Glasgow kiss

Our mixed bag of a pre-season ended on a low note this afternoon, with a 2-1 defeat to Rangers at Ibrox. The home side's goals came from Kenny Miller in the first half and Steven Naismith in the second, with our reply courtesy of substitute Peter Lovenkrands, the ex-Gers man scoring with his first touch and repaying the Ibrox crowd's warm reception by refusing to celebrate.

We didn't do enough to merit an equaliser, but more worrying was the disappointing overall performance of what is very likely to be the XI that starts at Old Trafford a week on Monday (injuries permitting) - a 4-5-1 formation with Wayne Routledge, ASBO, Danny Guthrie, Kevin Nolan and Spidermag across the middle and Bigger Lad as the lone striker.

So, that first game of the season just got a whole lot more daunting - but let's cling to the crumb of comfort that was our last visit to the Theatre of Nightmares, eh? Any result other than defeat, achieved by any means, would be gladly received.
