Managerless Rangers win at Hearts

Rangers striker Kenny Miller

Rangers striker Kenny Miller marked his return from first-team exile with two goals to help sweep his side to victory over Hearts.

A deflected first-half shot and a header after the break saw the visitors come from behind to take the lead.

Miller also created the third for Josh Windass, who lashed a low shot into the net.

Former Rangers striker Kyle Lafferty had put the home side in front with an excellent first-half free-kick.

Caretaker manager Graeme Murty chose to recall Miller and make him captain, after the player had been dropped by former manager Pedro Caixinha following last month's Old Firm defeat.

Murty was taking charge of his first game in charge in his second spell as the caretaker manager, while the Ibrox board begin the process of appointing a successor to Caixinha.
