Rangers B suffer heavy defeat against Stirling University in Lowland League

Rangers B were on the wrong end of a heavy 4-0 defeat this afternoon as David McCallum’s side lost to University of Stirling at Forthbank in the Lowland League.

The Light Blues were much closer than the scoreline suggests as the Students ran out winners, denting the Gers’ chances of finishing second in the Lowland League this season.

The Gers made four changes from their last outing against Bonnyrigg Rose with Aaron Cervantes handed a rare start in goals.

With less than 20 minutes played, Rangers were a goal down despite starting fairly well; after a brilliant individual goal saw Stirling’s McArthur drift in from the right and beat a couple of Gers players before firing beyond Cervantes.

Seven minutes after opening the scoring, the hosts doubled their lead, Conor Doan knocking the ball home from a corner.

Rangers started to mount something resembling a fightback as the opening half wore on, the Gers having a slew of corners but failing to convert their chances.

Five minutes after the restart, it was game over, Jamie Penker firing beyond Cervantes after Rangers were robbed of possession in a dangerous area.

The Light Blues continued to create chances though, Weston and McCausland both forcing good saves from Ben Fry in the Stirling goal.

With the result beyond doubt, the hosts made it 4-0 in the final minute when Euan McGill slotted home and put the cap on an impressive result for the Students.

Rangers: Cervantes, Devine, Yfeko, Fraser, McClelland, Miller, Lyall, Ritchie-Hosler, Weston, McCann, McCausland.
Subs: Budinauckas, Ewen, McKinnon, Dunlop, Roberston.
