Senior player mystery deepens: Three things learned from Rangers defeat v Kilmarnock


Rangers lost 2-1 to Kilmarnock on Saturday afternoon after a lethargic performance in Graeme Murty’s first game after being named as manager until the end of the season.

The Gers took a first-half lead through Declan John but were second best for long spells of the game and conceded twice in a few second-half minutes to turn the game on its head.

Kris Boyd’s double secured the three points for Steve Clarke’s side as Rangers fell to their second consecutive defeat.

The Light Blues will have to dust themselves off and prepare for Wednesday’s clash with Motherwell before a trip to Celtic Park next weekend.

Rangers were sloppy in possession although they did have a number of chances of their own to kill the game off and take the three points back to Ibrox.
