Scottish Championship Roundup: Rangers rout heats Hearts pressure at the top

Sports Mole rounds up Saturday afternoon's Scottish Championship action as Rangers hammer Raith Rovers 4-0 to pile more pressure on Hearts at the top.

Rangers put the pressure on Hearts at the top of the Scottish Championship after an impressive 4-0 win against Raith Rovers this afternoon.

Rangers hammered Raith Rovers 4-0 to record their fourth win on the bounce at Stark's Park. The hosts went ahead after Nicky Clark opened the scoring, before Ian Black doubled the lead on 38 minutes. Nicky Law then extended the home side's lead a minute later before Lee McCulloch converted a penalty to round off the scoring after 73 minutes.

Jordan White took all the plaudits as Livingston thrashed Alloa Athletic 4-0 at the Almondvale Stadium. White scored a hat-trick to convincingly brush the visitors aside after Callum Fordyce opened the scoring on 27 minutes.

Cowdenbeath were the only side in the Championship not to win a match ahead of the day's fixtures, but they looked like changing that stat on 56 minutes. Sean Higgins and Jon Robertson put the visitors ahead after Jordan Forster's opening goal for Hibs, although the hosts turned the game on its head with 12 minutes to go through Dominique Malonga's penalty and Jason Cummings's final-minute winner.

Queen of the South's Gavin Reilly put the away side ahead on the 70th minute but Chris Higgins's own goal with seven minutes remaining gifted Falkirk a share of the spoils.

Dumbarton held Hearts to a draw as the visitors remain top of the Scottish Championship after the 0-0 stalemate.
