Match report
This historic match was switched from Inverness by the SFA for policing reasons. 5000 people travelled from Inverness and they saw their team beaten but certainly not humiliated.

It took 15 minutes for Rangers to go in front - Van Vossen slid the ball in the box towards Laudrup and Brian Thomsons attempted clearance shot past Jim Calder.

By half time Rangers were effectively through to the semi-final after Paul Gascoigne made it 2-0 in 35 minutes - he side stepped Iain MacArthurs challenge and flighted the ball into the top corner from 20 yards.

Seven minutes into the second half Gascoigne made it 3-0 when he headed home from the back post after a perfect Laudrup cross. In scoring the goal Gascoigne elbowed away team mate Ally McCoist who needed treatment before continuing.

Caley Thistle were determined to fight and they did have chances of consolation goals. The best chance came when Brian Thomson and Charlie Christie combined to set up Iain Stewart - Stewart beat David Robertson and in trying to bend the ball past Goram he put it wide. Mike Teasdale and John Scott brought out saves from Andy Goram and the consolation goal was not to be.

In the end Rangers were clear winners but the Inverness side went home with their pride well preserved. Jersey swapping followed the final whistle and the Caley Thistle players took home souvenirs as well as memories. A great day out for all connected with the club and a respectable result.
