Rangers player ratings v Aberdeen as James Tavernier produces the goods to deliver League Cup glory for the Ibrox side.

Rangers clinched their first piece silverware of the season as James Tavernier's goal proved enough to see off Aberdeen in the Viaplay Cup final at Hampden Park.

The Light Blues got their hands on a trophy for the first time since the Scottish Cup final back in May 2022, with manager Philippe Clement celebrating his first major triumph since being appointed as Rangers manager.
