Nottingham Forest climbed to fourth in the Sky Bet Championship using a thumping 4-0 triumph over QPR.
Tobias Figueiredo scored his first goal for the club having a header prior to Lewis Grabban, Joao Carvalho and Alfa Semedo hit late on to maintain their promotion bidding on track.
Rangers are currently six matches without a win, his start to the season having vanished in recent weeks and lost Lee Wallace in the second half.
Alarmingly, they have conceded at least two targets in their last 10 matches, equalling a chain set by the club once earlier, in 1951.
They are also still the only team from the English Football League not to handle a blank sheet this season, and it was easy to see why.
When Portuguese guardian Figueiredo outmuscled Todd Kane at the far post to direct a header beyond Joe Lumley out of the corner of Joe Lolley after 15 minutes Forest proved ahead.
About the half-hour Rangers were grateful to visit Sammy Ameobi’s movie land directly and failed to clean another corner.
Until Ilias Chair forced a couple saves from Brice Samba soon the hosts had given little danger in the first half.
Rangers director Mark Warburton was facing the team that sacked him in 2017 for the first time, later last-man Wallace was ignored for tugging Lolley to the floor along with his odds of revenge appeared bleaker.
Yet Rangers should have been flat on the hour following Josh Scowen fulfilled with Kane’s cross eight yards out in front of goal, only.
Figueiredo practically helped himself for a second simply to see his header cleared off the line by Scowen, but at the minute the guide dropped, arriving at the far post to complete the cross of Ameobi.
Rangers immediately collapsed and Carvalho skipped around two or three non-existent challenges for its third before fellow substitute Semedo tapped in a stoppage-time fourth.
