1875: Moses McNeil scores for Rangers who are beaten 2-1 by Third Lanark in the Scottish Cup 2nd Round Replay. The Gers had won the original tie but a Replay was ordered as they had kicked-off both halves. The Replay also carried controversy. Rangers appealed to the SFA afterwards that Third Lanark’s Goalkeeper had played in ordinary street clothes and so was indistinguishable from the crowd. They also claimed that Thirds first goal was scored with a hand and also that the Crowd had spilled onto the park causing the match to be abandoned 7 minutes from time. The appeal fell on deaf ears.
