Match Recap

James Tavernier had a penalty saved as Rangers (and Killie) had to settle for a goalless Scottish Cup draw at Rugby Park.

Kirk Broadfoot (right) conceded the spot kick when he handled Scott Arfield's shot, but Killie goalkeeper Dan Bachmann deflected it clear.

Joe Worrall headed wide from close range and Jermain Defoe drove a shot across goal as Rangers dominated the second half.

Youssouf Mulumbu also had an effort cleared off the line for Kilmarnock.

The two sides will have to do it all again at Ibrox on Wednesday, 20 February for a place in the quarter-finals.

The result means Steve Clarke has only lost two of his eight games as Kilmarnock manager against Rangers.

It's now been 81 years since Killie last beat Rangers in the Scottish Cup. April 1938, when Jimmy McGrory was manager. That match was at Ibrox too. What chance of history repeating itself?

Comments

Steve Clarke:  "It was pretty even, two good teams who went at it from the first minute until the last, fully committed. You can see that any time we come up against the big teams, we can give them a game. I think the first goal would have been crucial tonight, if we would have got that then it might have been a different story."
On the prospect of the replay at Ibrox: "We don't go with any fear." And on the penalty award? "He (Kirk Broadfoot) didn't mean to handle it but he's fallen on the ball, so you can't have big complaints."
