Rangers get first win of 2010

Rangers' Steven Davis and Hamilton's James McArthur

Rangers got their first win of 2010 with a hard fought 1-0 victory over Hamilton at New Douglas Park.

The best chance at goal in the first half was from Hamilton's Simon Mensing, but his close-range shot was blocked by Danny Wilson.

Hamilton goalie Tomas Cerny stopped a header by Kyle Lafferty, only for Rangers to break through Hamilton's defence late on.

Cerny blocked a shot by John Fleck, but Nacho Novo scored off the rebound.
