Glasgow (AFP) – Glasgow Rangers were beaten for the first time in 41 league games as Dundee United handed the Scottish Premiership champions a shock 1-0 defeat on Saturday.
Jamie Robson’s second half strike at Tannadice condemned Steven Gerrard’s side to their first league loss since Hamilton beat them in March 2020.
After opening their title defence with a comfortable victory against Livingston last weekend, this was a reality check for Rangers.
Although Rangers dominated possession and had more attempts on goal, they looked toothless for long periods and Robson made them pay.
It rounded off a frustrating week for the Glasgow club, who were beaten 2-1 in Malmo in the first leg of their Champions League qualifier on Tuesday.
Rangers have to bounce back quickly as Malmo visit Ibrox for the crucial second leg on Tuesday, while the first Old Firm derby of the season against Celtic looms on August 29.
