Rangers edge spirited Motherwell thanks to Cyriel Dessers goal


Super Eagles striker Cyriel Dessers scored the the only goal of the game in Rangers 1-0 win over Motherwell at Ibrox Stadium, Reelradio.com.ng reports.

Michael Beale’s side, who were greeted by a chorus boos at the final whistle, started the game lethargically but took the lead in fortunate circumstances when Rabbi Matondo’s arrowed shot cannoned off Dessers as he attempted to move out of the way in the 24th minute.

The cruel deflection wrong-footed Liam Kelly, for what turned out to be the only goal of an otherwise uninspiring afternoon, where the Gers looked jaded from their midweek European exploits against Real Betis.

Motherwell poured forward in the second period and went close on numerous occasions as Blair Spittal was twice denied by goal-line clearances from James Tavernier and Connor Goldson.

The Gers went on an attack, pouring numbers forward. Dessers helped with the build-up and went to position himself in the box. Then, Rabbi Matondo struck a wicked shot, but Dessers just got a touch to it to deflect the ball into the net for his first Premiership goal.

That was all that was needed as Rangers ran out 1-0 winners. Dessers saw 67 minutes of action, and was replaced by Ryan Jack.

The Super Eagles star would look to build on his goal.
