Glasgow Rangers rookie manager Steven Gerrard secured his first away SPFL match when they beat Hamilton Academicals 4-1 on the Sky Sports televised Sunday afternoon game.

My MOTM Ryan Kent, the young Liverpool loanee left winger scored a terrific opening goal to allow Rangers to go in at the interval 1-0 ahead.

It was a scrappy game on a crappy plastic pitch.

Plucky get in your face Hamilton tactics, looked to have earned the Lanarkshire team a share of the points, when Steven Boyd equalised with only 10 minutes of the game remaining.

Substitute Boyd cut inside past Jordan Rossiter to wallop a superb top corner strike which rocketed past the great Allan McGregor, who simply had no chance of stopping the goal.

Three late goals sealed the away result for Rangers when James Tavernier scored his seventh and eighth goals of the season, with seven coming from the penalty spot.

A great shot from striker Alfredo Morelos finished the scoring, to secure the Ibrox club 5th place alongside Hibernian in this years’ exciting league – for a change.

There is no doubt that Hearts are worthy of their No.1 position in the league so far, as they are playing attractive football and scoring goals into the bargain.

Hearts won 1-0 against Celtic and 2-1 in a blood and thunder game against Aberdeen to sit proudly at the top with their well-earned 22 points after nine matches played.

A top class Rangers attacking performance against Hearts at Ibrox, is the only defeat suffered by the Tynecastle side and a draw against surprise team of the year Livingston has cost them five points.

Steve Clarke is doing a magnificent job for re-born Kilmarnock who have the same points as Celtic with 19 and equal 2nd place, and amazingly Livingston are in third place on 18 points – who would have thought it possible?

For the first time in many a year, we now we have a league title worth talking about.
