Match Report


No blame could be laid on our Ibrox bogey for this latest defeat. The simple fact of the matter is that Rangers were the superior side on the night. Having said that the opening exchanges consisted of a tight midfield battle with Billy Thomson making a fine save from Davie Cooper. Rangers got the vital opening goal when Ted McMinn did well to get in his cross from the left and Ally McCoist did even better to flick the ball home at the near post. After surviving a spell of pressure, we began to make some impact just before the interval.

This continued on the re-start but our hopes were ruined when Cooper hoisted the ball forward for Ted McMinn to charge in on goal from the left to beat Billy Thomson. The game looked to be beyond our reach as the minutes ticked away, but Iain Ferguson threw us a possible late life-line and Iain smashed the ball past Woods from around the penalty spot. It was, however, too little, too late, and in truth anything more would have been far from deserved.
