Rangers 1 - 1 Aberdeen

HT Score: Rangers 1 - 0 Aberdeen

Scottish Reserve League
Rangers scorers: Gilchrist
Aberdeen scorers: Soye 85.

05/03/1910 | KO:

The local reserves were engaged at Ibrox on Saturday in the reserve League competition against Rangers A. There was a fair attendance, and the play served up was fast and exciting for some time. With little luck, Aberdeen ought to have opened the scoring, but somehow they generally got baulked when in good positions. The home side opened their account after half an hour's play, and this proved all the scoring in the first period. Aberdeen could not be denied in the second half, Rangers having to defend most of the time, and it was only their due when Soye equalised, though McKay and Hay should have done the trick prior to this. On the Aberdeen side, Hannah and Harper were most prominent in the rear-guard, and the left wing by far the best in the van. Edgar was the star, and his nippy passes ought to have been better utilised than they were.

At Ibrox Park, before fully 2000 spectators. Teams:-

Rangers A: McFarlane; D. Wilson, Bell; J. Riley, Ramsay, McLean; J. J. Highnet, Page, Gilchrist, Yuill, Duncan.
Aberdeen A: King; Hannah, Low; Moffat, Harper, Henderson; Hay, Soye, Mackay, Edgar, Jaffrey.
Referee - Mr. J. West, Paisley.

Rangers kicked off, and immediately attacked, but Gilchrist was in early brought up for offside. A fine center by Riley led to a raid on aberdeen's goal, and although harassed by Gilchrist and Yuill, King brought off a clever clearance. Highnet then had a brilliant run on his own, but finished by shooting over. Aberdeen's forwards got away, and for several minutes the Rangers' goal was in danger. A free kick brought play to King, when Gilchrist sent high over. Highnet gave Gilchrist another chance, and this time the Rangers' centre made no mistake with his shot, King having no chance to save. The visitors once again got down on Macfarlane, who fumbled a shot from Jaffrey. MacKay ran in, but put the ball on the wrong side of the net, and Rangers' custodian was called upon to handle a shot from Jaffrey, and failed to hold the ball. Wilson, however, stepped in and cleared. Aberdeen continued to attack, and the Rangers' goal ran a narrow escape, a centre by Mackay travelling too fast to be caught up. Half-time was called with play in midfield.

On resuming, the visitors attacked, and Macfarlane distinguished himself by his brilliant saving. He stopped shots from close-range by Soye, MacKay, and Edgar. Rangers then had an innings, and forced a corner, which Gilchrist headed past. A run by Highnet looked promising. He centred, and Gilchrist when in the act of shooting was spoiled by one of his own side. The ball went to Duncan, whose parting shot was wide of the mark. The Ibrox men hovered round King for some time, forcing two unproductive corners. A pass by Edgar let Jaffrey away, and the latter, racing ahead, had a shot on his own, which just skimmed the bar. The visitors now strove hard to equalise, and Edgar sent past. Five minutes from the finish Soye found the net with a brilliant shot.
