Glasgow Rangers blew lowly Dundee apart with only 14 minutes on the clock. They were already 2-0 up and had an Alfredo Morelos goal struck off for offside. It ended 4-0.

The electric, fast interplay between the defence to attack was reminiscent of Rangers years ago.

The Ibrox club used to be able to afford top players, and watching today, it brought back good memories to the fans.

It also left the bottom of the league team, without any answers to the onslaught.

Let’s not get carried away as it was against an inferior side who have now lost all five of their league games.

Lassana Coulibaly was a starter in midfield after missing recent important matches and was again in terrific form.

He is becoming a certain starter, and was taken off after 58 minutes to save him for Spain on Thursday against Villarreal.

Ex-Burnley midfield player Scott Arfield was outstanding and voted MOTM by the Rangers sponsors, but my choice was ex-Liverpool loan star – Ryan Kent.

The 21-year-old was rampant throughout and scored his first goal for the club. Kent had his best game in a Rangers jersey.

McGregor had one shot and one good save to make and everyone of the back four was up to the task and insured a clean sheet at the final whistle.

The midfield was consistently strong today, breaking up all Dundee attacks and moving the ball about quickly, to turn defence into exciting, fast forward play.

Should Rangers continue to play at this pace, their stamina undiminished, they will surely create a springboard which augurs well for future matches.

Coulibaly scored the first in only four minutes to get Rangers off to a flying start. This was swiftly followed in 14 minutes by the imperious Kent.

Tavernier converted a penalty just before half time when Morelos was taken down in the box, and 18-year-old substitute Glenn Middleton scored his first goal and Rangers fourth.

With 18 minutes to go, new signing Eros Grezda was introduced to the Ibrox crowd after playing no football since last May. According to the boss, he will become a real star signing.

Ryan Jack and Ovie Ejaria were both omitted today through not being 100% fit to start, but should travel and be ok for the Europa group Villarreal game, if required.

Jordan Rossiter, Graham Dorrans, Joe Worrall, Gareth McAuley, Ross McCrorie, Jon Flanagan and Lee Wallace were not used today, but are all capable of doing a good job.

Congratulations to Steven Gerrard for giving Rangers terrific options, all over the park now.
