SCOTT ARFIELD netted a double as Rangers secured passage to the quarter-final of the Scottish Cup this afternoon with victory over Hamilton Accies.
The Canadian Captain netted a rebounded penalty in the first-half to hand his side the lead, but Lewis Smith grabbed an equaliser to send the sides in level at the break. Joe Aribo, Alfredo Morelos and then a stinging long-ranger from Arfield in injury time secured a, in the end, comfortable victory for Steven Gerrard’s side.
From the team which defeated Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership in midweek, Gerrard made just the one change with Glen Kamara replacing Steven Davis in midfield.
Rangers began the game well, and should have been ahead inside five minutes. Patient play on the left saw Glen Kamara slip Ryan Kent in, and he stood a lovely ball up to the back post for Iainis Hagi to head wide of the left-hand post.
