Joe Garner scored a second-half hat-trick as Rangers reached the Scottish Cup semi-finals with a 6-0 thumping of Hamilton. Rangers’ biggest win of the season came on the back of the substitute Garner’s treble and efforts from Martyn Waghorn, Jon Toral and Clint Hill.With the Rangers board expected to announce a new manager in time for next Sunday’s Old Firm showdown with Celtic at Celtic Park, caretaker manager Graeme Murty was in charge for what appeared to be the fifth and final time. His record of three wins and two defeats may not be enough to make him a serious contender for the job on a full-time basis. But the former Reading player deserves credit for stepping into the breach after Mark Warburton’s shock exit and providing a degree of calm leadership, with his leaving gift a place in Sunday’s draw for the last four.
