The Dons travelled to Ibrox as underdogs given they had spurned the opportunity to win the tie at Pittodrie earlier this month, and on top of that, their top-scorer Sam Cosgrove was ruled out through suspension.
But the Dandy Dons roared to a 2-0 victory, with Niall McGinn and Connor McLennan scoring the vital goals – and gifting Aberdeen their third consecutive win over Rangers in Glasgow this season.
That’s a pretty remarkable record for any Aberdeen boss, but McInnes was intent on shining the spotlight onto his team after the full-time whistle:
Aberdeen will now face cup holders Celtic in the semi-finals of the competition, with the tie to be played at Hampden on the weekend of April 13/14.
Can they go all the way and claim their first Scottish Cup triumph since 1990?
