  6. 'We were poor defensively'

    FT: Hamilton 1-2 Rangers

    “We started the game really well. I thought Rangers came into it. It looked like we were going to go in at the break all square. They score right before half-time which is a good time for them to get a goal. 

    "The second goal was always going to be crucial. The second half started in a similar tone to the way the first half ended. They had control of the game, they were controlling the ball. 

    "We changed to go 3-5-2 to put two up front to try and stop them getting the ball out so easily, put more pressure on them higher up the park. 

    "We then concede which shouldn’t happen with Lee Wallace running in behind. We talked about it all day yesterday, we know his threat going forward from left-back and we got done with it which is disappointing. Defensively it was poor. 

    "Once we got the goal we gave it a go but the damage was done with the second goal.”

  7. FULL-TIME

    Hamilton 1-2 Rangers

    Rangers take the three points but were made to sweat after allowing Hamilton back into the match.

    Martyn Waghorn returned to form, bagging two goals and delivering an excellent all-round performance.

    Rangers were 2-0 up and dominant, but when Andy Halliday was caught out for Dougie Imrie to reduce the arrears it briefly looked like Mark Warburton's side may contrive to throw away two points.

    However, they held on for the win which strengthens their grip on second place in the Premiership. They are now seven points clear of Aberdeen in third, albeit having played two more matches.

  8. CLOSE!

    Hamilton 1-2 Rangers

    Ali Crawford unleashes a piledriver from long range which flies just over.

    That is probably their last chance gone.

  9. HANDBAGS

    Hamilton 1-2 Rangers

    Michael Devlin and Joe Garner become embroiled in a minor confrontation down by the touchline, engaging in that ridiculous head-to-head thing that footballers do. Both are booked.

    Scott McMann then decides to get involved and he too is booked.

  10. YELLOW CARD

    Hamilton 1-2 Rangers

    Dougie Imrie is booked for a challenge on Barrie McKay as we enter three minutes of stoppage time.

  11. CHANCE

    Hamilton 1-2 Rangers

    Accies play themselves into bother and the ball is worked to James Tavernier inside the right-hand side of the box but he slashes his effort horribly wide.

  12. YELLOW CARD

    Hamilton 1-2 Rangers

    Darian MacKinnon, no stranger to the referee's book, is booked for a late challenge on Andy Halliday.

  13. CLOSE!

    Hamilton 1-2 Rangers

    Ali Crawford's free-kick delivery is met by the head of Georgios Sarris but his glancing effort is just wide.

  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Hamilton 1-2 Rangers

    Eamonn Brophy comes on to replace Rakish Bingham as Martin Canning makes his last change for Hamilton.

  15. Sloppy Gers

    Hamilton 1-2 Rangers

    Steven Thompson

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

    "There really should not have been a way back into this match for Hamilton and that is a real concern for Rangers."

  16. GOAL Hamilton 1-2 Rangers

    Dougie Imrie

    From nowhere Hamilton are back in the game.

    Only Andy Halliday knows what he was playing at as he dwells on the ball near his own byline and then cheaply surrenders possession to Danny Redmond. He keeps his cool to pick out Dougie Imrie to sweep the ball home from close range.

    Game on!

    Dougie Imrie scores
  17. SUBSTITUTION

    Hamilton 0-2 Rangers

    And Waghorn will not claim the hat-trick as he makes way for Harry Forrester.

  18. Waghorn's wait for hat-trick

    Hamilton 0-2 Rangers

    Is the Rangers striker going to claim that hat-trick?

    He climbs highest to meet Jason Holt's cross but can't get enough purchase on the header and his effort is well wide.

  19. Hapless Hamilton

    Hamilton 0-2 Rangers

    Steven Thompson

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

    "It's been a poor second half performance from Hamilton. They now look very disjointed."
