Antonio Colak scored a brace to help Rangers produce one of the comfortable football results of the weekend in the Scottish Premiership. John Lunstram opened the scoring in the 24th minute before Colak doubled their advantage in the 39th minute. He made it three in the 58th minute before Steve Davis completed the scoring in the 80th minute.
Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst: “Very pleased with the performance, a clean sheet. The result was what we wanted and we scored four fantastic goals. You want to start well and we did, so we’re very happy to score two goals in the first half, to make sure we had a comfortable lead. After that, we continued to play in the same way in the second half. I’m very pleased with [Colak’s form]. He’s giving us goals, but not only goals – but his performance is also very good. It’s a fantastic start and now he needs to keep going. [Sands] was already on a yellow. It’s one of those fouls where it could go either way. So, for us, it was lucky that he didn’t get a second yellow. Sometimes you are lucky with cards, sometimes it doesn’t go your way – that’s the way the game goes.”
Ross County manager Malky Mackay: “We started well, settled into the game, and then in the 16th or 17th minute, a decision happens which is beyond me – to why [Sands] isn’t sent off. He’s already been booked but it’s inexplicable how it’s not a straight red, never mind a booking which would take him off as well. There’s no reason for my player to go down there, he’s away. Rangers took him off at half-time which shows what they think. There’s still 75 minutes to go, but that changes the balance of the games. Aberdeen and Livingston were 0-0 today after 40 minutes. Livingston gets a man sent off and it ends up 5-0 to Aberdeen.”
