Video: Barrie McKay Fires Rangers Ahead Against St Johnstone With Sweet Strike

Barrie McKay has settled some first-half nerves by firing Rangers in front against St Johnstone.

The Gers attacker struck in the 22nd minute to give Graeme Murty’s side a 1-0 lead over the Saints at Ibrox.

McKay reacted first when the ball broke his way on the edge of the box and he rifled a well struck half-volley into the bottom corner.

You can check it out in the clip below:

The Light Blues went into tonight’s clash without a win in the last four games and looking to close the gap on Aberdeen in second spot.

McKay’s opener will no doubt hand them a major boost heading into the second half.

If Rangers were to slip to defeat tonight and Celtic manage to win in Inverness, it would see their title challenge ended mathematically.

Amid the current search for Mark Warburton’s replacement, veteran defender Clint Hill has insisted it would be a success if Rangers finished third behind Aberdeen in their first season back in the top flight.

And this week saw former Ibrox captain Barry Ferguson emerge as a shock favourite for the vacant manager’s job after his departure from Clyde.
