Rangers 1-1 Elgin City

Highlights - Rangers 1-1 Elgin City

Ten-man Elgin City stunned Ibrox by fighting back to claim a draw against Third Division leaders Rangers.

Lewis Macleod's low shot gave the hosts the lead early on with Paul Harkins dismissed for a tackle on Ian Black before half-time.

But Rangers were unable to make their numerical advantage count.

And the visitors drew level three minutes from the end as goalkeeper Neil Alexander spilled the ball over the line following Stuart Leslie's header.

Ally McCoist's side, who remain 17 points clear, were left to rue a second-half miss by Lee McCulloch, with David Templeton and Dean Shiels also going close with volleys.

And Ross Jack's men become the first visiting team to claim league points at Ibrox this season.
