Despite going 1 up from a Nikica Jelavic goal in the 7th minute (Congratulations to Stuart Barr, winner of the AED300 prize for the Golden Goal) Rangers were never really able to compete with a very strong Chelsea team and went down to a 3-1 defeat at Ibrox yesterday. It was a bit strange watching the game in a bar with no alcohol due to Ramadan, but we had a few guests in from the Dubai Chelsea supporters club which was great and when the bar did open at 8pm the beer was well worth waiting for.

It’s back to the SPL next Saturday with The Champions away to Inverness, the match kicks-off at 3.45pm local time and Jo The Tim tells me that Centre Circle will open at 3.30pm  for the match to be shown live – there will of course be no alcohol served until 8pm.
