  2. Post update

    Rangers manager Mark Warburton

    "I'm very pleased with the performance. I think we deserved to lead 1-0 at half-time. That (Lyle's) was not a red card, it was a very harsh decision. I was five yards away. The guys were charged up, there was nothing that merited a red card. Rob (Kiernan) was just looking after his team-mates but it was a yellow card at worst. I thought we moved the ball well and created chances. To come to this type of venue and that type of surface, I am very pleased. There is a good blend at the moment."

  3. Post update

    Queen of the South manager James Fowler

    "(On Andy Dowie incident at the penalty) Andy gets his body in front of the Rangers player and manages to block him off. I'll take that one on the chin but I'll need to look at it again. We've had a decent start with three wins from four games. We'll take the positives and move on to next week. Rangers are flying just now. They tired us out with the ball movement."

  4. Post update

    Queen of the South manager James Fowler

    "To go down to 10 men made it a very difficult afternoon. If both players had been shown yellows I don't think anybody would have complained. We had a great chance before half-time with Ryan Conroy."

  10. Post update

    Former Rangers midfielder Alex Rae

    "Queens became dishevelled and lost their discipline but overall Rangers were deserving winners."

  11. FULL-TIME

    Queen of the South 1-5 Rangers

    Rangers make it four wins on the trot with a trouncing of Queens, who will wonder what hit them in the second half. Rangers were the better team in the opening period but not by a great margin. Their 1-0 lead was just about right. However, when Derek Lyle was sent off soon after the re-start and seconds later Rangers won a penalty that was converted by Martyn Waghorn, there was only going to be one winner.

  12. Post update

    Queen of the South 1-5 Rangers

    Andy Halliday doesn't connect well at all with his left-footed free-kick in the dying seconds. It will finish 5-1.

  13. INJURY TIME

  15. YELLOW CARD

    Queen of the South 1-5 Rangers

    Rangers centre-half Rob Kiernan is next to go into Bobby Madden's wee book with a desperate sliding challenge.

  16. Post update

    Queen of the South 1-5 Rangers

    Darren Brownlie sends Rangers double scorer Martyn Waghorn crumpling to the artificial turf with a rash challenge from behind. Seeking sporting vengeance, Waghorn lines up the free-kick but hits it over the bar.

  17. Post update

    Queen of the South 1-5 Rangers

    Nathan Oduwa does a stylish step-over and skips past his marker, runs along the goal-line to the left of the Queens target and tries to score from an impossible angle rather than cutting it back to a team-mate.

  18. Post update

    Queen of the South 1-5 Rangers

    BBC Scotland football pundit Derek Ferguson

    "David Weir is in the Rangers technical area with a look of disgust on his face."

  19. GOAL

    Queen of the South 1-5 Rangers (Smith)

    Aidan Smith gives the home fans something to cheer about as 10-man Queens pull a goal back. Smith was too fast and too alert for the Rangers central defence who were caught out by a long ball over the top. The 18-year-old latched on to it and finished expertly past Wes Foderingham for his first goal of the season.

  20. YELLOW CARD

    Iain Russell was shown a yellow card for that hand ball at the free-kick. What was the Queens forward thinking about?!

  21. GOAL

    Queen of the South 0-5 Rangers (Waghorn, pen)

    Martyn Waghorn scores his second penalty of the game and takes his season tally to six goals. That was a peach of a spot kick, left-footed high into the top right-hand corner of the net.

  22. PENALTY

    Rangers win a penalty as Iain Russell leaps to block a free-kick with his arm. The free-kick came about when Kyle Hutton barged over Rangers skilful midfielder Nathan Oduwa.

    Alex, Wellingborough: "What you have to realise is we have abysmal referees in Scotland. We Hearts fans were reminded of this loud and clear yesterday."

    Rangers make a change. James Tavernier makes way for Fraser Aird.

  26. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-4 Rangers

    Both sets of fans hold their breath as James Tavernier lines up a free-kick. On this occasion the talented right-back curls a shot over the wall of blue Queens shirts and into the arms of home goalie Robbie Thomson.

  27. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-4 Rangers

    That red card for Derek Lyle has changed the complexion of the match. Rangers are turning on the style but Queen of the South were evidently still in the game at 1-0 and with 11 men on the pitch.

  28. GOAL

    Queen of the South 0-4 Rangers (McKay)

    It's painful viewing for the home fans as Rangers move four goals clear thanks to Barrie McKay's simple tap-in finish to round off an incisive move by Kenny Miller and Martyn Waghorn.

  29. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-3 Rangers

    Queens youngster Aidan Smith cracks in a shot from long range that requires Wes Foderingham to dive to his right and make a good save.

  30. GOAL

    Queen of the South 0-3 Rangers (Holt)

    Jason Holt scores from a tight angle on the right to put Rangers firmly in control.

  31. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-2 Rangers

    I'm still trying to get my head round those decisions by Bobby Madden. Rob Kiernan was the player who rushed up to Derek Lyle to confront him. You could say he was the aggressor. However, he kept his head still while Lyle made that nodding motion with his head into the big Rangers defender's and that was that - red card. Yet prior to that, Mark Millar was only shown a yellow card for standing on Gedion Zelalem after he had tripped the Rangers midfielder up. Not sure if you saw Charlie Adam's red card yesterday - this, I reckon, was worse. Then, Queens' Andy Dowie should certainly have been sent off for denying a goalscoring opportunity but was only yellow-carded.

