DISAPPOINTED St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright admitted his side were second best to rampant Rangers last night.
The Ibrox side cruised to a 4-1 triumph at McDiarmid Park after romping to a three-goal advantage at the interval.
A penalty-kick from James Tavernier keicked off the landslide and Josh Windass, with his 10th goal of the season, and Sean Goss added to the tally to floor sad Saints.
Alfredo Morelos headed in a fourth before Jason Kerr’s late consolation effort.
A frustrated Wright admitted: “We are back to the way we have been at home this season.
“The game was dead at half-time after we gave away soft goals.
“That has been our Achilles Heel all season. We were bullied by Rangers and the last two games against them that wasn’t the case.”
The Perth outfit are now just six points above second bottom Partick Thistle with just one win in their last 10 league games which came against Ross County in their previous outing.
