Fashion Sakala scored a hat-trick as Rangers powered past 10-man Motherwell to

stretch their Scottish Premiership lead to four points.

Bevis Mugabi squeezed the hosts in front but Rangers captain James Tavernier stroked in a superb

volley and then crossed for Sakala to turn the game around on half-time.

Sakala added further strikes either side of Glen Kamara’s fine goal in the second half with Motherwell
captain Stephen O’Donnell sent off at 3-1. Kemar Roofe rounded off a thumping win.

The victory means Steven Gerrard’s side are four points clear of second-place Celtic, with Hearts and

Dundee United also dropping points this weekend. The bruising loss keeps Motherwell seventh.

Rangers initially produced their archetypal league display so far as they conceded first for the ninth time

in all competitions and third time in a week in the Premiership, only to shake themselves to life and

turn the game in style.

First, left-back Calvin Bassey was allowed to swing a high ball in which found Tavernier at the back post,

and he composed himself impressively to take it first time and drill into the far corner.

Having started brightly, Motherwell lost their way and were kept at arm’s length by a dominant Rangers performance.

Sakala eventually netted the third goal with a strike on the edge of the box that struck Sean Goss and flew past Kelly

in the Motherwell goal.

Fashion Sakala stretched to finish for Rangers’ fifth goal and his hat-trick.

Sakala not only took his goals well, but was lively in recording five key passes and the most shots of any Rangers player.

He just gets the nod ahead of the outstanding Tavernier and he is one of Rangers best players of the squard by his performance.
