Steven Gerrard has his first Scottish Premiership win as Rangers boss as the Gers bounced back from conceding a last-gasp equaliser last weekend to claim a 2-0 win to move up to third in the table.

The Light Blues have made an excellent start to life under Gerrard and now have their first league win of the campaign as goals from Alfredo Morelos and Connor Goldson saw the home side record a victory over St Mirren.

 

It was perhaps all the more impressive given that Rangers had to play around an hour of the game with 10 men after Ross McCrorie was sent off. Like last week again Aberdeen however, Rangers managed to cope with the numerical disadvantage well.

One of the players who impressed in the victory was debutant Borna Barisic. The left-back is Gerrard's most recent signing, having arrived from Osijek earlier this week and his performance certainly suggested that he may prove to be a fantastic addition to the squad.

It was the 25-year-old who set up Rangers' second goal as his free-kick was converted by Goldson midway through the first-half, and a number of the Ibrox faithful were delighted with what they saw from the Croatian.

Barisic's set-piece delivery in particular came in for a lot of praise, and it is clear that many of the fans believe that he will prove to be a superb signing over the coming months.
