David Templeton enjoyed a happier trip to Galabank as Rangers recorded their 11th consecutive Irn-Bru Third Division victory on Tuesday afternoon.

The winger, who was carried off with ankle ligament damage when Rangers drew 0-0 in Annan in September, opened the scoring and helped round it off when his 25-yard strike was deflected home by defender Harry Monaghan.

Robbie Crawford had earlier put Rangers back in front after Ally Love brought Annan level before the break with an almost identical goal to the opener, with his cross sailing straight in.

Rangers did suffer another serious-looking injury though when Darren Cole was stretchered off on his first start of the season.

Rangers had made three changes before the game with skipper Lee McCulloch missing out with an ankle problem.

Cole came in at right-back, Francisco Sandaza started as a lone central striker and Andrew Little came in on the right flank.

Emilson Cribari, who recently returned from injury, was not risked on the artificial surface.
