Rangers hammer Ross County 4-0 at Ibrox – Sporting Life
Rangers cruised to a 4-0 win over Ross County at Ibrox on Saturday to leapfrog Celtic atop the Scottish Premiership table.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side broke the deadlock with a touch of luck after John Lundstram’s long-range drive deflected past Ross County stopper Ross Laidlaw midway through the first half.
Centre-forward Antonio Colak doubled the lead before the break with a diving volley and netted his second after the break with a thunderous drive to cap a delightful build-up phase.
Substitute Steven Davis sealed a comfortable afternoon for the Gers by slotting home James Tavernier’s cross to secure the three points with a table-topping performance.
Celtic now sit two points shy of their Old Firm rivals with a perfect 12 points from four games and can retake the summit on Sunday when the Hoops travel to Dundee United.
Colak continued his scoring form with a double as Rangers returned to domestic duties after European euphoria with a comprehensive 4-0 home win over Ross County.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side qualified for the Champions League by beating PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday night thanks to a solitary goal from the 28-year-old striker.

Back in the cinch Premiership, midfielder John Lundstram opened the scoring in the 24th minute with a deflected 25-yard drive before in-form Croatia forward Colak scored a second in 39 minutes.
While Gers defender James Sands was perhaps lucky to escape picking up a second yellow card when the match was goalless and before he was substituted at the interval, Colak added a third just before the hour mark for his seventh goal in seven games and late substitute Steven Davis knocked in a fourth with 10 minutes remaining.
