Liam Scales scored an incredible goal as Aberdeen shocked Rangers 2-0 to hand his parent club Celtic the chance to seal the Scottish Premiership title in their first post-split game.

The on-loan defender’s cross sailed over goalkeeper Allan McGregor and into the net as the Dons took the lead just after the break.

Bojan Miovski headed in the second soon after as Barry Robson’s side secured a seventh straight win to strengthen their grip on third.

Aberdeen’s first win over Rangers since 2018 sees them five points ahead of Hearts, while Celtic are 13 points ahead of Rangers and will secure back-to-back titles if they win their first game after the split.
