It was an eventful night for VAR at Tynecastle - to put it lightly.

Rangers produced a dominant display as they ran out comfortable 3-0 winners over Robbie Neilson's side. The result moves Michael Beale's side 19 points clear of Hearts and they fully deserved to pick up the three points on their trip to Edinburgh.

Alfredo Morelos and Malik Tillman gave the visitors a two-goal lead at the break before Morelos added his second of the night in the second half. But it could've been more as Rangers had three goals, correctly, ruled out for offside and Morelos was also initially flagged for his second before VAR intervened.

John Beaton also rewarded Rangers a penalty in the second half before overturning his decision to book Ryan Kent for diving and Football Scotland has examined all the big VAR calls.

Morelos offside goal

The 26-year-old had the ball in the back of the net after 8 minutes.

Sakala squared the ball for Morelos to tap home but he was immediately flagged for offside.

VAR checked over the linesman's decision and it was the correct call as Morelos was clearly in an offside position.

Sakala offside goal

The Zambian international looked to have doubled Rangers advantage on the half hour.

It was a good finish from Sakala as he slid the ball past Clark but the linesman raised his flag.

It was a closer call than Morelos' offside but once again, the officials got it completely spot on as VAR confirmed.

Rangers penalty overturned

John Beaton pointed to the spot on 51 minutes when Ryan Kent went down under close attention from Alex Cochrane.

But VAR intervened and instructed Beaton to head to the pitch side monitor to review his decision.

It seemed to take an eternity for VAR official Kevin Clancy to ask Beaton to take a second look.

But the referee made a quick judgement and overturned his decision as he booked Kent for diving - which drew little complaint from the Rangers man.

Another Sakala offside goal

The Zambian will be cursing his lucky tonight.

After having a goal ruled out for offside in the first half, Sakala faced a similar punishment after firing home in the second half.

The linesman raised his flag once again and it was another correct call as Morelos had strayed offside in the build up.

Morelos goal awarded

It was quite an incredible night in terms of offside goals.

Rangers had three goals ruled out and it looked to be four when Morelos had an effort ruled out on 67 minutes.

Fashion Sakala was initially judged to be off but VAR intervened and awarded the goal to Morelos' delight.

Penalty appeal for Hearts

Hearts thought they might have had a penalty after the ball bounced off Goldson's hand but it wasn't given. It would have been harsh with the ball bouncing up off his knee initially and the right decision was made.
