Rangers dropped more points in the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership title race after being held to a goalless draw by Aberdeen at Ibrox.
Another below-par display cost Steven Gerrard’s side as they made it five points lost inside a week following their defeat by Hearts last weekend.
Rangers created some decent chances either side of the break, but Aberdeen goalkeeper Joe Lewis was equal to everything they could muster.
The Dons had a number of opportunities themselves, but Sam Cosgrove’s touch let him down when clean through in the first half and Allan McGregor produced an excellent stop from Ash Taylor.
With both sides having played 23 games, Rangers are now four points behind leaders Celtic, who face Hamilton on Sunday.
Hibernian fought back to earn a 2-2 draw against St Mirren at Easter Road.