  32. GOAL

    Queen of the South 0-2 Rangers (Waghorn, pen)

    If it rains, it pours. Still reeling from Derek Lyle's red card, Queens concede a penalty when Andy Dowie makes a blatant barge on Dominic Ball just as he was about to knock the ball into the Queens net. Incredibly, the referee shows Dowie only a yellow card, but points to the penalty spot and Martyn Waghorn slots it home with aplomb.

  33. PENALTY

    Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

    Rangers win a penalty.

  34. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

    Well, that red card makes things very difficult for Queen of the South. Derek Lyle and Rob Kiernan went forehead to forehead and the former makes the mistake of moving his head forward in a butting motion and is sent packing. There really wasn't much in that at all. Kiernan wasn't spoken to at all.

  35. RED CARD

    Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

    Queens striker Derek Lyle is sent off.

  36. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

    Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

    Despite blowing the chance to get a shot at goal just before the break, Queens will believe they can get back into this game. They started the game very brightly, though faded. James Fowler will be telling his players how important it is to score the next goal.

    Ryan Conroy will be kicking himself that he didn't try his luck from the right-hand side of the box, 12 yards out. Instead, he tried to roll it across to Derek Lyle but Rangers managed to clear their lines. That was a major chance.

    We're in to injury time at the end of the first half.

  46. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

    Rangers have settled down into the match and Queens are finding it harder to retain the ball and keep the visitors pressed back, whether that's because Rangers are getting used to the surface and finding their rhythm or Queens are getting tired.

  47. Post update

    Chris Higgins puts his defence in trouble with a wayward header but helps to mop up the danger after Martyn Waghorn had set up Barrie McKay.

    Wes Foderingham is called into action in the Rangers goal to save a blistering shot by Alex Harris, the 20-year-old on loan from Queens' Championship rivals Hibernian.

  50. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

    Andy Halliday finds James Tavernier on the right and even though the angle makes a shot at goal increasingly difficult, the Rangers full-back has a go...which results in a horribly off-target effort. Martyn Waghorn, unmarked on the penalty spot, does not think much of that.

  52. GOAL

    Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers (Halliday)

    At the end of a brisk counter attack, Barrie McKay slips the ball to Andy Halliday who moves into the Queens box and clips the ball over goalkeeper Robbie Thomson.

  53. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Great defending by Queen of the South to deny, first, Kenny Miller who had chested down a long ball from defence and made his way into the box. The experienced striker did well to pick out team-mate Jason Holt whose shot was blocked. Queen break quickly and Iain Russell shoots high over the Rangers bar.

  54. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Thankfully, Jacobs is OK to continue. He won't want to be stretching into tackles any time soon.

  55. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Kyle Jacobs receives treatment after stretching too far to halt a Rangers attack. He might have pulled his hamstring or given himself a groin strain.

  56. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Barrie McKay slips Andy Dowie tight on the touchline with the kind of lovely flick that reminds defenders why they are defenders - that was a lovely piece of skill.

  57. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Rangers defender James Tavernier gets in to an advanced position and tugs a shot a foot or so wide of Robbie Thomson's right-hand post.

  58. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Barrie McKay provides Lee Wallace with a chance to shoot at goal with a nicely weighted pass. However, the Rangers captain fires his effort across the face of the target. The Queens keeper has been untroubled so far.

    Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Andy Dowie and Mark Millar are central to a Queens attack which draws a clumsy challenge by Rangers centre-half Rob Kiernan. Mark Millar crashes the Queens free-kick into the visitors' wall from 25 yards and the match stays goalless.

    Palmerston Park is one of those great stadiums in Scotland where local residents can watch the game from their living rooms.

  62. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Jason Holt is tripped by Kyle Jacobs in midfield and Rangers have a chance to ease the pressure being exerted by the home side. It looks like James Fowler has told his players to play at a high tempo and close Rangers down quickly.

  63. Post update

    Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    James Tavernier and Queens' Chris Higgins collide as the Rangers right-back pushes forward. They bounced off one another but were quick to their feet. No harm done.

  64. Post update

    Mark Millar rasps in a corner kick from the left for Queens and Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham makes a solid two-fisted clearance.

    Queen of the South manager James Fowler

    "A lot of the older heads are still here. They have made the new boys very welcome. I know the number of players we lost was in double figures over the summer. There's a big challenge but as a club we are aiming for the top four (in the Championship). Last year we had a decent home record. It's a different Rangers team and management this year. They have been on fire. We have to be defensively sound and not let them score an early goal. We have had a good start with three wins but with the budget Rangers have they are the strong favourites for the league."

  71. Post update

    Rangers manager Mark Warburton

    "When we played on this (artificial) surface (elsewhere), Jason Holt did very well. It's making sure we use our resources but that we have strength on the bench. The role of experienced players like Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace is important. We never under-estimate any team in the division but we are confident in our own abilities. We are bedding in and getting used to each other. We are ahead of the curve."
