Rangers thrash Hearts to move Five Points Clear in Title Race

Rangers showed their title intent with a 5-0 win against Hearts to move five points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership. 

The Ibrox side were in no mood to let Hearts show the form that had seen them win their previous six league matches as Mohammed Diomande fired in the opener inside two minutes.

Oscar Cortes made it 2-0 with his first goal since joining Rangers in January and Cyriel Dessers headed in a third before half-time.

Steven Naimsith's side looked shell-shocked as Dessers added another just after half-time with Fabio Silva coming off the bench to wrap up an impressive performance by Philippe Clement's side.

Celtic can cut Rangers' lead back to two points with a win at Motherwell on Sunday, while Hearts remain third.
