Champions Rangers Start Season With A Win

Posted by

Rangers began their first Scottish Premiership championship defence in ten years with victory thanks to Scott Wright’s spectacular finish.

Steven Gerrard’s side, who went undefeated in the league with a perfect home record last season, took an early lead when Ianis Hagi smashed a high shot into the net. However, their threat was neutralized until Wright curled a shot into the far corner with the outside of his boot, and fellow replacement Kemar Roofe scored a late third.

Ayo Obileye dreadfully miscued a clear header in the first half as Livingston failed to put a shot on goal. Gerrard’s team has certainly got more to offer, while Livingston’s new additions have had a bruising start to life in the Premier League.

The visitors deserve credit for controlling the game after a poor start, but were ultimately outclassed by Rangers’ greater skill.

Rangers will play Malmo in a first-leg qualifier in the Champions League on Tuesday (18:00 BST), while Livingston will visit Aberdeen in the Premiership on Sunday (15:00).
