You will need a special unit that can see the infiltrated Rangers. One of the easiest ways when you are Space Marines is to create a "Scull Probe" from any of your listening posts. This isn't much good in combat, but can reveal the Rangers so that your other troops can kill them. It can attach to a squad, which protects it more from harm and makes it always travel with the squad. Research at your HQ can allow the probe to be infiltrated, along with your spies, and then you can kill the rangers without them even seeing you! You also can get the Librarian from your Sacred Artifact, who is much stronger and has a number of other abilities.

Get scouts Get probe Get scout infiltration Attach probe to scout squad

Also how the hell are rangers killing you? Rangers are good, agreed - but not more than one squad of them. But they were never meant to kill anything. Just ensure that you don't kill anything.

Here's an alternative option for you. Even though your units may not be able to 'see' or target the rangers, YOU should be able to tell where the fire's coming from, both by tracking the shot path AND by the 'mirage' blur of the infiltrated units. Research 'Frag Grenades' from the Chapel Barracks, and move a space marine squad equipped with them fairly close to the rangers, then use the frag grenade option and just choose to drop the grenade right in the middle of the 'blurs'. The other option that's differing from above is a whirlwind artillery tank. Same aiming strategy as above, just use the 'attack ground' option and target said squad's area of occupation. There's also a few other options, depending on which DoW you're playing, due to add-ons in Winter Assault, Dark Crusade and SoulStorm.

Still doesn't kill them though, do what Angel says or get a Librarian.
