Rangers dropped further points in the Scottish Premier League as they managed a 2-2 draw in a pulsating encounter against Patrick Thistle.

Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos opened the scoring for the visitors – his eighth goal of the season already.

After the break, a deflected free-kick from Blair Spittal restored parity for the home side. And 10 minutes later, they took the lead through Chris Erskine.

The joy was short-lived as the 30-year-old midfielder received the marching orders for a lunge on Morelos in the 67th minute.

Rangers summer signing, Graham Dorrans curled in an equaliser in the 77th minute to rescue a point for the Gers.

Rangers had 17 shots during the match, with only four of them being on target, according to BBC Sport.

Former Celtic striker turned football pundit, Chris Sutton, has taken to Twitter to express his reaction on the match.

He said Rangers “can't quite see off 10 man Thistle”, but says it was a “great game”, and “great advert for Scottish football”. He tweeted:

The two sides will meet again in the League Cup on Tuesday.
