Scottish PL Roundup, Apr. 14

Rangers’ progress toward a second straight Scottish Premier League

title was temporarily held up Wednesday by a 0-0 draw at Dundee

United.

Victory would have meant Rangers needed only to beat Hearts

at Ibrox on Sunday to secure the championship, but it now needs

second-place Celtic to drop points against Hibernian on Saturday or

it will have to wait another week.

Third-place Dundee United secured a point at Tannadice

despite defender Mihael Kovacevic being sent off for kicking Kyle

Lafferty in the 70th minute.

Rangers has 77 points to Celtic’s 66. Dundee United has 59.
