Rangers 4 Dundee United 0

Dundee United felt the full force of Rangers following a 4-0 defeat at Ibrox. The visitors trailed at the break courtesy of Sean Dillon's own goal before Kenny Miller later scored twice and substitute Steven Naismith also found the target.

But the Arabs cause was hardly helped when already without both Danny Swanson and Craig Conway, they also lost Garry Kenneth, Barry Douglas and David Goodwillie during the game.

Rangers went ahead as early as nine minutes when Dillon diverted the ball into his own net following a cross by Steven Davis.

Allan McGregor smothered from Morgaro Gomis as the visitors tried to reply before Vladimir Weiss was narrowly wide at the opposite end.

The Tangerines continued to threaten though, with Gomis turning an attempt wide before Daly soon headed off-target.

However, Dusan Pernis was called upon to keep out Nikica Jelavic after the Croatian had stolen possession from Scott Severin early in the second-half.

Jelavic also missed with a header from a cross by Stephen Whittaker, who also drove straight at Pernis after being set-up by Miller.

Arabs striker Goodwillie forced McGregor into action in between times, while opposite number Pernis had to parry from Lee McCulloch before Miller slotted in a second goal from close-range on 69 minutes.

Eight minutes later substitute Naismith's head connected with a David Weir cross to advance the Rangers lead, and Jelavic then sent in Miller for his second of the afternoon within five minutes.
