ITV News spoke to Annan fans before the game.

Rangers struggled to exert their authority over Annan and at full-time the score was 0-0. It was met with delight by Annan fans and disappointment by Rangers fans.

Dumfries and Galloway police deployed 20 officers in the ground but described both Rangers and Annan fans as "well behaved and in good spirits".

Only one arrest was made, a 49 year old male for possession of alcohol within a football ground.

Several other persons will be reported for other minor offences including sectarian singing and two counts of letting off a smoke flare.

No arrests were made in the town.
