Recommended Posts

Weather permitting, Rangers travel to the North East on Sunday, Peterhead being the most eastwardly town in Scotland. Peterhead currently sit third in the table, a full twenty points behinds Rangers. Peterhead do, however, have a decent home league  record, having lost only once at home so far this season.


The previous meeting between the two sides at Balmoor, back in August of last year, ended in a 2-2 draw.




Ally McCoist has revealed that Lee McCulloch will again be unavailable, having been given a full week's rest to recover from bruising on his ankle. in other injury news, Kevin Kyle is still missing with an annoying ankle problem which still requires treatment.and Darren Cole will require an operation having damaged his ankle at Annan on January 2nd.

In a match that went ahead thanks to Peterhead's foresight in protecting the pitch using covers borrowed from Ross County, a 30th minute goal from Francisco Santaza was enough go secure Rangers' seventh consecutive away win

I somehow managed to miss the start of the match so don't know whether there was a minutes silence, but I can tell you that the Rangers players wore black armbands and that Rangers fans held banners proclaiming: "Robert Learmonth: Legend" in honour of the 57 year old Rangers fan who so tragically died last week having been taken ill at the match against Berwick,

This was a hard fought, physical contest throughout. After a slow start, Rangers gradually took control, and it was no surprise when Sentanza pounded on a Lee Wallace shot parried by the Peterhead keeper to make it 1-0. Rangers wasted numerous chances, David Templeton in particular having several opportunities to increase the lead.

Peterhead continued to battle away even after Rory McAllister was sent off in the 65th minute for a second bookable offence, pressing for an equaliser towards the end of the game.

Another win, another three points, another step closer to the Sottish Football League Division Three title, which when it comes, will be another trophy that Celtic have never won.

Rangers: Neil Alexander, Chris Hegarty, Ross Perry, Emilson Olibari, Lee Wallace, Lewis MacLeod, Kyle Hutton, Ian Black, David Templeton, Francisco Sandaza, Andrew Little

Subs: Scott Gallacher, Robbie Crawford, Dean Shiels, Barrie McKay, Sebastian Faure
