Rangers ease to victory over St Mirren

Rangers eased to a 2-0 victory over St Mirren to ensure they head into the winter break six points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Scott Wright opened the scoring for the Ibrox side early on, with Alfredo Morelos doubling the lead before half-time.

The win restored Rangers’ six-point lead at the top of the Premiership after Celtic had won at St Johnstone in the early kick-off.

St Mirren were boosted by the return of some key players after suffering a Covid outbreak at the club, but they failed to make their mark at Ibrox and created little in the game.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s winning start as Rangers manager continues while his St Mirren counterpart Jim Goodwin is now without a victory in 12 games.

What’s next?

After the winter break, Rangers travel to Aberdeen, while St Mirren visit Dundee United, with both Scottish Premiership games kicking off at 7.45pm on Tuesday January 18.
