The visitors restored their advantage just before the half-time interval when Connor Goldson headed home Tavernier’s free kick, and despite Rangers’ best efforts in the second half, it proved to be enough to seal all through points at Tannadice Park.

Victory sees Rangers, who remain unbeaten in the league, move 15 points clear of Hibernian in second place, and 16 ahead of third-placed Celtic, who have three games in hand and face Kilmarnock later on Sunday afternoon.
