Rangers 0-2 Motherwell - Moment of magic hands Gers woeful loss
By James Black
Motherwell booked their place in next month’s Scottish League Cup final with a 2-0 win over Rangers at Hampden Park on Sunday.
Louis Moult’s second-half double secured the win for Stephen Robinson’s side in a fiery clash at the Scottish national ground.
Moult scrambled home ‘Well’s opener after Jak Alnwick flapped at a corner early in the second-half before a moment of magic when he lobbed the Gers keeper from distance 20 minutes later with a stunning strike.
The sides were even in the first-half with both keepers being tested.
Rangers really should have had an early goal and were wasteful in the final-third with Josh Windass particularly guilty.

‘Well almost grabbed the opener in the first-half but Ryan Jack cleared the ball off the goal-line to spare his side’s blushes.
Motherwell finally got their goal after 54 minutes when Moult reacted quickest to a spilled corner and fired home from close-range.
The goal really took the wind out of Rangers’ sails and before long it was 2-0 when Alnwick was beaten by Moult’s audacious 25-yard lob.
Caixinha’s side collapsed after conceding and looked to have lost any fight they may have had in them.
Referee Steven McLean’s performance was especially poor as he missed several red cards, dismissed both managers over nothing and ignored two head injuries – one involving an eyebrow gash for Moult and the other a shattered nose for Fabio Cardoso.
