Derek McInnes reportedly entered the Rangers dressing room tonight to tell celebrating players to ‘keep the noise down’.
It was a very eventful night at Pittodrie as Steven Gerrard’s men beat Aberdeen 4-2 in a game that had two penalties and saw two players red carded.
Rangers were cruising at half-time with a 3-1 lead, but conceded to Sam Cosgrove’s penalty a minute after the break to make it 3-2.
Scott McKenna was soon sent off for Aberdeen – seconds before Alfredo Morelos was red carded for his involvement in the same incident.
But it was the home side who coped better when down to 10 men and Rangers had to produce a solid late defensive display to hold on to their lead before Jermain Defoe’s late goal to seal the win.
Given the battle, you can understand Rangers’ delight at coming out on top.
But this report suggests they may have been going over the top in their celebrations in the eyes of McInnes.
According to Sky Sports’ Sahil Jaidka:
From looking Jaidka’s Twitter profile, he’s a chief sub editor at Sky Sports News and his LinkedIn profile supports that so there’s no reason to doubt the credibility of this report.
With the win, Rangers retained their place in second in the Premiership table, extending their lead over Aberdeen to five points.
But they still sit six behind league leaders Celtic, who beat Hibs 2-0 at Celtic Park.
