Rangers play 1st match since demotion to 4th tier

Glasgow Rangers played their first match since being demoted to

the fourth tier of Scottish soccer, winning 2-1 at Brechin on

Sunday in the first round of the Ramsdens Cup on Lee McCulloch’s

overtime goal.

McCulloch scored in the 102nd minute at Glebe Park with a header

from a corner.

Starting U.S. captain Carlos Bocanegra, Rangers went ahead on

Andy Little’s fourth-minute goal, but Andy Jackson tied it for

third-tier Brechin in the 43rd minute.

Rangers were forced into liquidation with tax debts exceeding

$30 million and relegated to Scotland’s lowest professional league.

The 54-time Scottish champions have also been banned from European

soccer for three years and lost many of their best players.
