Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has hailed Aberdeen goalkeeper Joe Lewis after the Dons shot-stopper made a number of “world-class” saves against the Gers.
Lewis pulled off a string of great saves against the Ibrox side in today’s Scottish Premiership clash as Celtic’s coronation as champions was delayed by a week.
The Ibrox boss lauded Lewis for making life hard for his side – and admitted that it wasn’t the first time the Dons keeper had delivered against his side.
“You’ve got to give Joe Lewis credit. He’s made two or three world-class stops again.” Gerrard told Sky Sports’ live coverage over the Ibrox clash (17:15, April 24th).
“He done it to us in one of the Aberdeen fixtures here, he’s a great goalie and he’s made some terrific stops.”
Despite Lewis’ heroics, two penalties from James Tavernier sealed the win for Gerrard’s side and confirmed the Gers’ second-place finish in the table.
The Dons face Celtic next weekend at Pittodrie and could now end up playing host to a title party – unless they can beat Neil Lennon’s side.
Lewis has made 47 appearances this season, keeping 16 clean sheets in the process and has been a huge part of the Dons’ success in recent seasons under McInnes.
