    SPL (SPFL1), Saturday 22/08/2020 : Rangers 2-0 Kilmarnock

    That was a much more direct performance from Rangers today, the dithering play of late was gone. It seemed a touch frantic at times, but I am not complaining. Second half goals from Roofe and Kent won this match, but there could have been more than just two today.

    I will update all the other scores from this weekend in this post.


    SPL matches, 22-23/08/2020 :

    Saturday 22nd August
    Dundee United 0-1 Celtic
    Motherwell 0-1 Hamilton Academical
    Rangers 2-0 Kilmarnock
    St Mirren 1-1 Ross County

    Sunday 23rd August
    Aberdeen 2-1 Livingston
    St Johnstone 0-1 Hibernian

    SPL (SPFL1), Saturday 29/08/2020 : Hamilton Academical v Rangers, KO 17:30 hours, SKY.

    24/08/2020 : The Roofe (not 'Roffe'!) Itten partnership is worth continuing and I hope we see it again at Hamilton. Whether we will see Morelos again seems doubtful.
    In any event, let us see Rangers win again, with another clean sheet as a bonus, on Saturday.

    SPL (SPFL1), Saturday 29/08/2020 : Hamilton Academical 0-2 Rangers

    Another win and 6 clean sheets in a row for Rangers, equalling Celtic's 1906 record.
    We should have had more than the 2 goals scored today by Hagi and Tavernier, as several chances were missed. We were denied a penalty too.


    SPL matches, 29-30/08/2020 :

    Saturday 29th August
    Hamilton Academical 0-2 Rangers
    Kilmarnock 4-0 Dundee United
    Livingston 1-0 Ross County
    St Johnstone 1-0 St Mirren

    Sunday 30th August
    Celtic 3-0 Motherwell
    Hibernian 0-1 Aberdeen

    13/09/2020 : Rangers (sans Fans) travel to Gibraltar for this one-off match while RTV will cover it worldwide from Ibrox. If needed, there will be extra time and penalties to determine the result.

    Europa League 2nd Qualifying Round Thursday, 17/09/2020 : Lincoln Red Imps (Gib) 0-5 Rangers

    That was a comprehensive victory in what had all the atmosphere of a training match. The goals came from Tavernier, Goldson, Morelos, Defoe and finally Morelos again.
    The game and result far exceeded the quality of the video, which was like watching an illegal stream.
    It had blocking, smearing, false colouring, buffering interrupts both video and audio, all capped by a blue screen blackout just as Defoe scored our 4th goal ... RTV must do better !
    I had purchased this match earlier today but every link from Rangers led me to the purchase page instead of the video. It was only when I clicked on the faded out Lincoln Red Imps v Rangers match that the video opened and played, with the game 2 minutes old. Today's match was listed under Rangers v Ross County - which was marked as 'Purchased' !

    Our next tie will also be on RTV ... away to Willem II ... after their victory yesterday.

    16/09/2020 : Europa Lge 2nd QR : Progres Niederkorn (Lux) 0-5 Willem II (NED)

    SPL (SPFL1), Sunday 20/09/2020 : Hibernian 2-2 Rangers

    Per Sportsound and my Twitter feed today. Rangers missed early chances then fell behind after 22 minutes, but equalised (Morelos) at the end of the 1st half. Arfield gave us a 2nd half lead, but Hibernian equalised (offside not given) and it ended level. So we play 7 games before conceding a goal, then two come along at once. Back on top of the table, but two points dropped.


    SPL matches, 19-20/09/2020 :

    Saturday 19th September
    Celtic 3-2 Livingston
    Dundee United 2-1 St Mirren
    Kilmarnock 2-1 Hamilton Academical
    St Johnstone 0-1 Ross County

    Sunday 20th September

    Europa League 3rd Qualifying Round, Thursday 24/09/2020 :

    Willem II (Ned) v Rangers, KO 20:00 hours, RTV - including UK/ROI.

    20/09/2020 : I checked out our opponents' name and share my findings and sources below.
    Rangers' opponents are named after King William II of the Netherlands (born in 1792 and Reigned from 1840 to 1849) and were formerly known as Tilburg.
    They are not named after William II, Prince of Orange, nor after his son King William III (William II in Scotland), who Reigned in Great Britain from 1688 to 1704 and is known colloquially as 'King Billy'.

    Link to King : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_II_of_the_Netherlands
