Enjoy the rest of your Saturday. Good night.

Please join us again tomorrow for live coverage of Aberdeen v Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.

Almost time for me to go...

Rangers manager Stuart McCall

"Delighted but, obviously, it's only half-time. Really pleased to be going back to Ibrox next Sunday with a victory. The work ethic was there."

Queen of the South manager James Fowler

"I think the players can be pleased with their performance. We can go there [Ibrox] and get a result. If we can get the first goal, it makes it really interesting."

How significant will Dean Shiels' goal prove to be?


Queen of the South 1-2 Rangers

Rangers hold the advantage going into the Scottish Premiership play-off quarter-final second leg. Dean Shiels' header was the winning goal on the night and the two sides will meet again at Ibrox at week on Sunday.

Rangers goalkeeper Cammy Bell kicks the ball out of play so team-mate Richard Foster can receive treatment.


Four minutes of stoppage time begin.

And now Iain Russell replaces Lewis Kidd for Queen of the South.

Another change for Rangers. Former Queens striker Nicky Clark takes over from Haris Vuckic.

How will Queens respond to falling behind again? They had Rangers rattled and looked the more likely to get a winner until that Dean Shiels goal.

After weathering the storm, Rangers move upfield and Richard Foster's lovely dinked cross is headed past Zander Clark by Dean Shiels.

"Queens cannot be suppressed. Their resilient spirit has allowed them to reclaim ownership of this game as well as the equaliser. They are lively and full of intent, and it is Rangers who now need to regroup.

"A moment of boldness, or a moment of haplessness, might yet see one of these teams carry an advantage into the second leg. For now, they are slugging out a fascinating encounter."

Rangers goalkeeper Cammy Bell falls awkwardly after making a clearance and needs treatment from his physio before carrying on.

This match is heating up. Danny Carmichael tries to jink his way past Richard Foster and the Rangers full-back cynically takes the Queens man out. Booking for Foster.


Queen of the South 1-1 Rangers

Kevin Holt cuts in from the left and tries to bend a shot high past Cammy Bell but the Rangers goalkeeper stretches out a hand to make an important save.

Midway through the second half now. Will either side be able to take a lead to Ibrox for the second leg?


Gavin Reilly spins away from Marius Zaliukas and is then tripped by the defender, prompting a yellow card for the Rangers defender.

That was poor marking from Rangers and a couple of bodies fell over as the delivery came in. The tie is level again.


Queen of the South 1-1 Rangers (Lyle)

The hosts are level with Derek Lyle left unmarked at the back post to simply nod home Ian McShane's inswinging corner.

Now Rangers are forced into a change. Goalscorer Steven Smith pulls up, possibly with cramp, and he goes off to be replaced by Robbie Crawford.

Mark Millar replaces Stephen McKenna for Queen of the South.

Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

Game going from end to end at the moment. Stephen McKenna headed wide for the hosts at a corner before Nicky Law sent a looping header into the hands of Queens goalkeeper Zander Clark.


Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

Rangers press at the start of the second half with Kenny Miller's curled shot kept out by Zander Clark and then Stevn Smith's chip is headed clear near the goal line.


Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

The second half resumes with Queen of the South kicking off.

Richard Wilson

BBC Scotland at Palmerston

"A precious lead for Rangers late in the first-half half, but also a cause for Queens to feel aggrieved since they contested the award of the free-kick that Steven Smith converted.

"That might provide an added motivation for the second half, and Rangers are likely to try to maintain their lead rather than add to it, so the play will remain evenly contested.

"At this stage, the next goal is crucial in terms of the overall state of the tie. Which team will now hold its nerve?"


Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

Rangers have the advantage at the break courtesy of that wonderful Steven Smith free-kick but Queen of the South feel aggrieved about the lack of a foul in their favour in the build up to the goal.

The Queen of the South players are unhappy they did not get a free-kick just before Haris Vuckic went down, feeling the Rangers midfielder himself had been guilty of an infringement.


Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers (Smith)

Rangers are awarded a free-kick after Haris Vuckic is felled and Steven Smith superbly curls the ball powerfully over the wall and into the net via the underside of the crossbar.

Tony: "Rangers playing well. QOS cautious so far #bbcscotfootball"

Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

Marius Zaliukas clatters into the back of Gavin Reilly after both leap to head the ball and Queens have a free-kick. Lewis Kidd tries a shot but it comes back off the wall and the danger is soon cleared.

Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

Now the hosts have a go and Derek Lyle lifts an effort into the hands of Cammy Bell in the Rangers goal.

Andy Murdoch fires a long-range shot at the Queens goal and keeper Zander Clark claims at the second attempt.

Former Rangers player Derek Ferguson

"Rangers have shown good discipline. It's the runners from the middle of the park that have caused Queens problems."

Richard Wilson

BBC Scotland at Palmerston

"Having matched up with Queens in terms of shape, with a back three and five in midfield, Rangers have also adopted their hosts' tactics. They are hitting Queens on the break, trying to spring Kenny Miller and Haris Vuckic beyond the back line.

"The home side are doing the same with Derek Lyle and Gavin Reilly, and it is the Rangers defence that has tended to contain the most alarmed figures in Marius Zaliukas - whenever the ball is near him - and Lee Wallace if the ball is played over his head.

"The game is still, though, finely and tensely balanced. Both sides are focused on not conceding."
