Maurice Edu grabbed the winner as Rangers ground out a 1-0 victory against Hamilton to move 13 points clear at the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

The United States international netted the only goal of the game early on as the Ibrox side secured their fourth win in five meetings with Billy Reid's men this season.

The victory was hardly a convincing one but allowed the Scottish champions to move another step closer to retaining their title ahead of Celtic's clash with Hibernian on Sunday.
