RANGERS didn’t make it easy for themselves as they required extra-time to reach the League Cup semi-finals.
Pedro Caixinha’s side conceded in the final minute of normal time after it looked like a solo header from Carlos Pena would separate the sides. The Mexican nodded home impressively early in the second-half but the Gers failed to capitalise on their lead despite one-on-one chances for both Alfredo Morelos and Daniel Candeias.
Kris Doolan fired Thistle level with barely a kick of the game left, leaving the Gers with half an hour to find a winner for a trip to the national stadium. Candeias scored a powerful left-footed drive within four minutes of the re-start and then Eduardo Herrera added to the tally with a near post flick to book a place in the final four.
