Goals from Kyogo Furuhashi and Jota ensured the league leaders restored their six-point advantage over Rangers at the top of the table ahead of next week’s potentially decisive Old Firm fixture at Celtic Park.

The Portuguese winger then got his name on the scoresheet with three minutes remaining to seal the victory.
