A blistering first-half set up a strong win for Rangers over Dundee last night.
Steven Gerrard’s men are well aware that they need to keep winning if they are to put pressure on Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
They trailed the Hoops by eight points going into last night’s games and probably felt they could get an opportunity to cut that gap with their rivals heading to Tynecastle to play Hearts a day after losing Brendan Rodgers.
That proved not to be the case, with Celtic beating the Jambos 2-1 in a hard-fought victory.
But Rangers did what they needed to do in their game, knocking four past Dundee at Ibrox.
A strong first half put Gerrard’s men in full control of the game, with Glen Kamara, James Tavernier and Alfredo Morelos all hitting the net.
It was a less eventful second half, but Jermain Defoe climbed off the bench to add a fourth and complete the scoring:
With last night’s results, the gap at the top remains at eight points – but Rangers followed up their 5-0 win over Hamilton at the weekend with another big win and that’s all they can do while waiting for Celtic to slip up.
