    Almost time for me to go. Just time for me to tell you about our weekend coverage...

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

  6. TEXT 80295

    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."

  9. Post update

    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."

  10. Post update

  11. 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.

  12. #bbcscotfootball

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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 !"

  16. GREAT SAVE!

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

  17. ADDED TIME

    There will be three minutes of stoppage time.

  18. Post update

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

  19. Post update

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

  20. Post update

    Gavin Reilly and Kevin Holt

  21. Post update

    Jake Pickard comes on for Queen of the South forward Derek Lyle.

  22. 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."

  23. Post update

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

  24. Post update

    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."

  26. Post update

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

  27. Post update

    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.

  28. GREAT SAVE!

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

  29. Post update

    Ryan Hardie replaces Kenny Miller for Rangers.

  30. Post update

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

  31. Post update

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

  32. 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.

  33. 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.

  34. Post update

    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.

  35. #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."

  36. Post update

    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.

  37. Post update

    Lewis Kidd and Lee Wallace
    Image caption: Lewis Kidd (right) sent in a cross that led to Queens' second with Rangers' Lee Wallace (right) getting the final touch into the net
  38. Post update

    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.

  39. Post update

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

  40. Post update

    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.

  41. Post update

    A bit more concerning for the home keeper is a bouncing backpass from Chris Higgins, which Clark heads clear.

  42. Post update

    A hopeful cross into the box by David Templeton is gleefully collected by Queen of the South goalkeeper Zander Clark.

  43. Post update

    Lewis Kidd has been credited with Queen of the South's second goal but it looks like an own goal by Lee Wallace on the TV replays.

  44. YELLOW CARD

    Rangers winger David Templeton is booked for simulation after going down too easily for referee Don Robertson's liking.

  45. Post update

    That goal came within 16 seconds of the second-half kick-off.

  46. GOAL

    Queen of the South 2-0 Rangers (Wallace, own goal)

    And the hosts double their lead almost straight from kick-off. The Rangers defence is all at sea as Lewis Kidd's plays a low ball across the face of goal and Lee Wallace turns into his own net.

  47. KICK-OFF

    Queen of the South begin the second half.

  48. TEXT 80295

    James in Giffnock: "Rangers form although improved under Stuart McCall are still not dominating games and look vulnerable at times. You certainly would not put your house on them getting through the playoffs at the end of the season."

  49. Post update

    BBC Radio Scotland pitchside reporter Chick Young says a smoke bomb was let off among the travelling fans during the first half.

  50. PUNDITS' VIEWS

    Falkirk manager Peter Houston: "Rangers have been the better, more enterprising side and there hasn't been a failure in their team. But Queen of the South have always been dangerous on the counter. However, there's plenty of football in this game yet."

    Former Rangers player Derek Ferguson: "I thought Queens would have more of the ball, but the goal is what they are all about. Rangers have made numerous shots, but they haven't even made it to the goal because of the blocks by not just the defence but the whole team."

  51. HALF-TIME

    Queen of the South 1-0 Rangers

    Derek Lyle's strike separates the sides at the break. Queens were second best for much of the half but that goal has put them on course to move up to fourth in the Scottish Championship.

    Queen of the South players celebrating
  52. #bbcscotfootball

    bringthemonjpn: "#bbcscotfootball Bit of a shock there for Rangers (second of the day) but they should still have just enough to turn this match around."

    Derek Lyle scores for Queen of the South against Rangers
    Image caption: This was the moment Derek Lyle fired Queen of the South in front against Rangers
  54. Post update

    Further pressure from Rangers but Queens weather the storm. We certainly have a game on now.

  55. HITS THE WOODWORK

    And now Rangers hit the frame of the goal as Kenny Miller's header comes back off the crossbar.

  56. CLOSE!

    Zander Clark commits himself to try and get to Darren McGregor's cross into the Queens box btu Rangers forward Nicky Clark just gets there first and sends a header off the keeper and wide.

  57. Post update

    Queens have their tails up now. Goalscorer Derek Lyle finds Gavin Reilly in space on the right and the forward tests Lee Robinson with a low strike towards the near post.

  58. GOAL

    Queen of the South 1-0 Rangers (Lyle)

    Out of nowhere, Queens take the lead. Lewis Kidd escapes Lee Wallace's challenge on the right and finds Derek Lyle, who tees himself up for a half-volley that he executes superbly.

  59. Post update

    Rob Maclean

    Sportsound commentator

    "James Fowler must be concerned about the quality of distribution from Queen of the South."

  60. Post update

    Another Rangers shot blocked. This time it's David Templeton, who cuts in from the left and fizzes in an effort that cannons off the head of Andy Dowie.

  61. Post update

  63. CLOSE!

    David Templeton fires a cross into the Queens box and the ball deceives everyone and almost catches out goalkeeper Zander Clark before drifting just wide.

  64. Post update

    Quick break from Rangers and Nicky Clark hammers in a shot that smacks off a defender and out for a corner.

  65. Post update

    Rangers comfortable in possession in the opening 20 minutes without really testing Queens.

  66. Post update

    Rangers win a couple of corners and stretch the Queens defence but goalkeeper Zander Clark is not called into action.

  69. Post update

    Some concern for Queen of the South with goalkeeper Zander Clark coming off worst in a challenge with Nicky Clark outside the area.

    The stopper is not moving comfortably and reserve keeper Jim Atkinson is getting prepared to come on just in case.

  70. Post update

    A moment of uncertainty for Bilel Mohsni early in the match. The Rangers defender retrieves the ball midway inside his own half and then, under no pressure, smacks the ball out of play, prompting ironic cheers from the home fans.

  71. KICK-OFF

    Game is underway.

  72. Post update

    Queens and Rangers players are out on the pitch and the visitors will kick off.
