Tougher tests for Glasgow giants
Monday 23 September 1996
Rangers who lost their opening Champions' League match against Grasshoppers know that victory against Auxerre at Ibrox is essential to get them back into contention on Group A. Four goals against Kilmarnock on Saturday might indicate Rangers are in good form, but Grasshoppers dispelled the illusion two weeks ago.
Paul Gascoigne and Peter van Vossen shared the goals on Saturday, the Dutchman doing so despite flu symptoms. He will hope to recover for Wednesday. Ally McCoist is doubtful with a calf strain.
Celtic blasted five past Dunfermline ahead of their Uefa Cup meeting with Hamburg. But, before the first leg, which they lost 2-0, Tommy Burns's side had rattled five past Hibernian. Paolo Di Canio and Pierre van Hooijdonk scored two apiece with Jorge Cadete the other scorer giving rise to hopes of an historic comeback in Hamburg. However, former Hamburg star Gunter Netzer said at the weekend that Celtic have lost touch with European football.
Aberdeen, who visit Barry Town on Tuesday, lost 2-0 to Hibernian, despite dominating. The victory gives some breathing space to Hibernian manager Alex Miller. Tommy McLean had a difficult return to Raith Rovers as his new side Dundee United lost 3-2.
