Rangers secure second place
Rangers secured second place in the Scottish Premier League in style with a commanding 5-0 win over Dundee United.

First-half goals from Paul McGowan and Steven Thompson helped St Mirren to a 2-0 victory over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

Kilmarnock were handed a lifeline 10 minutes into the second half when Darren McGregor was adjudged to have handled Dean Shiels' shot inside the area. Shiels stepped up to take the resulting kick but was denied by Craig Samson.
