Rangers back on top for now

9:31 am on 17 May 2009

Rangers have moved top of the Scottish Premier football League with a 2-1 victory over Aberdeen in a controversial encounter at Ibrox.

Both teams were reduced to 10 men in a scoreless first half.

An own goal handed Rangers the lead on 66 minutes and they scored their second soon afterwards.

The result takes Rangers three points clear of Celtic, who boast a superior goal difference by one and can reclaim top spot with victory over Hibernian tonight.
