RANGERS dramatically defeated Motherwell at Ibrox thanks to a last minute Miller goal – but what happened across the rest of the League?
First up on Friday night was Dundee against Hamilton Accies as the Dens Park side looked to bounce back from defeat to the Light Blues. It wasn’t to be as Martin Canning’s Accies drew 1-1 with Paul Hartley’s men thanks to goals from Darren Lyon and Mark O’Hara.
On Saturday, Hearts got their season up and running with a 5-1 win over Inverness Caley Thistle, who have yet to pick up a point this season. Braces from Don Cowie and Sam Nicholson and one from Connor Sammon were too much for Caley, who pulled one back through Ross Draper.
Celtic, who have played one less game than the rest of the league, won their second game of the season after a slight scare by St Johnstone in the second half. Brendan Rodgers’ men were three up at the break through Leigh Griffiths, Scott Sinclair and James Forrest. Danny Swanson and Steven MacLean pulled goals back before Ryan Christie secured the win for Celtic in injury time.
Liam Boyce continued his good start to the season by scoring a double as Ross County defeated Lee Clark’s Kilmarnock 2-0 at the Global Energy Stadium.
Nial McGinn and Miles Storey gave Aberdeen a narrow 2:1 win over Partick Thistle at Pittodrie after Sean Welsh had been sent off for the Jags. Chris Erskine pulled a goal back for Thistle in stoppage time, but it was too late to have any impact on the destination of the points.
Up next for Rangers is a Friday night trip to Kilmarnock to face Kilmarnock this week, with Mark Warburton looking to make it three wins in a row in the League.
Elsewhere Celtic will welcome Aberdeen to Celtic Park on Saturday, Hamilton take on Ross County and Inverness take on St Johnstone. Following the disappointment of the defeat to the Gers on Saturday, Motherwell face Dundee with Partick Thistle taking on Hearts.
