Boyd double sends Rangers top in Scotland
GLASGOW, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Two goals from striker Kris Boyd handed Rangers a 2-0 home win over Hearts in the Scottish Premier League on Saturday.
Boyd hammered home a penalty in the opening minute of the second half after Croatian front man Dado Prso had been brought down by Robbie Neilson, who earned a second yellow card in stoppage time as Hearts finished with 10 men.
Four minutes later Boyd headed high into the net from a Lee Martin cross. Prso crashed a shot against the crossbar as Rangers came close to a third goal.
'I am happy with all of the game,' Rangers manager Paul Le Guen told BBC Radio Scotland.
'We got better and better and it was important for our confidence. He (Kris) did well and I am sure he can improve. But he did well.'
Rangers top the standings with eight points from four games. Champions Celtic play at Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Sunday and have six points from three matches.
Dunfermline's Mark Burchill smacked a first-half penalty against the post as his side drew 0-0 with Dundee United. Hibernian beat Motherwell 3-0, Falkirk lost 2-1 at home to Kilmarnock and St Mirren drew 1-1 with Aberdeen.
