Rangers 2 Dundee United 0 LIVE reaction as rotated side delay Celtic party

There was a feeling of “after the Lord Mayor’s” show for Rangers in Govan this afternoon.

For some, the midweek Europa League semi final win over RB Leipzig was the best atmosphere ever witnessed at Ibrox Stadium.

So how do they follow that up for a fixture in a league campaign that they know is already over?

By securing a comfortable 2-0 Premiership win over Dundee United that delays Celtic’s title part by at least another matchday.

After a cagey first half that they were always on top of, James Tavernier popped up with a trademark penalty to put his team ahead after half-time.

Amad Diallo then put the finishing touches on a fine week for Rangers.

There was the pride factor of not wanting to slip up and hand Celtic the title back after working so hard for a decade to get their hands on it.

There are also places up for grabs for that Europa League final against Eintracht Frankfurt and Scottish Cup final against Hearts later this month to play for, and several fringe players got their chance.

Plenty was riding on it for Tam Courts’ side who are looking to end an impressive debut season under his command by securing football for Dundee United.

But Rangers were too much for them – follow for live reaction.
