The home side went ahead early on through Graham Bayne, but Rangers struck back early in the second period when Dado Prso stuck.
Inverness took the lead after just three minutes with a fantastic strike from Bayne. The move came as Caley caught Rangers with a counter-attack, Juanjo fed Richie Hart and he crossed for Bayne - who volleyed home from eight yards to beat Stefan Klos.
Prso and Stephen Hughes then went close as Alex McLeish's men looked for a quick reply.
The visitors suffered a blow as the much sought after Jean-Alain Boumsong was forced off after picking up a knock.
Not long after the interval and Rangers levelled matters when Prso raced clear and beat Mark Brown at his near post after a lovely ball from Hughes.
Just moments later and The Gers almost went ahead when substitute Alex Rae headed at goal, but his effort just went over.
Rangers pushed forward for the remainder of the match, but without any success as Inverness held on for a valuable point.
