Rangers continued their seemingly unstoppable march to the Scottish Premiership title with a resounding 4-1 win over Dundee United at Ibrox on Sunday.

Ianis Hagi poked the hosts ahead 10 minutes before half-time and Ryan Kent’s deflected strike soon doubled their advantage.

The second half was a stroll in the Glasgow spring sunshine as first Joe Aribo’s rocket made it 3-0 to Steven Gerrard’s side three minutes after the interval, before Alfredo Morelos – not that the striker knew anything about it – added a fortuitous fourth on 64 minutes after a mistake by Benjamin Siegrist.

Rangers could have scored a fifth, only for Siegrist to make up for his earlier error by keeping out Borna Barisic’s penalty, while the visitors did grab a late consolation thanks to substitute Marc McNulty’s fine individual strike.

As a result, Rangers have moved 18 points clear of second-placed Celtic ahead of the champions’ trip to Ross County later on Sunday night, meaning they are now just 10 points away from the title.
