Goals from Nicky Clark, Andy Halliday and Martyn Waghorn give Rangers a 3-0 half-time lead against Airdrieonians in the Scottish League Cup.
Three goals in the opening 15 minutes have given Rangers a commanding half-time advantage against Airdrieonians in the Scottish League Cup.
The visitors opened the scoring as early as the fifth minute through Nicky Clark, who got on the end of a quick free kick from Andy Halliday to steer the ball into the net at the near post.
Airdrie needed to settle, but as the game approached the quarter-hour mark, Rangers effectively booked their place in the next round with two more goals in the space of 60 seconds.
Firstly, Halliday netted a strike from 25 yards to double their advantage, before Martyn Waghorn received a pass from on-loan midfielder Gedion Zelalem and struck the ball past a helpless Neil Parry.
Rangers continued to push forward, with Waghorn driving just wide and Zelalem having an effort saved from distance, but the home side managed to keep the deficit down to three.
Dominic Ball and James Tavernier also had opportunities as the half drew to a close, but the Glasgow giants had to settle for just the three goals at the break. body check tags ::
