Rangers   7 - 2   Dunfermline

Kyle Lafferty scores a goal for Rangers against Dunfermline
Lafferty opened his account for the season with a hat-trick

Kyle Lafferty's hat-trick helped holders Rangers rout Dunfermline and reach the fourth round of the Co-operative Insurance Cup.

Strikes by Nikica Jelavic, Lafferty and Madjid Bougherra put Rangers in charge.

But Callum Woods headed one back for the Pars before the break and Joe Cardle further reduced the deficit.

But two more Lafferty strikes, one either side of Jelavic's overhead kick, and Steven Naismith's header ensured a comfortable victory for the hosts.

Rangers gave defender Andy Webster his first start of the season and Kyle Hutton made his full debut in midfield while Nick Phinn and Alex Burke returned to the starting line-up for First Division leaders Dunfermline.

Dunfermline made a bright start and were lively in possession but it was the home side who carved out the game's first chance.

Steven Davis, captaining Rangers in the absence of David Weir, played a one-two with Jelavic and tried to beat Chris Smith at his near post but the goalkeeper was equal to the shot.

However, Rangers soon moved into the lead as Kirk Broadfoot crossed for Jelavic to stab home in the 21st minute.

Two minutes later, Lafferty burst into the box and held off the challenge of the Dunfermline defence before finding the net for the first time this season.

Bougherra ventured forward to get on the end of Vladimir Weiss's low cross and the Algerian defender finished well past Smith.

Having played second fiddle for much of the match, the Pars ended the first half on a high as Woods met Willie Gibson's corner with a header that neither Rangers stand-in goalkeeper Neil Alexander or Broadfoot could block.

Gibson was also the architect of Dunfermline's second, outpacing Broadfoot to cross for Cardle, who headed powerfully into the far corner a minute into the second period.

But, almost instantly, Lafferty grabbed his second of the evening after collecting Naismith's pass and side-footing past Smith.

Jelavic acrobatically converted Andrew Little's cross to put Rangers further ahead just before the hour mark.

And Lafferty completed his first ever Rangers treble with an impressive finish from 10 yards in the 71st minute.

Naismith had scored as a substitute against Dundee United on Saturday and repeated the feet 13 minutes from the end when he got on the end of Broadfoot's curling cross and headed back across goal to beat Smith.
