A brace from Andy Little and a Lee McCulloch goal give Rangers a 3-1 win over East Stirling in the Scottish Third Division.

Rangers had to come from behind to secure a 3-1 win over East Stirlingshire at Ibrox in the Scottish Third Division this lunchtime.

The hosts made a bright start to the match, with David Templeton and Andy Little both having early chances in front of goal.

However, it was East Stirling who took the lead, with Andy Stirling firing the ball in from the edge of the box just before half time, ensuring that the visitors led at the break.

Rangers levelled shortly after the restart, when Anestis Argyriou picked out Little inside the box, giving the striker a simple tap-in.

Lee McCulloch put the home side in front in the 62nd minute following a strong spell from Rangers, before Little added his second and Rangers' third one minute later.

The win leaves Rangers 23 points clear at the top of the table.
