Ross County’s Heroics: Comeback Victory Shakes Up Rangers’ Title Aspirations

Ross County secured a historic victory over Rangers, marking their first-ever win against the Glasgow side and dealing a significant blow to Rangers’ Scottish Premiership title hopes. Despite Rangers taking an early lead with Jack Baldwin’s own goal, County staged a remarkable comeback with goals from Simon Murray, George Harmon, and Josh Sims. Despite James Tavernier’s late penalty for the Rangers, County held on for a famous win.

The victory narrowed the gap between the county and St. Johnstone to just one point, boosting the county’s hopes of avoiding relegation. On the other hand, the Rangers now find themselves four points adrift at the top of the table, with their title aspirations taking a hit.

Both teams made numerous changes to their lineups, with the County aiming to bounce back from recent defeats and the Rangers seeking to maintain their title challenge. Despite the Rangers’ strong away record, County sensed an opportunity to make history and capitalized on it with a spirited performance.

Ross County interim manager Don Cowie praised his team’s performance, emphasizing the importance of a collective effort. Rangers manager Philippe Clement expressed disappointment with his team’s display, highlighting defensive errors and a lack of quality on the ball.

Looking ahead, Rangers face Dundee and Heart of Midlothian in upcoming fixtures, while both Rangers and County await the final league fixtures after the Premiership splits into two.
