THE latest round of Premiership fixtures resulted in a change at the top of the standings as Rangers head into the international break with a two-point lead over champions Celtic.

Neil Lennon's side suffered a shock 2-0 defeat at the Tony Macaroni Arena and Rangers took full advantage with a 5-0 home win over Hamilton to move top of the Premiership for the the first time this season while elsewhere, Kilmarnock heaped further misery on Hearts and Aberdeen had two players sent off as they were held to a draw by Paul Heckingbottom's Hibernian at Pittodrie.

The latest results mean that we've updated our Manager Power Rankings once again, and there have been a few notable developments ahead of the international break. For those that aren't sure about how it all works, you can read all about it here.

The biggest change has arrived at the top where, for the first time this season, Lennon has been knocked off of top spot after Livingston's 2-0 win over Celtic. The champions were expected to win so Lennon was docked three points, while opposite number Gary Holt was awarded the same number for the surprise victory.

Lennon has been replaced at the top by Steven Gerrard, who picked up two points for his side's 5-0 dismantling of Accies; the Englishman gained one point for the win, and another bonus point for winning by three or more goals. There are now two points seperating Gerrard (+8) in first and Lennon (+6) in second.

Holt is now just a single point behind Lennon, tied with Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson after the Steelmen's fine start to the league campaign continued with a 2-0 win over St Mirren at Fir Park. Robinson was awarded a point for the win while Jim Goodwin - who hasn't overseen a victory since his side beat Aberdeen back in August - was docked one, dropping to ninth place in our table.

Angelo Alessio continued Kilmarnock's resugence with a 1-0 win at Tynecastle and picked up three points in our Power Rankings as a result, moving onto 0 for the first time since the opening round of fixtures. Craig Levein, meanwhile, lost three points and is now propping up the rest with an overall tally of -8 for the season.

Heckingbottom gained a point for his side's 1-1 draw with Aberdeen, putting some distance between himself and Levein at the bottom of the standings, and Derek McInnes lost one; moving below Alessio and is now just a single point ahead of Goodwin.

St Johnstone's Tommy Wright kept pace with Heckingbottom after securing a 2-2 draw in Dingwall and is in joint-tenth with the Hibs boss. Ross County's co-managers Stuart Kettlewell and Steven Ferguson, on the other hand, lost a point as their side were expected to win and drop to fifth in our Manager Power Rankings.
