The home side were awarded a corner in the opening five minutes, which Rangers failed to deal with, and the ball deflected into the net off Anestis Argyriou.

Berwick's lead was short-lived, as the visitors won a penalty in the ninth minute after Dean Shiels was fouled in the area, before taking the spot kick to level the scores.

The equaliser allowed the league leaders to take control of the game, with Lee Wallace and Andy Little both looking to create chances.

Rangers took the lead just before half time, with Wallace crossing the ball to Little, who volleyed it into the net from close range.

Sebastien Faure came on in the second half following an injury to Ross Perry, and netted his first goal for Rangers to give the visitors a two-goal lead.

The win extends Rangers' lead at the top of the table to 25 points.
