Rangers celebrated Steven Gerrard's 150th game as manager by stretching their Scottish Premiership lead to 23 points after thumping Ross County.

Poor marking allowed Ryan Kent and Filip Helander to head the home side into a healthy lead before Joe Aribo's fine finish before half-time.

Ryan Jack scored his return from injury before Connor Goldson's headed finish.

They could even afford a missed penalty from James Tavernier as they remain unbeaten in the league this season.

County struck woodwork twice after the break, but by then Rangers were well on their way to their ninth win in a row over the side who remain third bottom of the table.
