Rangers player ratings v Falkirk: MOTM is 9/10 in quarter-final win
Rangers sealed their place in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup with a comfortable 4-1 win over Falkirk at Ibrox on Sunday.
The Gers made three changes to the side who beat St. Johnstone in midweek with Jak Alnwick, Bruno Alves and Jason Cummings replacing Wes Foderingham, Russell Martin and Jamie Murphy.
Graeme Murty’s side were quick out of the traps and looked to open up an early lead and forced five corners in the opening ten minutes as they put the Championship side under pressure.
The hosts pressure paid off after 15 minutes when Cummings picked the ball up on the edge of the box before driving forward and curling a shot in from a tight angle.
Just five minutes later the Bairns drew level after Craig Sibbald’s sliced shot cannoned off Aaron Muirhead and left Alnwick flat-footed.

Within 30 seconds of the restart, the Gers carved Falkirk open with absolute ease and scored their second of the afternoon through Cummings when Halliday teed the striker up perfectly to fire home.
Muirhead then scored past his own goalkeeper just before half-time to make it 3-1 and leave the Gers cruising.
Cummings finally grabbed his hat-trick when he followed up a Morelos shot and tapped home the rebound.
The win over the Bairns takes the Gers recent run to six consecutive wins ahead of next week’s Old Firm clash with Celtic.
