Match Report


Although Berwick failed to win their improvement continued in an entertaining game with Clydebank at Shielfield.

Rangers did more than enough to take the points and even before John Stoddart failed with a penalty kick in the last five minutes the issue should have been settled.

Admittedly Mike McDonald turned in a first class display in the Bankies goal but he was aided by the very indifferent home finishing.

The Clydebank goal was an example of how quickly fortunes can change on the soccer field. Rangers had settled and were shaping well when Hogg from about six yards cracked a shot against the crossbar which should have been in the net.

Straightaway Clydebank raced to the other end to catch the home defence napping, and Munro put them ahead. Then Hogg blazed wide again from an easy scoring position

Rangers stormed through the second half and after Tait hit the equaliser in 72 minutes it seemed odds on victory.
