Rangers 2 0 Dundee United Ibrox Victory Delayed Celtics Title Celebrations
On the back of the Rangers 2 0 Dundee United win, the Scottish Premiership leaders remain six points behind their rivals. With two games left, Celtic have the edge with a better goal difference. But what about the record-breaking start of Rangers manager Mark Warburton? And will Jim Baxter return to the club? Read on to find out.
Rangers delay Celtics title race
After Celtic's 3-0 win over St Mirren, a Rangers victory delayed the celebrations with a 2-0 win over Dundee United at Ibrox. Celtic were one point behind the Scottish Premiership leaders after the first leg, but the victory delayed Celtic's title celebrations by one point. Celtic manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst made changes for the match, and James Tavernier scored a penalty and Amad Diallo added a second in the 78th minute. Although Celtic had dominated possession, they were not able to get over Dundee United, who have an inferior goal difference to their Scottish rivals. The victory at Ibrox delayed Celtic's title race until Wednesday, when they host Ross County. It also gave fringe players a chance to get game time. Youngster Leon King made his debut and Charlie McCann and Adam Devine had a taste of action. Celtic remain six points ahead of Rangers in the Scottish Premiership table, but a victory by Rangers will delay their title bid until Wednesday. Rangers were a point ahead of their rivals, but they still had to play one more game to catch up. Dundee United were hoping to get to the Scottish Cup final against Hearts, but the result was a shock, and Celtic's title race will now be delayed until the end of April. However, the Scottish Premiership title race is far from over, and Celtic can now be confident that they will win the title this season.
Winger Amad's debut
Celtic fans will have to wait until Wednesday to see if Rangers can win the Scottish Premiership. The champions won 2-0 against Dundee United, meaning they will have to wait for one more day to celebrate the title. Amad Diallo scored the first goal and assisted on the second, while Angus Gunn was also on target. Rangers'2 0 victory delayed Celtics title celebrations as they remain six points behind their city rivals. The result shook the Celtics'confidence and put pressure on their opponents, despite missing out on a goal from Steven Tavernier. But the Scottish champions were unbeaten in their last nine matches, and the victory has given them the confidence to keep pushing for their first title in four years. The win delayed Celtics'title challenge until at least the end of the season, which has now become a certainty for both clubs. With two games remaining, Celtics have the upper hand. But Rangers remain six points behind them with a superior goal difference. The win against Leipzig was an excellent result for the Scots, but the pressure is on Celtics to make the final in Seville. To prepare for the final, Giovanni van Bronckhorst has shuffled the Rangers pack. The 18-year-old Leon King made his debut after being a substitute in the previous game. Meanwhile, Scott Arfield, Fashion Sakala and Aaron Ramsey all returned to the team.
Mark Warburton's record-breaking start as Rangers manager
It may have looked like a dream come true when the 'Gorge'boss got his first win as manager, but the 4-0 defeat at Celtic Park added more pressure to Ian Cathro, who had already made a huge bid to sign players who had already served him well. But the gaffer's start in charge has come with some problems, and he has been left with questions over his management of the Rangers defence. The tycoon's recent involvement in the dispute with King hasn't harmed his efforts to move Gers forward. The two sides are hoping that a judge will order Ashley to pay the club's legal fees and end the row. But the former England international is keen to avoid a repeat of his disastrous time at Ibrox and is determined to make the club happy in Glasgow. A number of pundits have claimed that the Rangers boss has had an 'awesome'start as the new manager. The team won their fifth consecutive game on Saturday and are 4/1 to win the William Hill Scottish Cup. It has taken them until the semi-final against Hibs to make it through to the final, but the Englandman admits it has been hard to miss the glory.
Jim Baxter's return
Jim Baxter's return to Ranger is a big win for the club and the league. The former Celtic striker is set to join the club from Dundee United, who were beaten by the same team in the first leg of the Scottish Cup final. Baxter was the star of the first leg, scoring a stunning goal in the 18th minute to put the visitors in front. However, Rangers were unable to hold on to their lead, as Gornik Zabrze were able to change tactics and score three goals. When the match was over, the ovation was still going strong and Rangers began to look for a new manager. The former Scotland international was an icon for the club and was one of the most popular players of the 1970s. The left-footed wonder won the Scottish League Cup and was a key part of the team's famous Scotland side of the 1960s. His infamous 2-1 comeback win over Celtic in the League Cup sectional round of the competition is well known and will always be remembered fondly in the hearts of Rangers fans. This is an exciting time to be a Rangers fan. Rangers fans have been celebrating outside Ibrox since their victory in the Scottish Premiership. In addition to the league title, the club has plans to spend the proceeds of the stadium project on improving matchday experiences. The box office will be in touch with season ticket holders today to ensure that the club's supporters are able to enjoy their new stadium.
Jim Baxter's League Cup triumph
Jim Baxter's left-footed wonder was a left-footed legend, a key player in Scotland's celebrated 1960s side. He was nicknamed Slim Jim and was an admired member of the Rangers side. The Rangers win at Ibrox delayed Celtics title hopes. Baxter was an outstanding ballplayer and a popular team captain. Baxter made his Ibrox debut against Partick Thistle in 1960. He played inside left and scored the second goal in a 7-0 rout. The match was a sectional League Cup tie. Nevertheless, Rangers have not lost a cup match at Ibrox since. But they were pushed harder by the Celtics and must wait until at least December to win the trophy. Souness acted like a mastermind by signing Johnston and making the team stronger. The signing ended a tradition of embarrassing Rangers. Rangers have not won the league since 1967, and haven't been able to win the title since then. Souness deserved the title after all. In the meantime, Celtics have clinched the title with a 2-1 victory over Aberdeen. The first goal came in the fifth minute. Dundee had failed to warm the gloves of Chris Wood. In the end, they did manage to get one shot on target. Rangers responded by stepping up a gear. After a defensive lapse, Ally McCoist headed a 15-yard lob past keeper James Westwater.
