Facing a Rangers side suffering from five successive League defeats and under the new management of Jock Wallace, United failed to reproduce the dazzling football that had led to the comprehensive defeat of St Johnstone the previous week.
The nearest United came to scoring were efforts from Tom Coyne, Ralph Milne and, towards the end, a volley from Eamonn Bannon, which just dipped over the bar.
Best chance of the match fell to Rangers when Ally McCoist hit the post and Sandy Clark blasted the rebound high over the bar. Hamish McAlpine also pulled off a fine save from substitute Bobby Russell late on in the game. There was one booking, skipper Paul Hegarty for a foul on Dave Mitchell in the 76th minute.
