Motherwell comfortably ensured that Rangers would be playing Scottish Championship football for at least another year after walloping them over the two-legged play-off final by an aggregate score of 6-1.
Having won the away leg 3-1 at Ibrox four days previous, Well followed up with a convincing 3-0 victory at Fir Park on Sunday afternoon to preserve their Premiership status with gusto.
Highlight of the second leg? Easy. It was seeing Rangers midfielder Lee McCulloch – yes, he’s still plugging away at the grand old age of 37 – getting poked in the face by a wayward flag pole…
The game was also notable for an outbreak of ungentlemanly fisticuffs at the end which saw no less than three players sent-off after the final whistle.
It all began when Rangers defender/constant liability Bilel Mohsni snubbed a post-game handshake with Motherwell forward Lee Erwin.
Erwin then pushed Mohsni in the back as the Tunisian promptly turned around and leathered him in the face.
The pair were then both shown straight reds along with Erwin’s teammate Fraser Kerr, who got himself entangled in the aftermath also…
A flash-flood of angry fans then invaded the pitch, with the local police subsequently announcing that an investigation has now been launched into the ensuing chaos.
Fun, fun, fun.
