Rangers sputtered for much of the middle of the game, but with a goal early and two late they continue on the right track in Scotland
Rangers came back from the international break and looked a bit out of form for much of their Scottish Premiership clash with Livingston at Ibrox, but they added some insurance at the end to make it a comfortable victory and continued success domestically.
Rangers got out to a dominant start to the match, creating an almost endless wave of opportunities in the opening 20 minutes of the match. Livingston barely possessed the ball at all, let alone create legitimate scoring opportunities.
While Rangers struggled to finish off their hard work in the attacking 3rd, which is still a bit of a worrying pattern for the side, they finally found their breakthrough when Daniel Candeias took a wonderful service from a Glen Middleton corner-kick and headed it into the Livingston net in the 20th minute.
Following the goal, Rangers seemed to let off the gas pedal a bit. Livingston managed more possession, and even a few goal-scoring chances in the attacking third, a couple of which they were very fortunate that Livingston didn’t convert.
Steven Gerrard inserted Alfredo Morelos into the game for Kyle Lafferty in the 62nd minute in an effort to beef up the Rangers sputtering attack and he was rewarded for his faith in the Columbian striker.
In the 83rd minute, Morelos took the ball at the edge of the box and rifled a shot into the net on the counter-attack to put the game on ice.
Scott Arfield joined in the goal-scoring to truly put the game away in the 88th minute as the ball found him after a scuffle in front of the net and he put it away.
The win makes two solid wins in a row for Rangers, which combined with a shocking loss by Hearts to St Mirren for Rangers to pull fully clear into second in the Scottish Premiership behind Celtic.
