RANGERS ARE TWO games away from returning to Scotland’s top-flight despite a 1-0 second-leg defeat to Hibernian in today’s Premiership semi-final second leg.

Stuart McCall’s side led 2-0 from the first game but lost out due to Jason Cummings injury-time goal. Still, they progress to this season’s decider and will face Motherwell in a two-legged clash – the first-leg of which is set for next Thursday, May 28th.

McCall, the former Rangers player, has enjoyed an eye-catching spell in charge since taking over from Kenny McDowall – losing twice in his 15 games so far.

Should the club get the better of Motherwell in the Premiership final, it will complete another promotion – their third in three years – after they were banished to the Third Division in 2012 due to massive financial problems.
