Was it a good game? It produced four goals but it wasn’t as exciting as you would expect. Rangers made life difficult by allowing Falkirk to pull it back to 2-1 just before the interval. They scored a third goal to make sure. The game died in the second half but for Walter Smith’s men it was all about getting back to winning ways. Who scored? Kris Boyd continues to close in on Henrik Larsson’s SPL goalscorin­g record with a first-half double. Falkirk’s Pedro Moutinho gave his side a lifeline when he netted just before the interval but Rangers’ twogoal advantage was restored when Kenny Miller netted from a penalty. Rangers’ best player? Steven Davis hasn’t been at his best but he played a crucial role in Rangers’ opening two goals. Falkirk’s top man? Robert Olejnik made a string of crucial saves, especially during the second half. What about the ref? Willie Collum followed the letter of the law by booking Kris Boyd for his goal celebratio­ns which was harsh but he got most decisions correct. Who is up next? They might be heading out of Europe but Rangers travel to Spain this week to take on Sevilla for a final Champions League group clash on Wednesday.
