Jelavic puts Rangers 12 points clear at top of SPL

Nikica Jelavic scored a hat trick Saturday to give Rangers a 3-1 win over Dundee United and a 12-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premier League.
With second-place Motherwell not in action until it plays Celtic on Sunday, Jelavic scored a 19th-minute header from Matt McKay's cross and converted a 63rd-minute penalty. Jon Daly got a goal back for the Terrors before Jelavic struck his third late on for the defending champions.
Celtic is another three points behind Motherwell before visiting Fir Park.
Also Saturday, Graeme Shinnie scored a hat trick to give Inverness a 6-2 win at Kilmarnock. But Inverness stayed in last place because Dunfermline won 1-0 at Hibernian. Hearts and St. Mirren drew 0-0 in the other match.
