• Dundee United go five matches unbeaten

An injury-time strike from the substitute Chris Burke’s gave Ross County a point in their Scottish Premiership game against Partick Thistle at Firhill.

The midfielder Sean Welsh scored with a penalty in the 24th minute and the hosts appeared set for their first Premiership win since the opening day of the season.

Scottish roundup: Nico Kranjcar on target as Rangers beat Partick

• Adam Rooney scores two goals for Aberdeen
• Chris Burke makes debut for Ross County

Rangers claimed their third win of the season after first-half goals from Niko Kranjcar and Andy Halliday sent them on their way to a 2-0 win at home to Partick Thistle.

Kranjcar played a one-two with fellow midfielder Jason Holt before making room to smack a right-foot drive high into the net. With the pressure removed, Rangers extended their lead five minutes before the end of the first period. Holt picked up a loose ball in midfield and fed Martyn Waghorn, who drove at the defence and set up Halliday to strike low past Ryan Scully. After the interval Alan Archibald’s men missed a gilt-edged opportunity to get back in the match through Chris Erskine. The win moves Mark Warburton’s team up to fifth place.
