Thomson dejected despite late leveller

Kevin Thomson grabbed a last-gasp draw against Dundee United in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League last night - then declared the result as two points dropped for Rangers.

United must have thought the win was in the bag as the clash at Ibrox headed into injury-time, with a Scott Robertson strike looking like being the decisive goal.

But despite his late equaliser Thomson insisted: "It's definitely two points dropped because we should always be winning games at Ibrox."

Goals from Steven Davis and Sasa Papac and a Francesco Sandaza double for the visitors had already ensured an entertaining first half.

A draw was not enough to move level with Celtic at the top of SPL and the midfielder admitted his celebrations were tempered with some disappointment at not claiming maximum points.

Thomson added: "It felt as though we were pushing and probing as hard as we possibly could, we had chances and a lot of times we had the ball in the box and just couldn't get it in the net.

"But thankfully it came in the end."

Rangers netted five goals in 45 minutes against Inverness on Saturday and Thomson believes better finishing could have resulted in a similar goal spree against United.

"The boys midfield to front created a lot of chances and we could have scored five or six goals if we had taken those chances," he said.

"We are a bit disappointed and defensively we could have done better. The three goals we conceded were poor so as a team we are disappointed about that. But the boys worked hard, stuck at it and got what we deserved."
