Rangers boss Michael Beale confirmed that Ryan Jack and Ridvan Yilmaz picked up injuries against Aberdeen.

The Ibrox side already have several players unavailable, such as Todd Cantwell, Danilo and Rabbi Matondo, and now they could be without two others.

Jack and Yilmaz were both substituted during the defeat to Barry Robson's men and Beale provided an update.

He said: "At that moment, we could have done without Ryan Jack and Ridvan having to come off because it compounds the situation where we have got a light bench."

The hosts lost 3-1 to the Dons after goals from Stefan Gartenmann, Jamie McGrath and Jack MacKenzie.

Abdallah Sima scored to give Rangers hope at 2-1 before former Pittodrie midfielder Scott Wright was shown a red card which killed the game as a contest.

And Beale was not happy with his side's defensive display. Speaking to BBC Radio Scotland, he said: "It was a horrible result.

"I thought the first half we were in full control and Aberdeen tried to sit in and play on the counter-attack.

"We had three or four big chances to go in front, and we didn't. We get caught with a sucker blow on a set play where we did not do well enough.

"We did not do well enough on both set plays for the first two goals today but, either side of that we, were the most dominant team.

"After the sending-off, things became difficult. In terms of chances in the game we had the most but if you do not defend your box... the way we did was schoolboy stuff.

"It is not good enough, people are not tracking their runners and not getting first contacts and we have lost 3-1 because of that today."
