GLASGOW RANGERS 2-0 CHELSEA

Novo 85mins
Sebo 88mins

88mins: GOAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL

Rangers 2-0, Sebo

85mins: GOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLL

Rangers 1-0 Chelsea - Nacho Novo

84mins: Late Rangers pressure. Hilario punches away, Novo completely misses and Sebo claims for a penalty, not given. At the other end Chelsea break and Frank hits a shot which Carroll saves easily.

82mins: Frank finds Sinclair on the left, he jinks and jinks and Cole overlaps. Cole puts a cross in - headed away. Rangers sub Burke on for Adams

TEN MINUTES TO GO

79mins: Nice passing from Chelsea ends with a shot from Pizarro which deflected for a corner. Carroll punches the corner away but the return cross from Shaunie goes over.

76mins: Great cross from Shaunie plum onto Pizarro's head which went wide, but the effort was ruled offside.

75mins: Jose is not looking pleased!!!!!

74mins: Sinclair on Chelsea's left wins a corner and Shaunie returns after receiving treatment. Rangers' Novo getting lots of room down Chelsea's left.

72mins: TV Pics showing Jose gesturing everyone forward. Shaunie in a bit of trouble after a knee to knee collision. OUCH!!!

71mins Chelsea sub. Scott Sinclair on for Didier Drogba. Great last couple of minutes of action.

70mins: Pizzaro shoots and cleared off the line. Mikel has a shot saved by Carroll, Carroll fumbles and the loose ball is cleared. Lampard was cut down but no penalty given. Straight down the other end, Ashley Cole defends well from a Ferguson shot. Corner to Rangers. Hilario gathers well.

65mins: Sidwell tries a slide rule pass to Pizarro, but just about cut out by Rangers. Sebo misses a glorious opportunity to put Rangers 1-0 up, but he scuffs his shot way past the post.

64mins: JT booked and could have been a red had it not been a friendly!!!

62mins: Rangers sub. McCulloch off, Sebo on. Chelsea sub Johnson off, A Cole on

60mins: Shaunie is buzzing again, playing down Chelsea's right.

57mins: Still 0-0

55mins: Wright-Phillips has a shot from 30 yards, hits Drogba. Roy Carroll is sub in goal for Rangers. Nacho Novo also on.

54mins: Match clock returns. Happy Days!!!

Unfortunately the clock has been lost by the TV company. Rangers have had one break since the second half started but it was lceared comfortably by Chelsea. Looks as if Haim has moved to left back, Jonno to right and Mikel is in the holding role and he is holding very well

48mins: Its all Chelsea at the start of the second-half

Chelsea subs: Hilario on, Mikel On, Carvalho on, Wright-Phillips on, Pizarro on.

Off: Cech, Diarra, Joe Cole, Sheva, Malouda

Second-Half off and running

HALF-TIME SCORE

RANGERS 0-0 CHELSEA

43mins: The pace has dropped. Both teams settling for 0-0 half-time score. Malouda cracks one in from 20 yards which fizzes past the far post.

Five minutes until half-time. Still 0-0

39mins: Corner to Chelsea after a fast moving counterattack. Came to nothing. Chelsea still in possession.

37mins: Wonderful possession from Chelsea, sees Malouda break on the right, crossing the ball onto Drogba's head and the header sails just wide.

35mins: Malouda gets a yellow card for his first tackle. Taking revenge for a couple of tackles on him me thinks.

32mins: Sidwell gets a talking to after a tough tackle. Close offside call that saves Chelsea from possibly going 1-0 down.

30mins: Shame Diarra's shot didn't match his approach play. The shot would have graced Murrayfield. Still 0-0

28mins: Great defensive play for Didier to stop McCulloch getting a clear head on goal. Successive corners for Rangers and Dids heads away again.

27mins: Rangers are tackling tough. McCulloch the latest culprit on Malouda again. Getting a bit fiesty.

25mins First 'tough' challenge of the game. Ferguson on Malouda. Drogba gets involved. From the free-kick Lampard scuffs a shot which was deflected for a corner. The corner took Rangers an age to clear.

23mins: Wasted free-kick by Rangers. Still 0-0

21mins: Joey is looking sharp. Was tugged back by Ferguson on a surging run. The free-kick came to nothing. Sheva is fighting for all is worth and Diarra looks extremely comfortable a right-back.

18mins: still 0-0

16mins: Although chances have been scarce. The football is open and I will be very surprised if this game ends 0-0.

14mins Wonderful 30 yd chip ball from Joey from the centre of midfield sees Rangers struggle to defend but they finally clear.

13mins Still 0-0

11mins Chelsea having lots of possession but no cutting edge at the moment. Drogba was unlucky trying to feed the ball through to Sheva.

9mins Seems that Malouda is out on the left with Joe Cole being given a free role. Frank with licence to go foward and Sidwell playing defensive, even thogh he had the first shot.

7mins 1st corner of the game to Chelsea. Nice work from Malouda wins Chelsea another corner

5mins Rangers are enjoying lots of pressure down both flanks. They are a fair turn of pace

3:30mins Cech saves well from a Kris Boyd break (Boyd was Rangers top scorer last season)

3mins Whipped in cross by Rangers - hits the side netting. Capacity crowd of 51,000

Chelsea are playing in the wonderful yellow shirts again
