The Ibrox side dominated from the first whistle. Indeed, St. Johnstone goalkeeper Zander Clark had to produce a string of saves to keep the match goalless.

Rangers took the lead just before half-time when the guest defenders left striker Alfredo Morelos unmarked. And he opportunistically headed in Connor Goldson’s ball at the back post.

Morelos then set up Ryan Kent for the second goal just after the break. Morales squared the ball to the winger to fire under Clark.

The guests struggled to create chances and were screaming for a penalty when Glen Kamara appeared. Kamara bring down Liam Craig in the box, but it was strangely the Saints defender who picked up a booking.
