Match Report


Hearts topped the league, but we were one of three clubs just a point behind the leaders. Rangers, our visitors, were well down the table and in search of a much needed victory. Played in monsoon-like conditions, neither side was able to fashion a goal with United probably edging the first half, going forward at every opportunity in the deteriorating conditions.

Rangers dealt an early hammer-blow with a goal a minute after the interval. O'Hara neatly heading in a Tommy McLean cross. When Doug Houston set up Alfie Conn's second in the 76th minute, the game appeared over as a contest, but within a minute we pulled one back Frank Kopel directed in a shot from the left which spun off Derek Johnstone and past McCloy. 'Super Sub' Alfie Conn settled it in the visitor's favour with his second goal six minutes from the end when he scored with a fine individual effort.
