Same Old Rangers... Always Cheating!!!

Rangers cheated their way to a 3-3 draw at Tannadice this afternoon, after Dundee United deservedly took the lead 3 times against the over-rated Glasgow side.

Kris Boyd was an absolute disgrace - diving to the ground at every opportunity in an attempt to win free kicks and penalties, but amazingly managed to avoid even getting booked for his antics.

Dundee United took the lead in the first half, after a well worked free-kick resulted in Christian Kalvenes slamming the rebound past Allan McGregor in the 37th minute.

However, it was a dive from Kris Boyd that lead to Rangers equaliser just before half-time, after the assistant referee on the far side was conned when he threw himself to the ground.

Barry Ferguson took the resultant free-kick and David Weir headed Rangers back into the match, with just a few minutes remaining of the 1st half.

Before the end of the 1st half, Boyd was then seen squaring up to Willkie, kicking the United defender off-the-ball, but was only warned by referee Charlie Richmond.

In the 2nd half, Nacho Novo scored a 58th minute offside goal to cancelled out Noel Hunts 51st minute strike.

Then, in a replica of his Cup Final equaliser a few weeks ago, Kris Boyd capitalised on a bad back-pass from Willo Flood to make it 3-3, after Carlos Cuellar`s 65th minute own-goal had put United 3-2 in front.

However, before his 67th minute strike, Boyd was seen diving inside the penalty box and was then lucky to avoid a straight red card after one of the worst dives ever seen in Scottish Football.

It was in the closing stages of the match, as Rangers threw 5 attackers on in search of an undeserved winner.

Suddenly, Boyd looked to be clear down the right-wing, with United defender Christian Kalvenes in hot pursuit.

Then, without warning the Rangers striker fell to the ground like he`d been shot, claiming for a free-kick and hoping to see Kalvenes sent-off as the last man.

However, the assistant referee was in a great position and informed the referee that there was no contact, but referee Charlie Richmond completely bottled out of even booking Boyd.

Boyd was then quickly replaced by Steven Naismith, as Walter Smith made the decision to make the substitution, before he was sent-off - though that was probably unlikely, since referee Richmond obviously has a soft spot for the Ger's number 09.
