Rangers 1-25 for Division Three after day one draw
RANGERS are 1-25 for the Scottish Division Three title by Betfred after only managing an opening-day 2-2 draw at Peterhead.
And it could have been worse for the Gers, who needed a last-minute leveller from Andy Little at Balmoor after falling behind to a Scott McLaughlin rising drive with nine minutes left on the clock. Barry McKay had opened the scoring for Rangers before Rory McAllister equalised for the Blue Toon.
Ladbrokes reacted to the result by offering 6-4 about the Gers going through the campaign unbeaten and the same price about Ally McCoist leaving Rangers before Christmas (1-2 about both to lose at least one game and McCoist to still be at Ibrox afterwards).
St Mirren top the fledgling SPL table on four points from two games following their 2-0 win over Dundee.
But the three teams immediately behind them on three points - Hearts, Dundee United and Celtic - are all yet to play a second game.
Hearts are 5-4 with Betfred to win Sunday lunchtime's derby against Hibs at Easter Road while the Bhoys' trip to Tannadice has been postponed for now.
On day one of the new Division One campaign, Dunfermline, Airdrie, Partick and Raith were winners. In Division Two, Brechin and Queen of the South made the perfect start.
The Capital One Cup - previously the Carling Cup and traditionally the League Cup - all the Championship clubs involved in round one progressed; but not all as easily as Leeds' 4-0 victors over Shrewsbury!
Barnsley, Hull, Watford and Wolves were all forced into extra-time - by Rochdale, Rotherham, Wycombe and Aldershot - before prevailing. The Shots even took Wolves to penalties at Molineux.
Sheffield United's penalties exit to Burton was the afternoon's shock.
