Glasgow Rangers dismantled lowly Hamilton Accies in the 5-0 rout at the weekend, with five different goal scorers pleasing Steven Gerrard immensely. 

Ryan Jack opened the scoring from 22 yards with a fine drive into the right corner of the net, to set the ball rolling.

Within another minute Jermain Defoe had headed Rangers into a 2-0 lead from a magnificent accurate cross from the right wing.

Rangers were totally dominating the play and soon after, it became 3-0 with an unstoppable strike by Scott Arfield.

Just before half time James Tavernier converted another penalty to put Rangers in easy street for the rest of the game.

With only four minutes left on the clock Kyle Lafferty finally scored after coming on as a sub for the last 25 minutes or so.

In a wonderful Rangers away performance, it was extremely difficult to pick a MOTM, as there were so many candidates to choose from.

Did one player in particular catch my eye – no. I thought Glen Kamara was absolute class and Ryan Kent was splendid.

Then we had Jack making the game look easy playing alongside good players in every position for a change.

Andy Halliday was in superb form at left back and charging up the wing and causing havoc teaming up and feeding Kent down the left.

Tavernier was also in excellent form playing together with Daniel Candeias who was tremendous the whole match.

It was good to see Conner Goldson and Joe Worrall forming a terrific partnership together, and Allan McGregor had only one save to make.

I felt sorry for young Ross McCrorie having to sit on the subs bench watching Kamara, Jack and Arfield performing to the high standard they produced on the day, they really were all immense.

Kamara has made an instant impact at Rangers by playing so well in his three games in a row displays. He looks as if he truly belongs in an Ibrox jersey.

He seems to bring more balance to the Rangers midfield, as does Arfield and Jack, when they are all fit to play together, they have a special blend.

Steven Davis and McCrorie will have a hard job getting a starting slot, if those same three midfielders can keep that standard up. 

Congratulations to another signed Rangers player, as Jordan Rossiter who is on loan, was Bury’s Sponsor’s Man of the Match, in their 3-1 win over Oldham. 

Rossiter has now completed four games in a row for Bury which, given his unfortunate injury record at Rangers, is a huge boost for Gerrard and the Ibrox club.

He bossed the game like Gerrard used to. If this loan spell triggers a new lease of life for Rossiter, then Rangers will get the benefit of this move.

Next game for Rangers is at Ibrox on Wednesday against Dundee in the SPFL, before their crunch Scottish Cup quarter-final away to Aberdeen.
