Rangers captain James Tavernier was hit by a PIE at Pittodrie during this evening’s Aberdeen match.

The defender was taking a throw in from the right flank when the object hit him from behind.

After looking around in annoyance for the culprit, Tavernier continued play.

Rangers were leading 2-1 against Aberdeen at the time after Scott Arfield and Ryan Jack put the Gers in front with early goals.

Aberdeen midfielder Jon Gallagher then pulled one back for Derek McInnes’ side.

Rangers and Aberdeen have been approached for comment.
