Rangers v Aberdeen, Southampton v Fulham and more: clockwatch – live!
Rangers chase unbeaten season, Bundesliga, Serie A updatesFC Andorra: Sarabia and Piqué regroup in the mountainsAny thoughts? You can email rob.smyth@theguardian.com 1.28pm BST Rangers 2-0 Aberdeen As expected, Rangers have been too hot for Aberdeen to handle at Ibrox. They took the lead after five minutes thanks to a farcical own goal from the keeper Joe Lewis, and Kemar Roofe got the second from close range.There’s a mass party going on outside Ibrox, which hasn’t thrilled everybody.Large crowds of Rangers fans have gathered in Glasgow ahead of their team’s Scottish Premiership match against Aberdeen at Ibrox. Police have told them to disperse.https://t.co/sulLI1aQ8F pic.twitter.com/671SUAmN89 11.38am BST Hello. The Rangers team of 2020-21 are already immortal; in the next hour, they should become Invincibles. Steven Gerrard’s team are 2-0 up at home to Aberdeen, and barring a second-half fiasco they will become the first Rangers side since 1899 to stay unbeaten throughout a league season. It would be a helluva way to complete their nine-year ascent from rock bottom. Rangers v Aberdeen, which kicked off at 12.30pm, is one of the highlights of a clockwatch that is almost entirely England-free. There are a couple of Premier League games, though both Burnley v Leeds and Southampton v Fulham are only really of interest to the partisan and the Fantasy League addicts. There’s nothing much riding on either. Continue reading...
