Scottish Premiership: Balogun, Aribo Help Rangers Maintain Unbeaten Run After Draw At Motherwell

Leon Balogun and Joe Aribo were in action for Rangers who kept their unbeaten run in the Scottish Premiership alive, and moved 21 points clear of Celtic after rescuing a 1-1 draw at bottom-side Motherwell on Sunday.

Rangers have now gone 24 league games without a single defeat this season, winning 21 and drawing three.

The league leaders, whose 15-game winning streak is now over, were made to work extremely hard by Graham Alexander’s side, who took the lead in the 21st minute through Devante Cole.

Rangers, who dominated much of the game, pushed hard for an equaliser, and they eventually got the breakthrough thanks to substitute Cedric Itten 18 minutes from time.

Itten headed home from close range his fourth goal in three games against Motherwell.

Steven Gerrard threw on Jermain Defoe late on as Rangers pushed for a winner and the striker had a chance to win the game in stoppage time, but his strike was well saved by goalkeeper Liam Kelly. 

Motherwell held firm for a point which takes them off the bottom of the table on goal difference.

Rangers are now on 66 points while Celtic, who were held to a goalless draw at home by Livingston on Saturday, remain second on 45 points.
