Ross County dropped to seventh place in the Ladbrokes Premiership after second placed Rangers took a 4-0 win back to Glasgow. The win sees Rangers keep up the pace with Champions Celtic, where as the Staggies fall out of the top 6 after a good draw at Easter Road last time out.
Rangers took the lead with 20 minutes on the clock. Ojo made a great run from the left hand side with the ball and picked out Alfredo Morelos at the back post. The striker was found in an acre of space and tapped past Laidlaw from 5 yards to give the visitors the lead.
9 minutes later the visitors would extend their lead. This time Ryan Jack pulled the ball on to his right foot on the edge of the box before curling an effort across the goal and beyond the reach of Laidlaw.
With 8 minutes left in the first half Rangers would score their third. In almost a carbon copy of his first goal, Ryan Jack again set the ball on his right foot before curling the ball across the goal again and sending the ball in to the bottom right hand corner for the second time in the half.
Rangers continued their positive play at the start of the second half and were unlucky not to score a fourth shortly after the break. The ball fell to Joe Aribo 8 yards out but he could only canon his effort from close range off the near post and eventually see the ball cleared.
With just over 20 minutes to go the Staggies almost managed to get back in to the game. Ross Draper shot from range and as the ball was travelling towards Foderingham’s goal it deflected off Brian Graham causing the ball to change course and come rebounding off the right hand post of the Jailend goal.
Rangers would score their fourth soon after with Alfredo Morelos claiming his 18th goal of the season from 16 matches played. The striker made a cross box run down to the left hand side area where he was played in neatly and slammed the ball across Laidlaw and in to the bottom right hand corner.
The Staggies now move on to a trip to Hamilton Accies this weekend who were on the end of a 1-0 loss at home to Aberdeen tonight.
