After the Dingwall side defeated Celtic last weekend there was an assurance among Rangers’ players they would not achieve an Old Firm double, and so it transpired.

Jim Steele: “I've never felt so relaxed watching Rangers for many years but this team is just relentless and reaping the rewards.”

While delighted, fans couldn’t decide who was most effective for the visitors.

Barry Coull: “Good one to get out of the way, well done all especially Steve Davis outstanding today.”

@stumain22: “Itten done an amazing job with the assist for Defoe. Solid game and getting to rotate a few players in the process. Davis also done well with those amazing through balls!”

@foe_no: “Incredible workrate from Tavernier. MoM again. Player of The Year so far.”

Davie Brown: “Brilliant second half and glad to see Defoe get his goal on his 800th appearance. Amazing squad depth we've got this season.”

Stacey Morrow: “Brilliant performance thought Ryan Kent was back to himself today and Tav is like a new player he is actually a captain now and Roofe is coming through. I still say Morelos doesn’t seem interested and would play Defoe from the start he has more about him and is scoring goals and maybe leave Morelos for a few games.”

Match analysis: Ross County 0 Rangers 4

Bill Macfarlane: “Don’t understand fans slating Morelos, he was involved in three goals today. His job as the middle man of a front three is to drop and link play, creating space for teammates, this season has all been about the squad not individuals, have a look back at all the goals we have scored and count how many Alfie has had a part in. Firmino does same job for Liverpool.”

Jonny Limberis: “Pleased with the performance today. Just hoping Morelos can get a goal soon. We are a hard team to beat!”

And of course, a little ribbing of their rivals too.

@rangers_rab: “Beating Ross County isn’t for everyone.”
