Rangers win to keep Motherwell at Bay

6:41 am on 27 February 2012

The ailing Scottish football champions Rangers kept up their all but futile challenge to bitter rivals Celtic as they thrashed Inverness Caledonian Thistle 4-1.

Rangers at least gave their fans something to cheer about - after being docked 10 points for entering administration - in an entertaining performance which sees them trail Celtic by 20 points though they have a game in hand.

More pertinently it gives them a six point gap over third-placed Motherwell, who Celtic beat 1-nil on Sunday.
