Rangers scored a late winner to keep the pressure on Celtic as they produced one of the narrow football scores of the weekend in the Scottish Premiership. The game was delayed and then stopped soon after it began as the staff had to clean tennis balls thrown by the fans to protest. Christie Eliott gave the hosts the lead in the sixth minute before Aaron Ramsey equalized with his first goal for the club. Just when it looked like both teams would share the points, Connor Goldson scored the winner in the 86th minute. Rangers trail league leaders Celtic by three points with a few months left.
Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst: “It’s a big relief to go away with the three points. It was a tough game, we didn’t start well. We had more chances in the second half and sometimes you have to be a little bit lucky, which we were when the ball dropped for Connor. Today could have cost us two big points but we kept the belief and worked hard to win the game in difficult circumstances. The pitch wasn’t great but you have to overcome these situations, play on and make sure you come off the pitch as winners”
Dundee boss Mark McGhee: “We put an awful lot of effort into the early part of the game, I thought we played pretty well and our strategy nullified Rangers. We didn’t let them play well. In the second half, they pile on the subs and we don’t have the strength and depth to maintain that level of performance. I don’t think we could have given an ounce more than we gave, in that last 20 minutes there was an inevitability about it that we can do nothing about.”
