Kris Boyd Slams One Rangers Star Despite 3-0 Win V St Johnstone

Rangers claimed a crucial victory against St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday, securing a 3-0 win that propelled them to the top of the table with a two-point lead over rivals Celtic. The match saw an unexpected half-time substitution as winger Scott Wright was replaced by Dujon Sterling.

Sky Sports pundit Kris Boyd provided his analysis on the substitution, stating, “I don’t think it was Scott Wright’s best 45 minutes, but it’s another opportunity for somebody else to come in. There’s one thing about Clement, he doesn’t mind a half-time substitution.”

Philippe Clement, Rangers’ manager, did not hesitate to make the tactical change, and the decision paid off as Sterling’s inclusion contributed to the team’s impressive second-half performance.

The first half proved challenging for Wright, with several of his teammates also struggling on the road, despite Clement fielding a strong starting XI. However, recent recruit Mohammed Diomande broke the deadlock with a spectacular long-range strike in the 37th minute.

Clement faced some tense moments as St Johnstone pressed, but the manager expressed satisfaction with the final outcome. James Tavernier sealed the win with two late penalty goals, securing the three points for Rangers.

The victory marked a significant moment for Rangers in their pursuit of Celtic. The two-point lead over Brendan Rodgers’s side has lifted the spirits of the fans, who have eagerly awaited their team’s ascent to the top of the table.
