Rangers maintained their four-point advantage over Celtic in one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Scottish Premiership. Joe Aribo put the defending champions ahead in the 36th minute to take a lead into the break. Ten minutes after the restart Ryan Sweeney slid to put the ball into his own net before Alfredo Morelos put the game to bed in the 70th minute. It was the fourth consecutive win for manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst since he took over the reins from outgoing manager Steven Gerrard.
Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst: “We worked hard to get the passing game up, at speed, especially against opponents who are organized and defended really well.” he added. “You need that flow of passing and today we did really well. You could see that the more minutes we played, the more space we got and we also changed the direction of play quickly and dominated those areas.”
Dundee boss James McPake was unimpressed by the behavior of the Rangers players when Leigh Griffiths, on loan from Celtic and who came on as a second-half substitute, got booked by referee Alan Muir for foul on Aribo.” he added. “He is going to get a hostile reception. He gets a hostile reception everywhere he goes. It never crossed my mind to say: ‘I’m worried about putting him on’. Leigh’s a character who can take it on. You could see what they were trying to do, in my opinion.”
