Rangers scored in both halves to secure a 2-0 win over Partick Thistle at Ibrox Stadium

Hyndman was in the starting lineup for the Light Blues and once again played well in the midfield.

Kenny Miller opened the scoring for the host in the 39th minute as headed in his shot off a pass from teammate James Tavernier.

Rangers had several chances to further their lead with efforts from Myles Beerman, Jon Toral and Danny Wilson, Martyn Waghorn and Hyndman, but they were well saved by Partick goalkeeper Tomas Cerny.
