Match Report

United's unbeaten run was extended to fifteen matches as Rangers offered their first home league defeat for over a year. There was some early pressure from Rangers, but United shocked the Ibrox legions with a classic goal on the counter attack. Maurice Malpas found Kjell Olofsson on the left and his precision cross was swept home by Winters.

Immediately after the break Robbie Winters returned the compliment and Kjell Olofsson stabbed the ball past Goram to enable to cruise to a comfortable victory, not something many teams can claim to do at Ibrox!
