Match Report

Noone will ever convince Dundee they weren't robbed of an outright win against Rangers in yesterday's Scottish Cup-tie at Dens.

As it is, the Dark Blues still have the chance to win Saturday's replay at Ibrox.

Dundee are still so angry I for one certainly wouldn't bet against that happening.

Walker McCall scored what appeared a perfectly legitimate 56th-minute goal. However, it was controversially disallowed. Now Dundee have to travel to Glasgow to try to earn a semi- final spot.

At the time it appeared the stand-side linesman had flagged for a foul against McCall. But afterwards I gathered the reason given was that keeper Walker fisted MacDonald's header on to the bar. The ball rebounded above the bar and out of play before being blown back into play by the wind.

Even if that is so, the least Dundee should have had was a corner. Certainly not the free kick at the ball Walker was given from his six-yard box by referee Alan Ferguson (Glasgow).

Naturally, Dundee manager Archie Knox had to be very careful what he said afterwards. "I was very pleased with our performance. I was not pleased with the final result.

"I should be happy having come back twice. But obviously I thought we should have won for various reasons."

His Ibrox counterpart, Jock Wallace, said, "Dundee fought harder than us. Certainly we can have no complaints about the result."
