First-half flurry earns Rangers win over leaders Hearts
Steven Gerrard's side won 3-1 to cut the gap to the Jam Tarts to five points.
Rangers scored three times in the first half to defeat league leaders Hearts.
Efforts from Ryan Kent, Alfredo Morelos and Scott Arfield before the interval made the difference as Steven Gerrard's side cut the deficit to the table toppers to five points.
Michael Smith saw red after the interval but the Jam Tarts still managed to pull one back through Jimmy Dunne.
The opener, after just two minutes, came in bizarre fashion. The visitors surged out of the box from a wide free-kick in a bid to play Rangers offside but Morelos beat the trap. The Colombian found himself clean through on goal and teed up Kent to tap in.
In a frenetic opening to the match, Hearts had golden opportunities to immediately level but were denied by two point-blank Allan McGregor saves, first from Steven Naismith and then from Uche Ikpeazu.
The Light Blues would double their lead within 13 minutes. Daniel Candeias robbed Demetri Mitchell on the right and crossed for Morelos to impressively back heel in from close range.
It was three just after the half-hour mark. James Tavernier found Morelos with a looping back post cross, the attacker's header was parried away but not to safety and Scott Arfield arrived to tap in.
After the interval, Hearts were reduced to ten men when Smith blocked Jon Flanagan's overlapping run to receive his second booking.
Defender Dunne pulled one back as the away side rallied late on despite being a man down.
