RANGERS kept their faint Scot­tish ti­tle hopes alive with a 2-0 win over Mother­well, while Hiber­nian were con­tro­ver­sially de­nied in their 0-0 draw against Ed­in­burgh ri­vals Hearts yes­ter­day. Birth­day boy Danny Wil­son cel­e­brated turn­ing 26 with the open­ing goal 10 min­utes af­ter the break be­fore Al­fredo More­los put the seal on vic­tory late on. Third placed Rangers looked nervy hav­ing thrown away leads against both St John­stone and Kil­marnock but this time held on for a vic­tory which keeps them 11 points be­hind lead­ers Celtic. But there was bad news for Rangers boss Graeme Murty as Ryan Jack was stretchered off seven min­utes be­fore the break, mak­ing him doubt­ful to face Celtic in this week­end’s Old Firm derby. At Tynecas­tle, Hiber­nian were fu­ri­ous when ref­eree Steven McLean and his as­sis­tant failed to spot Oli Shaw’s strike bounc­ing over the line. Shaw was so cer­tain his sev­enth minute ef­fort had gone in af­ter he hit Martin Boyle’s cut­back off the un­der­side of the bar that he started cel­e­brat­ing, but his joy was short-lived as McLean waved play on. The ball looked over the line and both the ref­eree and his as­sis­tant, Sean Carr, were well-placed but nei­ther called it and tele­vi­sion pic­tures proved them wrong.
