Rangers could not replicate their performance against Dortmund as they produced one of the close football scores of the weekend in the Scottish Premiership. Ross Graham scored for the hosts in the 29th minute before Joe Aribo equalized for the visitors in the 76th minute. The dropped points mean that they are now three points behind Celtic on the table.
Dundee United manager Tam Courts: “Really proud,” he said. “I spoke up the Rangers performance and result on Thursday night, it was great for them and for Scottish football. But domestic football is different, Scottish football is different. This is a difficult place to come because our fans are excellent, we have a lot of good players and we know how to execute a game plan. Once we got in front I think the only thing that was missing for us was actually getting the second one which would have made it really difficult for Rangers.”
Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst: “The first emotion is disappointment that we didn’t win. I think in the first half we were good; not dominating but good. Second half was only one way and once we scored the first goal you see the momentum was for us. We created enough chances to win this game and that is the only thing that we didn’t do well today. Twenty-nine chances we created, which is enough to win. We didn’t (take them) and that is why we lost points.”
