Rangers found the net five times as they saw off Dundee in the Development League. Three goals in seven first half minutes from Ross Lyon, Andy Dallas and Jamie Barjonas put the Gers in control, with second half goals from Serge Atakayi and Kyle Bradley sealing the points for the Glasgow side, against a Dundee team that featured Kosta Gadzhalov, Nick Ross and Henrik Ojamaa.
After a back and forth opening, Rangers took the lead after nine minutes. Fraser Kemp’s under hit pass back to Calum Ferrie was pounced upon by Ross Lyon, who curled the ball past the oncoming keeper from a tight angle.
Things got worse for the Dees as they fell further behind four minutes later. Lyon’s low corner was met by an unmarked Andy Dallas, who swept the ball home from close range.
Rangers added a third in controversial circumstances after 16 minutes. Liam Burt looked to go down inside the area with little contact from Ferrie, but the referee pointed to the spot, and Jamie Barjonas sent his penalty into the bottom right corner of the net, leaving Rangers 3-0 ahead.
Dundee’s best chance of the half came after 26 minutes, when Mark Smith pounced on a loose ball in the Rangers defence, but his shot was saved by Robby McCrorie.
