Champions-elect Rangers held by 10-man United

Rangers may have to wait longer than they were anticipating to wrap up the Scottish Premier League football title after being held to a 0-0 draw by 10-man Dundee United.

If Walter Smith's team had beaten United they would have been able to claim the championship with another victory over Hearts on the weekend, but they now need Celtic to drop points against Hibernian for that to happen.

The Ibrox club are 11 points clear of their Glasgow rivals and are certain to retain the title, but they will be disappointed not to have killed off United at Tannadice after Mihael Kovacevic's second half dismissal.
