Match Report

The final fixture of the season produced a frustrating afternoon for all concerned. Rangers won, but lost the title to Celtic, whilst we could claim to be more than a little hard done to by the eventual outcome.

Laudrup's opener came out-of-the-blue and against the run of play. There seemed little intent In the handball decision against Davie Sinclair which brought Rangers the penalty from which they increased their lead.

Our one crumb of comfort came from a glancing header by Lars Zetterlund as he directed home a perfect centre from Kjell Olofsson.
