Rangers returned to the top of the Bank of Scotland Scottish Premier League on Saturday with a 3-0 win over Livingston.
Former 'Gers favourite Richard Gough was always likely to find it tough taking his basement side to Ibrox and so it proved with a 14th-minute goal
from Dado Prso putting the hosts in control. Fernando Ricksen and Nacho Novo added to the score after the break to move Alex McLeish's men above
Celtic on goal difference ahead of the champions' visit to Kilmarnock on Sunday.
With third-placed Hibernian's trip to Motherwell postponed, chasing pair Hearts and Aberdeen each aimed to close the gap with a win at Tynecastle. And
it was John Robertson's men who took all three points courtesy of a Dennis Wyness penalty on 63 minutes. Hearts leapfrog the Dons and now lie five
points behind their city rivals.
At the other end of the table, Dundee United and Dundee shared four goals in an entertaining City of Discovery clash. Stuart Duff put Ian McCall's
outfit in front early on but Tam McManus marked his first Tayside derby with an equaliser on 71 minutes. Jim McIntyre restored the one-goal advantage
eight minutes later but Steve Lovell secured a share of the spoils five from time.
A goal in each half was enough for Inverness Caledonian Thistle player-manager Craig Brewster to secure a win over former club Dunfermline. Barry
Wilson broke the deadlock on 35 minutes before Brewster himself made sure of the points.
