Despite some good chances for the home side in the opening 15 minutes, it was the league champions who broke the deadlock, as David Templeton blasted the ball in from the edge of the area after 17 minutes.

Fraser Aird doubled the visitors' advantage five minutes before half time, tapping in the rebound from a free kick.

Kane Hemmings was brought on for the injured Anestis Argyriou early in the second half, and he added to the Rangers' tally within 10 minutes, firing the ball home from just inside the penalty area.

Templeton sealed his brace with a strike from distance, leaving Neil Parry rooted to the spot in the Queen's Park goal.

Lawrence Shankland bagged a late consolation for the hosts, but it was not enough to prevent Rangers comfortably taking the win.
