Rangers returned to winning ways as they came from behind to conquer 10-man Livingston 3-1, however there was cause for concern as new signing Ryan Kent limped away with a hamstring injury.
A dominant functionality from Rangers, that yielded plenty of chances but no targets, finished with loanee Kent limping away in the 41st minute after pulling up in the Livi half.
The people broke the deadlock from the penalty area two minutes using Steven Lawless firing home after Scott Arfield had triggered in the box Lyndon Dykes.
But Rangers hit back through a James Tavernier free-kick in the 55th minute before goals from Alfredo Morelos and substitute Brandon Barker – both sides of Dykes’ sending-off – wrapped up points.
Rangers had the lion’s share of possession however, it took him 11 minutes to enroll the first shot of the game although there was some positive buildup play in the hosts.
The home side continued to push for an opener and Sheyi Ojo needed a great opportunity in the 23rd minute when he shot the ball round visiting goalkeeper Ross Stewart but he could not keep it.
And Rangers were dealt a massive blow at the 41st minute when Kent was unable to last and replaced with fresh boy Barker.
Because the referee pointed to the spot just more than a minute in later Arfield fouled Dykes livi produced a dream start. And then Lawless scored his third league goal of the season from 12 yards to put Gary Holt’s guys 1-0 up.
But Rangers went directly in and hit back in the 55th minute when Tavernier’s free kick from the left evaded everyone in a packed box.
And then Rangers took the lead for the very first time in the match in the 71st minute when Tavernier’s corner had been flicked on Morelos and by Aribo headed home from close variety.
Livi were reduced to ten men at the 73rd minute when Dykes has been shown a second yellow card for a foul on Connor Goldson, also Rangers made it 3-1 half an hour later when Barker ended off a quick strike with a fine finish to indicate his league debut with a first goal for the team.
