  • Rangers 3 – 0 St Mirren (FT) – Morelos double and assist
  • Kilmarnock v Celtic – 4.30pm kick-off

Christie almost sets up Forrest

A cracking delivery from deep meets a fine Forrest run but he can’t quite get his napper on it.

Kabamba has Jullien on toast

Once again the Celtic centre-back can get to grips with the physical Kabamba.

The Frecnchman gets roughed up after a long ball and the striker battles and wins it easily but his shot is blocked.

From the resultant free-kick the Frenchman sends a shot just wide of the far post.

Alan Power is the latest player to be booked after a late and robust challenge on Mohamed Elyounoussi.

Ross Millen fires in another great cross, this time Kabamba’s header is wayward. 

Chris Burke scores from 12 yards with a great penalty

Kabamba gets the better of Jullien who drags the striker down.

FT: Rangers 3 – 0 St Mirren

Alfredo Morelos scored twice and set up the opening goal which was an own goal. 

Alnwick with another save

Jak Alnwick with another fine save. A cross from Tavernier bounced to Bassey but another diving stop from the goalkeeper kept the score down.

From the resultant free-kick, Christie finds the bottom corner from 35 yards. An incredible strike.

Question marks over Danny Rogers in the Kilmarnock goal being caught out by the hit.

First yellow at Rugby Park

Gary Dicker booked for a cynical challenge on Odsonne Edouard.

Rangers sub: Barker on for Kent

St Mirren sub: McAllister on for Durmus
