Report: Peterhead (h)
So with the first round of games in the third division complete, Rangers were once again up against Peterhead whom they started their campaign against way back in August with a 2-2 draw. This time the teams met at Ibrox.
Rangers had just had a week of cup games, with mixed fortunes. Knocked out of the league cup at the quarter-final stage by Inverness Caledonian Thistle with a horrible 3-0 home defeat, then a superb 7-0 victory over Alloa Athletic in the third round of the Scottish Cup.
It was a tight affair in the first half with Peterhead missing a glorious early chance. Lee McCulloch, scoring for fun this season gave Rangers a 1-0 lead though just before half-time. In a game of few chances, Rangers sealed victory with a Lee Wallace goal in the 66th minute.
One observation, Peterhead seemed to be wearing Rangers away strip from last season. Umbro obviously giving them Rangers' hand me downs there.
