Rangers 3 Dundee United 1: Rangers fail to shake the Plain Jane comparison

From Pygmalion to Educating Rita, great metamorphosis dramas all contain a "reveal" scene where the swan emerges. But given that this SPL season has had such a varied blend of tragic, comic, tacky, farcical and epic moments, for comparisons with Rangers it is more appropriate to trawl not Ovid or Russell but Neighbours.

Smith holding nothing back for Uefa final as Rangers focus on title

Saturday, 10 May 2008

With six games to play in 15 days in three competitions, beginning at lunchtime today at Ibrox against Dundee United, Rangers might be forgiven for having one eye already Wednesday's European final, their first in 36 years.

SPL ruling on Rangers is wrong, says Burley

Thursday, 8 May 2008

The Scotland manager George Burley has called for the Scottish Premier League to make changes ahead of next season in the wake of the Rangers fixture row. The Ibrox club yesterday failed in their bid to have Saturday's Premier League game against Dundee United postponed to allow more time to prepare for the Uefa Cup final against Zenit St Petersburg in Manchester next Wednesday.

Rangers 1 Motherwell 0: Ferguson strike keeps Rangers on title course

Thursday, 8 May 2008

Falkirk 2 Hearts 1: Finnigan's header gives Falkirk hope of leading lesser lights

Tuesday, 6 May 2008

Hibernian 0 Rangers 0: Hibs leave tired Rangers with no room for 'slip-ups'

Monday, 5 May 2008

Rangers' pursuit of a remarkable quadruple remains on, but their margin for domestic error decreased significantly at Easter Road yesterday. Less than three days after sweating their way to a penalty shoot-out victory at Fiorentina to reach the Uefa Cup final, Rangers took the game to Hibernian in the second half here, but too many of Walter Smith's players looked as if Thursday night was still in their system.

Motherwell 1 Celtic 2: Samaras piles more pressure on Rangers

Sunday, 4 May 2008

Gordon Strachan's gamble of throwing Georgios Samaras into the cauldron here paid off when the towering Greek striker bore the gift of a matchwinner that could yet see the title stay with Celtic. Samaras came off the bench and completed Celtic's comeback with a clinical 79th-minute header to widen the gap between Strachan's team and Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premier League to eight points. Their Old Firm rivals have four games in hand, starting with a hard trip to Hibernian today, but the pressure not to slip up is intense for both sides.

Rangers return to title marathon after a cup night to savour

Saturday, 3 May 2008

Stylish, perhaps not. Dramatic, without question. That sums up Rangers' win on penalties at Fiorentina in the Uefa Cup semi-final late on Thursday night after a 120-minute battle not to concede a goal, latterly with 10 men. It could yet be the campaign's epitaph.

Celtic 3 Rangers 2: Robson penalty puts pressure on Rangers

Monday, 28 April 2008

The stadium DJ ended this cracker – a fitting final Old Firm derby in a season likely to go to the wire – with a cute, if acidic touch. He played Queen and David Bowie's "Under Pressure". After this, Rangers are.
