I'm a Rangers Fan Get Me out of Here
Imagine the scene Rangers have just beaten a top European team at home and they come back to SPL business against a Dundee United team how have conceded 16 goals in their last four games. There has to be an easy win in there surely. Well this is Paul Le Guin's Rangers and they do not seem to be up for the SPL.
Some serious questions must now be asked of a manager who does not seemed to have grasped the basics of the SPL. Maybe Rangers should have a manager for the SPL, Billy Davies, and one for Europe, Paul Le Guen.
Only one change from the European sucess, Papac in for the error prone Svensson. No arguements from me here.
Again Rangers started well when Novo ran onto a Barry Ferguson free kick, but his chip was over the bar. That was it for the next half an hour. Again Novo it was through on goal but he could only shoot wide.
To be fair Ranger had all the ball but could not find a way through to goal. Then on 39 minutes United almost were given the lead when Papac's mis-kick of a Colin Samuel cross went just wide.
Ranger did have a chance with Adam's low drive from a Prso pass but no goal and than was the end of a poor first half.
Ranger took the lead in the second half when Adam shot home from a Novo cutback on 49 minutes.
Both teams went close, McCracken clearing off the line from an Adam chip.
United seemed to want to impress their new manager a kept banging away at Rangers. Craig Conway’s had a close effort following a mistake by Jeremy Clement.
Both Novo and Adam had good efforts but still no second goal.
By this time Buffel had been taken off and yes the inevitable happened, United equalised.
A Robson corner was picked up by Garry Kenneth at the back post and he headed home. Poor defending from a team deviod of creativity.
Then on 81 minutes a free-kick from Conway was headed in by Lee Mair.
That was it, no way back, and there was jeers around the ground at full time with le Guen looking lost in thought.
After the game Le Guen said:
“Results suggest the players are not good enough.”
Not so sure mate, wins in Europe do not come cheap and it is time he learned what it takes to win in the SPL.
