Rangers make it 13 wins on the trot

Rangers have continued their dominant beginning to the Scottish League One season by stretching their winning streak to 13 matches.

The Ibrox club beat Arbroath 3-0 at Gayfield on Monday night to take their points tally to the maximum 39 and increasing their goal difference to plus 44, which has them sitting 11 points clear of second-place Dunfermline Athletic with a game in hand.

Goals from Jon Daly and Nicky Clark either side of a Bradley Donaldson own-goal allowed 'Gers to grab yet another victory which thrilled manager Ally McCoist who was full of praise for the former after he extended his scoring run to seven straight games.

"It's an amazing achievement. It doesn't matter the league or the opposition, because that record is fantastic," said McCoist.

"We are playing sides who make it very, very difficult for you.

"That Arbroath team got a draw at Celtic Park, only lost the replay 1-0, and played really well for 75 minutes at Ibrox this year.

"So these are tough places to come, no matter what people think.

"For Jon to continue that scoring rate, scoring in consecutive games, is a terrific achievement.

"I don't think I had a run like that. I did get one or two more than him, right enough, but I can't remember scoring in seven straight games."
