of the top of the league

They dominated the third best team in the country today and strengthened their growing advantage in goal difference

McInnes will point out injuries and calls from Covid, but he will be furious that his players defended so poorly

Great ball from Tavernier from the right and Itten should do better with the header

Okay, the Dons weren’t very busy and were crippled by injuries, but you have to say the Ibrox men were top notch again

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

The ball comes in and Joe Lewis somehow spins the ball on the crossbar after Curtis Main spins the cross

He has already given a penalty for pulling Leon Balogun and he has done it again there

It was a difficult time for the Aberdeen striker Derek McInnes has clearly been trying to support his side for the last 15 minutes

Roofe was exceptional and was at the heart of much of the Rangers’ lively attacking game while Aribo is stuck in midfield

The Colombian striker is grumpy if he doesn’t score and takes off his gloves in dismay at his manager’s decision

It’s the kind of hunger to achieve goals that your boss makes him expect

Morelos had a mixed afternoon and usually doesn’t look particularly happy when he jumps off

After a fairly electric opening time, the game has now reached a training pace

The Scottish star gets a breather as the veteran steps in for the last 35 minutes

The captain steps forward and sends Lewis in the wrong direction. That’s now 13 for the season

It’s a great game of Kent going on defense and going to Arfield, but the low shot spins off Shay Logan’s foot and changes direction completely

Thanks to the Rangers for their attacking game and that is certainly a dead game as a competition for the three points

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

Technically brilliant, he has linked the game between midfield and attack here, as he is licensed to float in pockets of space

It will be interesting to see how his role changes as he becomes more entrenched in the page

Alfredo Morelos, on the other hand, did not have much influence and gave the ball away too often

A dominant performance by the Ibrox men, and once they got into gear this game seemed like an easy win

Aberdeen did little to challenge that notion, and while Cosgrove and Hedges were dangerous during recess, Goldson and Balogun defended their threat pretty well

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

McInnes won’t be happy both of them being from Rangers attackers running in his defense, but he will know his men are second best in 45 minutes

Gerrard, on the other hand, will be thrilled and now look for a result against her old enemies

Ryan Jack is furious when he won the ball in his tackle, but the foul is more likely to be pulled by Goldson than the Scottish midfielder

Commenting on Derek McInnes’ chance to become Rangers manager before Steven Gerrard took over, commentator Ian Crocker asked Ally McCoist if it was a “right job, wrong time”

McCoist’s serious tone spoke a thousand words about his tenure as Ibrox manager after the club landed in the lower reaches of Scottish football

Fortunately for the Dons, Roofe is an off court and is viewed as disruptive to the game

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