Rangers defeated St Mirren 2-0 yesterday which keeps the side six points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table heading into the winter break. Although it was the way that the side won which is the main talking point, stats show that Rangers were utterly dominant throughout.

There were only 500 supporters at the match due to the new government guidelines being introduced, but this did not seem to affect the team who strolled through the 90 minutes.

Scott Wright grabbed the first goal with a header before Alfredo Morelos continued his fine run of form under Giovanni van Bronckhorst as he scored a second which effectively settled the match.


The most impressive part was just how much Rangers controlled the match, as some incredible stats emerged after the game which outlines just how good the Ibrox side has been under the Dutchman.

Rangers perhaps should have scored more, after registering 25 shots on goal compared to just one for St Mirren. This is maybe the only downside to the victory; it could have been a landslide.

The Gers dominated possession too, having 76.5% of the ball during the whole match which suggests the team is confident with dictating play.

This was a solid display for the side and one in which they didn’t have to get out of second gear, there will be tougher tests in the future, yet the club just doesn’t look like losing at the minute.

The next match is against Aberdeen on January 18, hopefully, the three-week break can allow those injured more time to recover and give the players a much-needed rest before they chase glory on three fronts.

Meanwhile, there has been one player who has arguably benefitted the most from the new management team after his excellent return to form of late.
