Rangers 3 – Dundee United 3 (Scottish Cup, March 14, 2010) Ibrox fell silent midway through the first half when Whittaker’s lazy pass to Wilson was cut out by Jon Daly, forward Andes Shala collected the ball and after racing into the box he slipped his shot past keeper McGregor. Rangers equalised in controversial circumstances after Miller tumbled as he rounded keeper Pernis (although replays confirmed goalie touched the ball) and from the resultant spot-kick Kris Boyd scored his 26th goal of the season. On the stroke of halftime Kris Boyd won Rangers’ second penalty of the half and the striker dusted himself down to net his 27th goal of the campaign. Minutes after the restart Rangers opened up a 2-goal lead as Davies strode upfield before laying the ball off to Nacho Novo on the right and the striker drilled in number three. Dundee Utd got themselves back into the cup tie in the 63rd minute when Morgaro Gomis powerful strike was headed into his own net by Steven Whittaker as he attempted to head clear. Four minutes from time United grabbed an equaliser when Mihael Kovacevic nodded home his first goal of the season after Shala had hit the bar from a corner.
