Joe Worrall salvaged a replay for Rangers in their last eight tussle with Aberdeen in the William Hill Scottish Cup at Pittodrie and then insisted that the Ibrox men have not given up hope of reeling in Celtic at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership.

Worrall pounced in the second half to cancel out Sam Cosgrove’s opener for the Dons to ensure the two will go at it again next week.

Meetings between Aberdeen and Rangers rarely pass off without incident and Sunday’s clash was no exception.

In the aftermath of a 1-1 draw in the Granite City, Aberdeen left back Max Lowe has acccused Rangers midfielder Scott Arfield of trying to get his captain Graeme Shinnie sent off.

Lowe took umbrage at Arfield's reaction to a challenge by Shinnie in the second-half of the quarter-final and attempted to get his rival back on his feet.

His actions prompted Glen Kamara to come over and shove his opponent and a scuffle then broke out involving several players from both teams.

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard reckons a draw was a fair result as Worrall’s first goal for the Light Blues shortly after the break kept Gerrard’s side in the competition.

Meanwhile, Gerrard’s Aberdeen counterpart, Derek McInnes, is confident the Dons can travel to Glasgow for the replay and triumph at Ibrox.
