Rangers locked horns with Dundee United at the Tannadice Park earlier today as they hoped to grab maximum points on the road in the Scottish Premiership. The Glaswegian giants made a solid start to the game but were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.

The visitors made a quick start to the second 45 minutes and managed to get their noses ahead in the 54th minute courtesy of Fashion Sakala’s excellent goal. Malik Tillman doubled Rangers’ advantage just three minutes later when he got his name on the scoresheet with a composed finish. The contest ended with the Glaswegian outfit earning an impressive 2-0 victory away from home.
