Rangers slumped to a disappointing Glasgow derby defeat as Kyogo Furuhashi’s first-half volley ensured they drew first blood in the Scottish Premiership title race at Ibrox.
A frantic contest, played in front of a capacity home crowd in the absence of away supporters, was settled by the Japanese talisman on a hugely frsutrating afternoon for Michael Beale’s side.
The Light Blues had two goals disallowed by referee Don Robertson before half-time when Rabbi Matondo’s first minute opener was ruled out by the offside flag before Kemar Roofe found the net with a neat finish but a controversial VAR call saw Cyriel Dessers penalised for fouling Gustaf Lagerbielke in the build-up.
The result capped off a horrendous week for Rangers after missing out on a place in the Champions League group stages in midweek. It leaves Beale’s side trailing the Scottish champions by four points in the league heading into the international break.
