ALLY McCOIST cast a careful eye over a strong Rangers side as they cruised to a 4-0 win over Kilmarnock this afternoon.

Goals from David Healy and John Fleck combined with two own goals from the visitors made it a comfortable afternoon for a reserve side featuring some serious first team contenders.

Lee McCulloch and Matt McKay both featured for an hour while Healy played the first 45 minutes and Fleck, Ross Perry and Neil Alexander all completed a full match.

There was also a 90 minute outing for on-trial Argentinian Matias Abelairas who partnered McCulloch at the heart of midfield.

McKay, playing wide on the left of a four man midfield set up the first real chance of the match for Healy after 18 minutes but the visiting keeper did well to block.

The Ulsterman wasn't to be denied for too long though when he met another McKay delivery to rifle home from the edge of the box after 20 minutes.

Ten minutes later the home side doubled their advantage when neat work from Salim Kerkar on the left led to Mohamadou Sissoko turning the ball in to his own net.

And with five minutes of the half remaining Fleck made it three for the Light Blues when he was quickest to the ball to round the keeper and roll home from an angle.

Half time signalled the end of involvement for Healy with Rhys McCabe taking his place as the only change of the interval.

Within 10 minutes of the action resuming the Light Blues had wrapped things up with another own goal created by Kerkar, this time Leon Panikvar was the man turning the ball home.

That prompted further changes for the home side with McKay and McCulloch withdrawn from midfield in favour of Andy Mitchell and Chris Hegarty.

Kerkar was then replaced late on by under-19 striker Jack Werndly, but the home side couldn't add to their scoring.

RANGERS: Alexander; McMillan, Perry, Cole, Kerkar (Werndly 75); Bendiksen, McCulloch (Mitchell 60), Abelairas, McKay (Hegarty 60); Healy (McCabe 46), Fleck.

Good to see Healy and Fleck score.
