Motherwell had midfielder Carl McHugh and manager Stephen Robinson sent off as they crashed to a 7-1 defeat against Rangers at Ibrox. With the scores tied at 1-1 following strikes by Rangers midfielder Scott Arfield and Motherwell’s Curtis Main, McHugh received a second yellow card in the 34th minute after being adjudged to have handled in the box by referee Craig Thomson.Stephen Robinson quickly followed him down the tunnel after an exchange of words between both benches and his team succumbed to Rangers‘ pressure after James Tavernier netted the penalty. Alfredo Morelos soon made it three and Eros Grezda starred in the second half, setting up goals for Glenn Middleton and Arfield before hitting two himself. The resounding win moved Rangers up to third place in the Ladbrokes Premiership, just two points behind new leaders Celtic, who were held to a goalless draw at Livingston.
