Football Results

James Tavernier scored a goal and assisted the other as Rangers produced one of the comfortable football results of the midweek action in the Championship. Tavernier opened the scoring in the fifth minute from the penalty spot before Alfredo Morelos doubled their advantage in the 57th minute. The three points helped the defending champions reduce the gap at the top of the table to one point.

Managers Reaction

Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst: “We were good. We started the game really well with the penalty and also some chances were created. We put a lot of energy into the game and a lot of pressure. We won a lot of balls in their half, especially in the first half, so the overall performance was really good. We created chances. It was 2-0 and we could have scored more, but the performance was really good and that was good for us because we needed the points.”

Hibernian manager Shaun Maloney: “Rangers were probably the better side for long parts but there were still some parts I really have to give our players credit for. Going 1-0 down really early, we regrouped defensively. We didn’t give up too many really big chances. The chances we create, and it sounds like I’m saying this a fair bit at the moment, it does change the dynamics of the game if we take them. The penalty [claim] was a big decision. That would have changed the dynamic too. But that’s done. At the time, I couldn’t quite see it. But, looking back, it’s quite clear it was a penalty.”
