But the Rangers striker, who now sits seven short of the Swede’s record, was denied his hat-trick when he was replaced just two minutes before the Scottish champions were handed a penalty converted instead by Kenny Miller.

Pedro Moutinho had pulled a goal back for the SPL bottom side but Walter Smith’s men held on for the win which allowed them to return to the top of the table ahead of Celtic’s clash with Aberdeen later in the day.

Kyle Lafferty could then have put the result beyond all doubt only for his point-blank header to be blocked by home keeper Robert Olejnik but Rangers held on for the points anyway.
