Three cheers for Rangers’ Myles Beerman ahead of Celtic tie

All forgotten by the time the 90 minutes were up was the pedestrian performance from the home side in the game’s opening third. Victory will do that. Three consecutive clean sheets will do that. And back-to-back victories for the first time under new boss Pedro Caixinha – completed in the shadow of a looming Scottish
Cup semi-final with rivals 
Celtic – will, indeed, do just that.

With a double-header against Celtic just around the corner, this game had the potential to be a real banana skin for Rangers in their attempt to stay on the coat-tails of Aberdeen in the race for second. Instead, it could scarcely have been any more straightforward for Pedro Caixinha’s men, who racked up a third successive clean sheet without much of a fight from the away side.
