Humble Pie For Aberdeen A



Aberdeen "A" lost to Rangers "A' 1 at Ibrox on Saturday by 6 goals to 2, but Rangers' superiority was by no means so marked as the score suggests. The Young Dons led 2-1 at the interval, but their display in the second half fell far short of that required to maintain their advantage.


Falloon did not have happy day at left-back, and Mills' form fell far below last week's showing against Beith at Pittodrie.
Of the first team players, Fraser was the only one to shine. He was easily the best half-back on the field, and saved the Aberdeen lines time and again.
Cooper was giving Reid of Rangers too much rope, and played below form. Of the forwards Brady was undoubtedly the star, scoring the most spectacular goal of the match.
Kelly, in goal, had a mixed day, saving several shots that might have counted, but allowing one goal which it was possible to prevent. As it happened this did not prove vital, and he certainly redeemed himself.
The forwards had a difficult time of it. Very little of the ball came their way, but what they did see of it. they used to best advantage. Willie Scott was a good leader, chasing everything that had possibilities.


George Scott and Devine also worked hard, but with so little of the ball, had scanty chances. Campbell, on the wing, did not get far against Cheyne.
The reason for Rangers' huge goals total lay in the persistent service the forwards got from Little and Ross.
Time and again Thornton profited by their through passes. and it was this coupled with Aberdeen's second half failing, that made the defeat so heavy.
