Giovanni Van Bronckhorst’s team continues its successful run in the Scottish Premiership. Rangers were shaken but out when they faced St. Johnstone on Wednesday.

Ryan Kent sealed the match with a 2-0 goal for Rangers on his return from the locker room (50th).

In the absence of their key players, Celtic came to Ross County with a completely modified eleven.
