Rangers coast back to summit

21 Nov 2009 - 16:58:48

Champions Rangers are back on top of the Scottish Premier League table after sweeping struggling Kilmarnock aside 3-0 at Ibrox.

The result - and the fact that the Gers would leapfrog the inactive Celtic at the top of the table - was never in doubt after the home side raced into a 3-0 lead inside the opening 35 minutes.

Goals from Kris Boyd, Kenny Miller and Steven Whittaker stunned the visitors and effectively ended the game as a contest by half-time.

However, Celtic will return to the top of the table should they overcome Dundee United at Tannadice on Sunday.

Elsewhere, Falkirk ended their long wait for a first league win of the season after a 2-0 success over Hamilton.

The Bairns remain rooted to the foot of the table but are now just one point adrift of Accies following second-half goals from Chris Mitchell and Lee Bullen.

Gary McDonald had a mixed afternoon after earning Aberdeen a 1-1 draw with Motherwell at Fir Park with a 67th-minute equaliser before being sent off for a second bookable offence.

Lukas Jutkiewicz had opened the scoring for the Steelmen in the 13th minute of the game.

Hibernian remain third in the table despite being held to a 1-1 draw by St Mirren.

Derek Riordan had fired Hibs into a 29th-minute lead but Chris Innes restored parity on the stroke of half-time.

In Saturday's early kick-off, Hearts slumped to a 2-1 defeat at home to St Johnstone.

Christian Nade had opened the scoring for the Edinburgh club with his first goal in nine months.

However, replies from Collin Samuel and ex-Hibs striker Johansson, plus the second-half dismissal of Jose Goncalves, ensured that Hearts had another afternoon to forget.
