Dunfermline Athletic 0-0 Stenhousemuir

Dunfermline all but handed the Scottish League One title to Rangers after a goalless draw with Stenhousemuir.

A win over Airdrie at Ibrox on Wednesday would give the Glasgow giants an unassailable lead over the Pars.

Lawrence Shankland passed up the hosts' best chance as early as nine minutes when he was clean through.

Shankland threatened again in the second-half along with Jonathan Page and Allan Smith, but they could not break down a resolute Stenhousemuir.
