Match Report

Although United took the field minus half-a-dozen regulars, they still managed to beat Rangers, the side we find the hardest to beat. Two ahead at the break, United appeared well on the way to a comfortable victory but a fighting Rangers outfit almost wiped out the deficit in the second had in which United slipped down a gear.

Paul Sturrock quickly seized upon an error by Dave McPherson to put us ahead. John Clark bulleted in a header from a Bannon corner for the second. Ally McCoist slipped one in early in the second half and from then on a Rangers' equaliser looked more likely than United increasing their lead.
