We were a soft touch admits Dillon

Sean Dillon was left very disappointed by the way Dundee United eventually caved in against Rangers at Ibrox at the weekend.

The Irishman actually helped the visitors on their way to a 4-0 defeat after putting the ball past his own keeper during the early stages.

Rangers striker Kenny Miller then twice added to it after the break and substitute Steven Naismith also found the target as the Arabs fell away badly as the game progressed.

"For the first goal I was simply trying to stop Nikica Jelavic from getting there. I got across him, Garry Kenneth just missed it and my touch went in," Dillon admitted to the Daily Record. "I should have done better.

"But I still thought we were in the game for an hour after that. The second goal knocked us but we were 3-1 down here the last time in the Scottish Cup and pulled it back," he continued. "Our heads dropped a wee bit and that shouldn't have happened. Rangers smelt blood and that was it from 2-0 onwards.

"We battled back well at Ibrox last season but we didn't do it this time."
