Arbroath - Rangers

Carlos Bocanegra and Maurice Edu both started as Alejandro Bedoya made the bench away against Arbroath.

Head Coach Ally McCoist took his opponents seriously, playing his big stars to get his team back on track in the Scottish FA Cup. The players responded well and put together a comprehensive win in front of nearly 6,000 at Gayfield Park.

Rangers got the scoring under way with David Healy putting away his chance in the 17th minute. Maurice Edu had an interchange with Nikica Jelavic before springing Healy into the box for the finish to be applied early on.

Craig Widderburn had the unfortunate stat of scoring an own goal just five minutes later. The goal would have been scored by Edu but Widderburn got the decisive touch and was credited with the own goal.

It was Jelavic who got the next Rangers goal, coming in the 59th minute. Edu was the provider, turning and sending a clever pass to Jelavic who made no mistake in front of net to add the third.

Healy was the final provider to Salim Kerkar who scored his first goal for the club. Sasa Papac's cross found Healy and Kerkar was on hand to rifle home the finish in the 77th minute. Bocanegra was the only Rangers player booked.

Mark Baxter and Stuart Malcom were both yellow carded for Arbroath. Up next for Rangers is a trip to St. Johnstone.

Notes:

Dominic Cervi did not make the bench as Celtic won 3-0 against Peterhead.
