Joe Dodoo scored as he came off the bench against Aberdeen
The 21-year-old came off the bench to score and set Kenny Miller up as Rangers ran out 3-0 winners at Pittodrie.
All three goals came after Dodoo replaced Joe Garner after 70 minutes.
And the former Leicester striker says he knew what he had to do to hurt the Dons.
He said: ”For me watching the game I could see what needed to change at that time of the game because I think we were really narrow and playing into their hands a little bit more.

"All I had to do was just make the pitch bigger, just go wide and stay wide and if I made the pitch as big as possible then our midfielders could get on the ball and start moving the ball.
"That then would make it harder for them to get the ball off us because the gaps between us would become so big that they couldn't press us as much as they were.
"I knew I had to go on the pitch and exploit the spaces and luckily we did that and within a five-minute spell we beat them."
And Dodoo claims Rangers are a better side than Aberdeen despite still trailing them by nine points.

"We weren't surprised we beat them because we are better than them no matter what anyone says,” he said.
"Sometimes we aren't winning games, but we do have more than them and if we exploit the right spaces, do the right things and make the right decisions, play as a team and continue to work hard we should be up there.
"I am happy because we got the three points and we hadn't won for a while and it was obviously brilliant to come on and score, but the most important thing was to get the points on the board."
