Match Report

United's first defeat of 1984 put an end to any aspirations of a fourth League Cup final appearance in five years. Overall this was a disappointing performance by United, though in a first 45 minutes of few chances the most threatening were a header by Ralph Milne and a shot from Derek Stark. Sandwiched between those chances. Rangers' Sandy Clark opened the scoring with a fine volley on the turn.

Early in the second half United went further behind when Ian Redford surged forward to lob the ball over the advancing Hamish McAlpine. There was to be no recovery from that blow and the closest United came to reducing the gap came when Paul Sturrock was unlucky to see his shot strike the bar near the end.
