During the interval Paul Sheerin made a double change with Gibbons and McKenna being replaced by Harvie and Felek. Both subs were two of the Dons better players this afternoon. Aberdeen were lucky to survive a corner at the start of the second half after they failed to clear their lines and then Langfield was forced to turn a free kick from Walsh round the post. After that the home side had a lot more of the ball but a very well organised Rangers defence held a good line and allowed the Dons very few chances. Their midfielders also did a good job protecting the defenders. There were one or two half chances - from a corner Harvie picked the ball up and his cross found Rose but his half volley bounced into the keepers arms. The Dons were working hard but struggling to put any real sustained pressure on the Rangers backline. The Glasgow side were sitting in and not giving the reds any space to run into. Also they could not get any real pace into their passing. Aberdeen were having to resort to shots from distance or crosses from deep. When they did get in good areas the final ball let them down too often. It was very frustrating viewing. On 75 minutes Flood came off and came Jamie Henry on. He actually had the Dons best chance in the final minute. He broke clear in the box and tried to beat the keeper at his near post by Kelly made his first real save of the afternoon. Before that Langfield had made a good save to tip a header from Harvie over. There were very few moments of note in the second half but credit for that must go to Rangers who saw out the game very comfortably.
