Solberg Opener But 10-Man Dons Loose 5

Aberdeen got off to the best possible start when Tony Vidmar handled the ball in the area, and Thomas Solberg stepped up to strike his penalty past Klos.

Jonatan Johannsen hit the post for the visitors soon after, but he got his reward for some hard work, when his deflected shot made it 1-1.

Paul Bernard then ended his current good form, when he was sent off for a wreckless foul on Van Bronckhorst, putting the Dons down to 10 men.

Aberdeen reached half-time at 1-1, and were looking quite good despite being down to 10 men.

However Michael Mols struck for the Scottish Champions after 67 minutes to make it 2-1.

2 minutes later, Rangers score was extended to 3-1 when Amatostruck past helpless ex Scotland International Jim Leighton.

Johannson completed his hat-trick with two goals in as many minutes, striking with 12 and 10 minutes remaining.

Despite the final result, the Dons put up a brave fight, and the result possibly flattered the league leaders.
