    Scottish Premier League leaders Rangers moved 10 points clear of Celtic after a 2-0 away win at St Mirren.

    Steven Davis give the visitors an early lead but had to wait until four minutes from time to be sure of the three points when Nacho Novo clinched the victory.

    "We started the game very well. The first 25 minutes was by far the best part of the game for ourselves. We had some decent possession of the ball and some opportunities to score. The St Mirren goalkeeper made some good saves, said Gers boss Walter Smith.

    "After that, we became a little bit untidy in terms of our possession but, give credit to St Mirren, they worked us very hard.

    "They put a lot into the game, they played the ball forward early and got up after it and showed a lot of energy. Consequently, the game became a little bit scrappy.

    "In the end, Nacho Novo's goal took the pressure off us.

    "We've got to continue to try and achieve a level of consistency that will keep us on top of the league, that's the main thing.

    "There's a lot of football to be played yet this season."
