Rangers' Championship season continued with a two-two draw against Morton at Ibrox on Saturday.

An early Kenny Miller goal, inside two-minutes, had Rangers off to a perfect start when he headed in a James Tavernier freekick that many would have expected to see them go on and complete a comfortable win? That wasn't the case though with Morton battling throughout.

Tavernier scored the latest goal of his season just past the half hour mark but this own goal isn't one he would have wanted (obviously) to see Morton level at half time, this came at the end of one of the numerous counter-attacks they sprung.

When Stefan McCluskey curled Morton ahead, profiting from a long ball from 'keeper Grant Adam that Rob Kiernan didn't deal with, in the final 10-minutes they looked set to stun Rangers but Lee Wallace set up Martyn Waghorn instantly to make it two-all a couple of minutes later.

Rangers paid tribute to former player Arnold Peralta, tragically shot dead in Honduras on Friday, ahead of the game with all observing this with great respect.

Having taken the lead Miller could have added his second but he finished straight at Morton 'keeper Grant Adam with another Kiernan header going over before Morton levelled.

Counter-attacks were the best source of a Morton goal with Bobby Barr getting beyond Tavernier in the second half too but he finished wide of Wes Foderingham's goal but the Gers 'keeper did have to save from Denny Johnstone on another occasion.

Waghorn turned provider for Nicky Clark but he wasn't able to get his head to it with Morton 'keeper Adam also denying Waghorn then the visitors stunned Rangers going ahead but the aforementioned Waghorn then earned a point instantly and that's how it ended.
