RANGERS defeated Killie at Ibrox on Saturday and here we’ve pulled together some of the best facts and figures from the game.

1 – Prior to Saturday, Rangers had failed to beat Kilmarnock in the last three league meetings, dating back to their last victory in September 2011, but they had knocked Killie out of the Scottish Cup on two occasions over this period.

14 – Kris Boyd holds the distinction of being top scorer in this fixture since the start of the SPL in 1998 for both Rangers and Kilmarnock. Boyd netted 14 league goals for Gers against Killie and his strike in the first meeting this season was his fourth for the Rugby Park side against the Light Blues.

23 – The Gers won the game against Killie 3-0 and that is the most common scoreline in the League in fixtures between the sides, having happened on no fewer than 23 times, with 18 of them being at Ibrox.

100 – The Light Blues picked up their ninth clean sheet of the season with the win over Kilmarnock. However, it was a landmark one for Gers keeper Wes Foderingham who with that shut out kept his one hundredth competitive clean sheet of his career.

64 – Mark Warburton’s men had 64 percent of possession in the match against Killie, 4 percent above the season average of 60 percent and level with the 2015/16 season average of 64 percent.

30 – The Gers scored their thirtieth goal from inside the box against Killie this season from a total of 35 goals, an average of 1.9 goals per game, compared to an average of 0.8 conceded per match. Andy Halliday’s penalty was the fourth from the spot this season and the third that the midfielder has scored from the spot this campaign.
