Rangers 2-0 Ross County
Following on from their European success Rangers were looking to get back to winning ways in the league at home to Ross County. Malky Mackay was aiming to make it two wins from two after last week’s controversial win over Kilmarnock.
Rangers were dominant in possession with Malik Tillman the sharpest of the Rangers front line.
James Sands was lucky not to see red in the first half after a second yellow card appeal was waved away.
The away side finally cracked under the pressure as John Lundstram gave Rangers the lead. After winning his appeal for a red card last week, the midfielder took a shot on 25 yards which deflected past Ross Laidlaw.
Antonio Colak made it 6 goals in 7 games just before half time. The Croatian front man fired into the top corner after some great work from Scott Wright.
Aberdeen 1-0 Livingston
Aberdeen were aiming to build on their strong start to the season, whilst David Martindale was looking for a response from his Livingston side following last week’s loss to Motherwell.
Livingston’s task got even harder after Jack Fitzwater gave away a penalty and was sent off for serious foul play on 40 minutes.
Macedonian hit man Bojan Miovski made no mistake to put the Dons ahead at the break.
Kilmarnock 0-1 Motherwell
Both sides were subject to controversial refereeing decisions last week, each with opposing outcomes.
It was Kevin van Veen, the man who scored a dubious penalty last week, that gave the away side the lead just before the 15 minute mark. The Dutch forward latched on to a Blair Spittal through pass and clipped the ball over the keeper.
St. Mirren 1-0 Hibernian
The away side were rocked with news that defender Rocky Bushiri would be out for over two months following an injury in training. St. Mirren meanwhile, went into this tie off the back of an emphatic win against Dundee United.
The buddies started in the same vein they ended last week, as Keanu Bacchus gave the home side an early lead after 6 minutes with his first goal for the club. Ryan Strain did some excellent work out wide to roll the ball across for his fellow Australian to finish.
