Glasgow Rangers are fast becoming this seasons drawing specialists after Saturday’s one all draw at home to Hibernian (24 Oct 09).

That’s now a total of five matches drawn so far this season in all competitions and most worrying of all is that four of those five draws have come in the SPL – not quite what you would call championship winning form eh?...

Maurice Edu alleges he was the victim of racial abuse after last nights Champions League defeat by Unirea Urziceni.

The American international who is currently fighting his way back from injury, posted a ‘tweet’ on his twitter site this morning claiming that he had been racially abused whilst he got into his car.

Rangers put quite simply were embarrassed by Romanian Champions Unirea Urziceni this evening as they went down to a second successive 4 – 1 defeat at Ibrox in the Champions League.

The loss leaves Rangers with just a paltry point from three matches and they now face an uphill struggle to qualify for the last 16 of the competition.

The Rangers Hall of Fame was set up by Sir David Murray back in 2000 to honour the clubs past and modern day greats who have helped make Rangers Football Club the huge success it is today.

What’s so special about the Rangers Hall of Fame is that it’s the fans who vote every year on who should be elected to this elite member’s only club.

A battle of tactical minds took place on Saturday (17th Oct 09) as former pupil Derek McIness took on his old ‘gaffer’ Walter Smith as Rangers beat St Johnstone 2 – 1 away at MacDiarmid Park.

It’s fair to say it was a rather sluggish start for the SPL Champions and generally a below par performance all round, however with Celtic dropping points at home to Motherwell I don’t anticipate too much of a post-match-mortem from the fans as Rangers go top of the League.

The treatment table at Ibrox and Murray Park has seen a fair bit of action of late which reflected in manager Walter Smith’s make shift defence in the 2 – 1 win against Celtic at the weekend.

Rookie Andy Little making his debut for Rangers was the first injury victim in Sundays Old Firm Clash when he pulled a hamstring just minutes into the match and now faces up to six weeks on the sidelines.

There is allegedly a goal drought at Rangers of late but no one told striker Kenny Miller as he grabbed a super first half double as Rangers drew first blood against arch rivals Celtic at Ibrox on Sunday afternoon.

The first half was the archetypal blueprint for any Old Firm clash - frantically fast paced with end to end gung ho action. All three goals came inside the first 25 minutes but it was Kenny Miller who broke the deadlock after just eight minutes.
