PEDRO CAIXINHA says Rangers dramatic late win over Aberdeen was a team effort as he praised goalkeeper to forward line.

Wes Foderingham pulled off a string of impressive saves in the second-half at Pittodrie to keep his side in the game before Kenny Miller and Joe Dodoo struck three deathly blows at the other end.

Miller netted his 10th and 11th of the season on 79 minutes and then 81 before Dodoo finished superbly in the 83rd minute to round things off and Caixinha says his side followed their plan to a tee.

The manager told RangersTV:

“Before Kenny’s goals Wes made a fantastic save and all the players were committed, they knew exactly what they needed to do in each moment of the game.

“Kenny did great, the first goal was fantastic but Wes also made a fantastic save, it was brilliant work from the defensive line, brilliant work from the midfield line and the team as a whole was present today on the pitch.

 “The boys need big congratulations today because they did everything that we planned for the match.

“The players always need to have this winning passion and that sacrifice when it’s needed.”

Caixinha also took time out to praise the fans that travelled in their numbers to Aberdeen and were rewarded with the Gers biggest win over the Dons for nearly a decade.

He continued:

“Without fans we are nothing so we are very happy for them as well.

“We play with the same passion that they are giving us so we just need to give the same back and it was really important to celebrate at the end with them.”
