Match Report


Yet another superb spectacle for the fans, a near-capacity Tannadice one, kept everyonehappy. Certainly both Jim McLean and John Greig were delighted with tneir respective displays of their sides following tough midweek exertions in Europe. Peter McCloy saved the Ibrox side on numerous occasions but at the other end the woodwork kept out the 'Gers. In the end a fair result from a game which again showed that our Tannadice side are on the way back.
