Flanagan survived a handball claim in his box before Jones might have had a penalty after being clipped, but the winger soon set up the second in the 52nd minute.
The Northern Ireland international picked up a loose ball midway inside his own half and ran deep into home territory before feeding Aribo, who carried the ball into the box, steadied himself and fired into the far corner.
Jones soon ran at the full-back and fired a deflected effort that was tipped on to the bar and over, and the third goal came after the resulting corner was half-cleared towards Kamara on the edge of the box. The midfielder headed down to Morelos, who helped the bouncing ball on to the unmarked Katic and the Croatian supplied an excellent finish.
Rangers soon threatened to implode, though. They lost possession deep inside their half, Ryan Jack was beaten on the byline and Frank Onyeka eventually forced home the cutback on the turn in the 58th minute.

The Danes pulled another goal back five minutes later after working the ball from wide left to Kaba 20 yards out and the Guinea international fired into the bottom corner.
The hosts had their tails up and Rangers took time to settle but, once they had, they quickly regained a two-goal cushion.
Tavernier’s pass got Morelos inside the full-back and Arfield trapped his cutback before passing the ball past a defender and the keeper into the net.
Jack, Flanagan, Aribo and Morelos were booked along with two opponents in a fractious finale but McGregor did not have much to do despite the home side piling men forward.
Rangers have no choice but to move on from Ryan Kent, according to manager Steven Gerrard.
The Glasgow side were desperate to get the Liverpool winger back following an impressive loan stint last season.
Jurgen Klopp has insisted that Kent would only be leaving the club on a permanent basis this summer – with the finances involved beyond Rangers’ reach.
“I haven’t asked that question (to the board) but I think the answer would probably be yes,” said Gerrard as he admitted the figures required to sign Kent would be too rich for his side.
“Jurgen has come out and given the answer that will come out of my mouth anyway. It has been addressed and we move on.
“The end of it? Where we are right now, yes. We respect Liverpool’s stance and we thank them very much for allowing us to work with Ryan for a year.
“We have obviously got a Liverpool player at the moment in Sheyi Ojo who has started very well. I had a good conversation on the phone with Jurgen a few days ago and we totally respect Liverpool’s position on it.

“It is possible we still might get one more player in, but there is no rush. The squad is in a decent place so we will go with what we have at the moment.
“If something was to come up that makes us better and we think it will make us better then we will take it to the board and the answer will be with them.”
Reports on Thursday claimed striker Alfredo Morelos had decided against a move to Hebei Fortune despite the Chinese Super League outfit having been prepared to meet Rangers’ £15million valuation.

It was claimed a £30million, three-year package had been put on the table before the Colombian turned it down.
But Gerrard responded to the story by saying: “I’m unaware of it. There have been no bids. It is as you were from the last time. I’m not sure whether he is going to do the interview for you, though.”
Steven Gerrard has confirmed Alfredo Morelos may leave Rangers this summer – but only if a big-money deal is agreed early in the transfer window.
Morelos has been linked with an Ibrox exit over the past few months, with Chinese Super League clubs keen on the Colombia forward.
Brendan Rodgers, the former Celtic manager, is also said to be keen on signing Morelos for Leicester, with a switch to the Premier League rumoured since last season.
Rangers have already started preparing for the 23-year-old’s potential departure, with reports claiming Gerrard is eyeing up a swoop for Leeds star Kemar Roofe to replace Morelos.
And the Rangers boss provided an update on his star striker on Sunday, after Morelos missed a 5-0 friendly defeat of Oxford United due to injury.
“I can’t control the speculation,” Gerrard admitted, “but as a club we haven’t got a decision to make because a bid hasn’t come of any sort.
“Does anyone want Alfredo Morelos? I don’t know, I can’t answer that question, but if they do they best bring a really, really big offer.

“It won’t happen late. A million per cent it won’t happen late, that’s for sure.
“So if someone wants to spend a lot of money on a centre-forward and they want my centre-forward, they will have to come early.
“If he did end up going he would be impossible to replace with days or weeks to go in the window. We don’t want to sell him, but you know and I know that every player has a price.
“I’m not going to sit here and say he’s not going out the door because if a bid lands that the board like and want to accept, it’s a completely different conversation. But that hasn’t happened. There hasn’t been one single bid.
“If teams are planning on waiting until days or the last week of the window, they are wasting their time.”
Gerrard may not be aware of any interest in Morelos, though the reports of a summer move certainly suggest the striker is relatively in demand.
Leicester’s interest in him appears to have died down since they signed Ayoze Perez from Newcastle, but a move to the Premier League could still be on the cards.
And talkSPORT’s very own Ray Parlour has named the one team who could benefit from Morelos’ talents – if they can afford to prise him away from Ibrox.
“Morelos looks like he could be off,” said the Arsenal legend. “Could he come into the Premier League? Somewhere like Crystal Palace?
“He’s a good goalscorer.”
Parlour was discussing Morelos on Monday’s Sports Breakfast, and host Alan Brazil had his say on Rangers’ star striker.
Big Al said: “He’s a screwball! He can play, but he’s a screwball. You can wind him up like a clock, and he’s got to curb that.”
When quizzed about his future, Morelos told the Scottish Herald: “There is a lot of speculation about my possible departure, but there is nothing concrete yet.
“I know there are many interested clubs asking and as soon as there is something official I will be announcing it.

Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos has accepted a fine from the Scottish Premiership club for receiving his fifth red card of the season during Sunday’s Old Firm derby defeat by Celtic.
Morelos, the Colombia forward, was dismissed for an off-the-ball elbow on Hoops skipper Scott Brown, half-an-hour into the clash at Celtic Park.
He will now miss four matches through suspension – two for this sending off plus an additional two for his previous indiscretions – meaning the 22-year-old will not be available for more than half Rangers’ seven remaining league matches this season.
And Steven Gerrard, the Rangers manager, confirmed Morelos has been fined by the club – a punishment the striker has accepted.
“He has shown remorse and accepted the punishment I have given him,” Gerrard said.

“I have gone above and beyond for Alfredo. I have continued to protect him, support him and love him as a player and the person he is but I have to draw the line under it now and he will be punished internally.
“I will recommend to the board that he is fined a week’s wages and will also recommend that that fine should go to the supporters who came today because they are the ones who will suffer from his lack of discipline, also his team-mates as well.
“The money is no use to his team-mates it is more use to the supporters, that’s what I will recommend and we will see what happens from there.”
And when James Forrest struck the decisive winner late on, it was the 33-year-old who was again on the deck after triggering a reaction from Ryan Kent.
It may be deemed as the ‘ugly side’ of football, but gamesmanship and mind games are as much a part of fierce derbies as goals and assists.
And when it comes to winding the opposition up, there are few better in the world than the midfielder.
Technically speaking, Brown was assured on the pitch when the ball was in play as well.
Celtic had 59 per cent possession throughout the game, with Brown dictating play for the hosts from his traditional deep-lying role.
It may not be the most glamorous role, but the midfielder is a master of disrupting the opposition – using their emotion against them as just for good measure he had a part in Andy Halliday receiving his marching orders, the Rangers midfielder having taken exception to Brown celebrating in front of the away fans.
Rangers boss Steven Gerrard even acknowledged his side had been duped, citing their ill-discipline as the cause for their downfall at Celtic Park.
