Rangers beat Ross County 4-0

Daizen Maeda doubled the visitors' advantage before Giakoumakis netted his second after his first effort was cleared off the line.

Morelos‚ meanwhile‚ has not scored since a 1-1 draw with Benfica in November. In the first half‚ Steven Gerrard's men dominated the game. The visitors were outmatched at every point in the game‚ and the home side's defenders struggled to stop the Rangers attack. The visitors had no answer for the pressure and Rangers' full strength squad‚ and they dominated possession of the ball. The visitors used a mixture of subs and a few substitutes‚ while the visitors' attack was dominated by a strong Rangers side. After an exhausting Europa League campaign‚ the champions have now clinched the league title with one game to spare. After beating RB Leipzig in the semi-final‚ the Rangers players will now face the winner of the Europa League. With the win‚ Steven Gerrard's men have a one-in-four chance of reaching the Premiership final. But it's important to note that Ross County have won three of their last four matches. The Gers started strongly‚ with Kamara and Aribo in midfield and Lundstram and Tavernier up front. Lundstram and Aribo had early chances to open the scoring‚ but County's goalkeeper saved both efforts with a dazzling save. On the other hand‚ Scott Arfield and Barisic missed good chances. The Gers' second half performance was more stout than the first.

And while the result was far from perfect‚ it did give Graeme Murty some much-needed confidence and boost his chances of getting a permanent job. The hosts looked to have a good chance to score in the first half‚ but they were unable to take their chances. The first goal came from a shaky build-up involving Regan Charles-Cook. However‚ the second goal was a screamer. In the second half‚ he made a superb diving save to head home a corner from James Tavernier.
Rangers fight back from a goal down to win 4-0
The second half saw the home side come from a goal down to draw 2-2 with Hibernian at Easter Road. Jack scored his second goal after some good work from Arfield and Aribo. In the second half‚ the visitors began with the same purpose but saw a good chance go begging. Jack hit a left-footed effort narrowly wide. Rangers continued to control the game‚ though. The first period ended 1-0 in favour of Rangers‚ as Jason Cummings scored his first goal against the visitors. Midway through the first period‚ Daniel Candeias scored to put Rangers in the lead. Although they dominated possession‚ Rangers failed to create enough chances‚ allowing County to take advantage of their pressure. Alfredo Morelos' injury forced Rangers manager Steven Gerrard to make changes and Jason Cummings was introduced into the starting lineup. After conceding the first goal‚ Rangers responded with a brace. Ryan Jack scored twice before half-time and Alfredo Morelos netted twice. The hosts held on to remain just one point behind Celtic‚ with a 4-0 win at the Global Energy stadium. After the first half‚ Rangers still had plenty of time to celebrate‚ despite conceding four goals in the second period. The second half of the game saw Rangers battle hard against Celtic in the title race. The away side had a goalless draw before the break‚ but they fought back with a spirited performance and a strong team spirit. However‚ the visitors struggled to settle on the surface‚ and Rangers struggled to find a rhythm. Rangers fought hard in all areas‚ and a poor pass by Tavernier cost them a chance to score. Despite being four points behind‚ Rangers won the last four meetings with the Staggies. In the previous three meetings‚ the Rangers had scored 11 goals without conceding a single goal. Despite a late goal from Doonhamers‚ they failed to cling on to their advantage‚ and dropped two points in the process. The loss meant that Rangers' lead had been reduced to three points and the Staggies had a chance to close the gap.
Rangers striker makes things happen
Rangers signed off the season as domestic champions with a 4-1 win over Ross County. The win keeps the club within two points of Celtic in the Scottish Premiership title race‚ and it's not the only positive result for the club. Amad Diallo netted on his debut while James Tavernier won and scored a penalty in the second half. The win was a good boost for Scottish football and the Rangers fans will be optimistic for the Europa League Final. It's important for the club to win the Scottish Cup in the first place. Rangers have less than a 1% chance of winning the title this season. After all‚ Celtic have two fixtures left before the international break: the League cup semi-final against Hibs and the Europa League clash against Sparta Prague. They've also been accused of overspending and spending on players that haven't performed well. In a tense game‚ the Rangers striker made things happen. In the first half‚ the visitors failed to test Maynard-Brewer and failed to create a clear-cut chance. However‚ they managed to create a chance for a second goal after just three minutes‚ as Diallo cut inside and hit a rebound into the path of Tavernier. A sloppy defensive display at the end of the first half meant that the score remained 1-1 at halftime. The visitors looked tired and desperate to equalise and a late chance for an equaliser was wasted. After the break‚ however‚ the spirited County attack rallied around the injured Gardyne and Goldson headed home the rebound from a corner. The game went on until the end‚ but Rangers were still ahead. Celtic are still leading the Scottish Premiership by six points‚ and have a nervy Celtic team. They had missed a number of chances to take the lead‚ but it was enough to win the derby. A second half goal by Reo Hatate and a fourth from Liel Abada ensured Celtic would go on to win. Rangers' poor week should have had them well up in the title race.
