The fallout from Aberdeen’s 4-2 defeat to Rangers continues, with no signs of stopping.

The game was full of incident, with two red cards and two penalties, as Aberdeen failed to overtake Rangers in the league table.

Now Aberdeen assistant boss Tony Docherty expressed surprise at Rangers’ celebrations following their win. He unfavourably compared them to Aberdeen’s celebrations after their 1-0 win at Ibrox in December.

“We were surprised at the level of celebration on Wednesday night” he told the Daily Record.


“At Ibrox we won but once you win that, you focus on the next one. We celebrated and moved on.”

It will be interesting to see how long the dissension remains between the sides. They have never been exactly friendly, and it has shown since the game at Pittodrie.

How Aberdeen with the fallout of the result will be interesting to see. In the immediate future, they take on Queen of the South in the Scottish Cup with Scott McKenna unavailable after his red card against Rangers.

No doubt the tension will be cranked up once more before the teams meet again this season. That game will most likely happen at Ibrox after the Premiership split.

The game at Ibrox could have huge repercussions at the top of the Premiership table, depending on how many points separate the sides in the top six.

For now though, both sides will be looking to get on with the game and put all the controversy on the back burner.
