Match Report

A fighting second half performance from United was not enough to stop Rangers from maintaining their one hundred per cent record in this season’s Scottish premierleague. A Capucho goal down at the interval, Ian McCall’s side attacked this afternoon’s visitors with conviction and, as the second half wore on, it looked increasingly a possibility that the Tangerines might level the match.

The introduction of Billy Dodds ten minutes from time made the difference when he headed in an equaliser within a minute of coming on. The question at that stage was whether United could hold on or even go on to win the match. Unfortunately Alex McLeish’s side went in front again within five minutes of Dodds’s equaliser through midweek Ibrox hero Shota Arveladze and, with seconds remaining, the margin of defeat was increased to two goals when Arteta netted with a penalty.
