Scottish Premiership round-up: Gerrard gets first Rangers win as Hibs draw at St Johnstone

Steven Gerrard got his first Scottish Premiership win as Rangers manager as his side beat St Mirren at Ibrox despite having a man sent off for the second game in a row.

Latest Scottish Premiership table


Ten-man Rangers avoided a repeat of their Pittodrie slip-up last week as they went a man down for the second week running after Ross McCrorie received a straight red card midway through the first half.

But by that point the Light Blues were already two goals to the good thanks to strikes from Alfredo Morelos and stand-in captain Connor Goldson.

They surrendered victory in stoppage time of their opening-day clash at Aberdeen but there was never any danger of that happening this time as Alan Stubbs' Buddies failed to make the most of their numerical advantage.

They did come close when Danny Mullen clipped the crossbar just before half-time but Stubbs' frustration will match that of his old Merseyside derby foe Gerrard, who will feel aggrieved that another promising display was ruined by a sending off.

Morelos was freed to play after his Dons dismissal was overturned on appeal and he took out his frustration on the Buddies with the 14th-minute opener as he carried out Gerrard's instruction to press the visitors at every opportunity.

St Johnstone 1-1 Hibernian

Oli Shaw's second goal of the Premiership campaign earned Hibernian a deserved point against St Johnstone.

Saints opened the scoring against the run of play midway through the first half when Tony Watt's speculative effort deflected in off Ryan Porteous.

But Shaw headed home Martin Boyle's cross early in the second half to add to his goal against Motherwell last weekend.

The visitors continued to create chances but St Johnstone also had opportunities in the second period of the 1-1 McDiarmid Park draw.

Hibs made four changes in the midst of their Europa League encounter with Molde with Emerson Hyndman making his full debut. New signing Daryl Horgan was named on the bench following his move from Preston on Saturday.
