Kris Smith: "There is no way an artificial pitch was the cause of a 3 goal margin in that game. #bbcscotfootball"

Steven, Fife: "The two teams who deserve to go up are Hearts and Hibs they have been brilliant Rangers at best have been mediocre."

Rangers manager Stuart McCall

"I said we would have ups and downs. Tonight's a down but we'll be ready for Sunday. We've got to make sure it's only a blip and it doesn't continue. The wheels are not off. It's a defeat and we'll look to put that right on Sunday."

Queen of the South manager James Fowler

"I think we restricted Rangers to few chance over the whole 90 minutes. Second half, I thought we could've scored a few more. We've got good players and the work-rate they put in gets rewards. We've got a massive game against Falkirk on Sunday."

A disappointing night for Rangers in Dumfries, the visitors started reasonably well but could not match Queens after falling behind

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Both of these sides are back in action on Sunday. Queen of the South host Falkirk while Rangers entertain Raith Rovers.

With second-place Hibernian also in action against title winners Hearts that day, it could prove to be a pivotal one in the race for the three promotion play-off places.

David Morrow: "Terrible refereeing tonight. Foul at the first goal. Pitch should be banned players slipping everywhere #bbcscotfootball"

FULL-TIME

Queen of the South 3-0 Rangers

Queen of the South claim their second successive home win over Rangers and move back into the promotion play-off zone in the Scottish Championship. The visitors remain third.

TEXT 80295

James in Giffnock: "Can you imagine Rangers coming back here in a few weeks, in a playoff situation. Stuart McCall has some serious thinking to do."

Anonymous: "swings & roundabouts.rangers are playing more like hibs did before they were relegated from the spl surely they must improve they cannot go on like this !"

GREAT SAVE!

Kris Boyd heads towards the Queen of the South goal and Zander Clark is well placed again to make the save.

ADDED TIME

There will be three minutes of stoppage time.

Haris Vuckic's deflected shot is kept out by Zander Clark. The Queen of the South goalkeeper is determined to keep his shut-out.

Three minutes left at Palmerston and Iain Russell comes on for Gavin Reilly in Queens' final substitution.

TEXT 80295

Mac: "@21:07: lumping the ball forward into the box is almost as big a turn-off as Mike Ashley's ongoing involvement with the club. It's horrible to watch, frustrating, no where near effective enough, and embarrassing that that's what we have continually resorted to in the championship. Usually about 10 minutes into a game. McCall should ban it, not encourage it."

A tame Ryan Hardie shot rolls into the hands of Queen of the South goalkeeper Zander Clark.

It looks like it's going to be a first defeat for Stuart McCall as Rangers manager

Rob Maclean

Sportsound commentator

"When [Queen of the South] have gone forward, they've taken their chances. Rangers haven't taken their chances and it's come back to bite them."

Change for each side. Kris Boyd takes over from Nicky Clark for Rangers while Scott Hooper has replaced Mark Durnan for Queens.

Tactically, Queen of the South have got it spot on in this second half. They've given Rangers very little space and have always looked dangerous on the break.

GREAT SAVE!

Queen of the South keeper Zander Clark gets down well to clutch a Haris Vuckic low shot from the right.

Ryan Hardie replaces Kenny Miller for Rangers.

BBC Radio Scotland's Chick Young reports that a mobile phone was found on the pitch and has now been removed.

A mistake by Zander Clark almost lets in Rangers' Kenny Miller but Queens eventually scramble clear.

GOAL

Queen of the South 3-0 Rangers (Reilly)

It's a third for Queens. Robbie Crawford concedes possession deep inside his own half and Kevin Holt exchanges passes with Gavin Reilly, who finishes calmly past Lee Robinson.

GREAT SAVE!

But wait, Rangers press with Bilel Mohsni sending in a low, awkward shot that forces Zander Clark to tip wide on the bounce.

Around 24 minutes left at Palmerston. Queen of the South look comfortable with their lead and if anything look the most likely to get the next goal.

#bbcscotfootball

bringthemonjpn: "#bbcscotfootball A defeat is of no use to Rangers. McCall should now give the order to pile balls and bodies into the box. Goals required."

Nicky Clark gets away a shot that takes a nick off a defender before looping up towards the Queens goal but keeper Zander Clark collects.

The ball bobbles around the Queen of the South box as Rangers threaten at a corner. Shots from Haris Vuckic and Marius Zaliukas are blocked.

David Templeton's evening is over. He is replaced by Rangers substitute Robbie Crawford.

Queen of the South's counter-attacking continues to cause Rangers problems. Some last-ditch defending averts the danger as the hosts go three on two in a breakaway.
