COMMENT

Rangers booked their place in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup with a convincing 4-1 win over Falkirk at Ibrox on Sunday.

The Gers made three changes to the side who beat St. Johnstone on Tuesday night with Jak Alnwick, Bruno Alves and Jason Cummings replacing Wes Foderingham, Russell Martin and Jamie Murphy.

Graeme Murty’s side fired themselves into an early lead after putting the Bairns under pressure from the word go and opened the scoring from a fantastic Cummings strike.

Just five minutes later the visitors equalised after Craig Sibbald’s sliced shot cannoned off Aaron Muirhead and ended up in the net.

Within 30 seconds of the restart, the Light Blues restored their lead after cutting through the Falkirk defence with ease, allowing Cummings to grab his second of the afternoon.

An own goal from Muirhead made it 3-1 before half-time before Cummings sealed his hat-trick with a tap in after Alfredo Morelos saw his shot saved.

The win over the Bairns takes the Gers recent run to six consecutive wins ahead of next week’s Old Firm clash with Celtic and puts the Gers in the draw for the semi-finals.
