Aribo in action for 90 minutes as Dundee United shock Rangers

Aribo in action for 90 minutes as Dundee United shock Rangers

Super Eagles ace Joe Aribo was in action for 90 minutes as Scottish Champions Glasgow Rangers took on second opponents Dundee United on Saturday after the season opener against Livingstone

Rangers who had impressive pre-season run including a 2-1 defeat of La Liga giants Real Madrid had hoped to continue with their league unbeaten run as the new season got on the way, but it was not to be as Dundee United put a dent on record.

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. The entire first half had gone with no goals and with hope that the league defending champions will find the curtain raiser somehow, but it was in the second half that Dundee found the net in the 64th minute.

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.
