“We started the game really well. I thought Rangers came into it. It looked like we were going to go in at the break all square. They score right before half-time which is a good time for them to get a goal.
"The second goal was always going to be crucial. The second half started in a similar tone to the way the first half ended. They had control of the game, they were controlling the ball.
"We changed to go 3-5-2 to put two up front to try and stop them getting the ball out so easily, put more pressure on them higher up the park.
"We then concede which shouldn’t happen with Lee Wallace running in behind. We talked about it all day yesterday, we know his threat going forward from left-back and we got done with it which is disappointing. Defensively it was poor.
"Once we got the goal we gave it a go but the damage was done with the second goal.”
Hamilton manager Martin Canning on BBC Radio Scotland
Rangers take the three points but were made to sweat after allowing Hamilton back into the match.
Martyn Waghorn returned to form, bagging two goals and delivering an excellent all-round performance.
Rangers were 2-0 up and dominant, but when Andy Halliday was caught out for Dougie Imrie to reduce the arrears it briefly looked like Mark Warburton's side may contrive to throw away two points.
However, they held on for the win which strengthens their grip on second place in the Premiership. They are now seven points clear of Aberdeen in third, albeit having played two more matches.
Ali Crawford unleashes a piledriver from long range which flies just over.
That is probably their last chance gone.
Michael Devlin and Joe Garner become embroiled in a minor confrontation down by the touchline, engaging in that ridiculous head-to-head thing that footballers do. Both are booked.
Scott McMann then decides to get involved and he too is booked.
Dougie Imrie is booked for a challenge on Barrie McKay as we enter three minutes of stoppage time.
Accies play themselves into bother and the ball is worked to James Tavernier inside the right-hand side of the box but he slashes his effort horribly wide.
Darian MacKinnon, no stranger to the referee's book, is booked for a late challenge on Andy Halliday.
Ali Crawford's free-kick delivery is met by the head of Georgios Sarris but his glancing effort is just wide.
Eamonn Brophy comes on to replace Rakish Bingham as Martin Canning makes his last change for Hamilton.

"There really should not have been a way back into this match for Hamilton and that is a real concern for Rangers."
From nowhere Hamilton are back in the game.
Only Andy Halliday knows what he was playing at as he dwells on the ball near his own byline and then cheaply surrenders possession to Danny Redmond. He keeps his cool to pick out Dougie Imrie to sweep the ball home from close range.
And Waghorn will not claim the hat-trick as he makes way for Harry Forrester.
Is the Rangers striker going to claim that hat-trick?
He climbs highest to meet Jason Holt's cross but can't get enough purchase on the header and his effort is well wide.
Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound
"It's been a poor second half performance from Hamilton. They now look very disjointed."
Hamilton lose possession on the edge of the Rangers box and are exposed on the counter.
Jason Tavernier travels towards the Accies penalty area and has options left and right but elects to go it alone and sends his shot blazing over the bar.
Martyn Waghorn with two goals has been Rangers' standout performer but Barrie McKay has been excellent too.
He leaves his man for dead with some lovely skill and drives to the byline but his cutback is cut out and Accies clear the danger.
If Hamilton had tried to play that open game against Celtic - Celtic would have scored a dozen goals.
"You want to get as many points on the board as you can before the winter break and Hamilton have got a real tough run of games coming up."
Dundee manager Paul Hartley on BBC Radio Scotland
Alex D'Acol departs for Hamilton and is replaced by Rakish Bingham.
Waghorn is involved again as he tees up Joe Garner to try a curling effort from the edge of the box that beats Gary Woods in the Accies goal but clears the crossbar by inches.
Hamilton are clinging on here.
Terrific play from Martyn Waghorn.
The striker looks like he wants to engineer a yard of space for a shot as he chases his hat-trick but he plays a lovely disguised pass to play in Lee Hodson but his first touch is poor and that allows Gary Woods to race out and make the save.
Alex D'Acol looks to catch out Wes Foderingham in the Rangers goal by taking on a strike very early but his powerful effort is always drifting off target.
It's that man again.
Barrie McKay clips a gorgeous ball down the line to send Lee Wallace galloping down the left. He lifts a beautiful ball into the box where a gleeful Martyn Waghorn is waiting to tuck the ball home from 5 yards out.
Three league goals for Waghorn this season and they have all come against Hamilton.
Martyn Waghorn has been Rangers' biggest threat this evening and he almost added to his first-half opener. The striker drives into the penalty box but his strike is straight at Gary Woods who makes the save.
Rangers get the second half under way.
Aberdeen have contacted the SPFL to say they are unhappy at having to travel to face Kilmarnock at 1pm on a Sunday, in what is their longest away trip of the season.
In a statement the club said: "The considerable Aberdeen away support, which is an important source of revenue to many clubs, find themselves in a position where train services on that date from Aberdeen will not enable supporters to get to Kilmarnock on time and the likely impact on the attendance will be considerable."The Dundee versus Rangers game on the same day kicks off at 3.15pm and it would have, we believe, been a sensible option to look at reversing the times."
Glasgow Warriors are backing up last weekend's famous win in Paris with another top performance against the same opposition in rugby's European Champions Cup.
They are 18-0 to the good and you can follow the second half action here.
The first half was evenly contested for long spells but Rangers started to put Accies under the cosh late in the half and were rewarded with the opening goal.
Martyn Waghorn's clever headed finish is the difference between the sides, but Martin Canning will be telling his players at the break that the next goal changes this match and it is crucial that Hamilton get it.
The pressure had been mounting and Rangers make the breakthrough.
Jason Holt gets to the byline and his cutback has plenty of pace which Martyn Waghhorn uses to place a stunning looping header into the net via the crossbar.
A really clever finish from the Rangers striker, his second league goal of the season.
He's only been on the field a couple of minutes but Massimo Donati can't resist letting rip with a half-volley from 25 yards. It's a sweet strike that flies only a few inches wide.
Jason Holt cuts in on his left foot and tries to place a finish past Gary Woods but the Accies keeper gets down well to tip the ball round the post.
The visitors starting to apply some pressure late in the half.
Greg Docherty hasn't recovered from that ankle knock and makes way for Massimo Donati.
Martyn Waghorn looks to curl an effort into Gary Woods' far corner and his effort is on target until Michael Devlin bravely puts his head in the way and diverts the ball behind for a corner.
The best chance of the game and it falls to Hamilton's Greg Docherty. He drives into the penalty area after some slack defending from James Tavernier and fires a shot just over the box. His team-mates may feel he should have squared it rather than going for goal from a tight angle.
Docherty has picked up a knock and is receiving treatment on the touchline.
