Adam Millington


With this header, Rangers sealed the victory.

Another good workout for both sides, but it is Steven Gerrard's Rangers who get the win.
After a beautiful delivery from the corner by Andy Halliday, Katic gets his head on it to make it 1-0
10 Minutes Remaining and still all level
Neither side have really troubled the other, and it does not luck as if anybody will manage to put the ball in the back of the net
Kamara Denied by Roos
Kelle Roos performs an amazing two-handed save after a shot from around 25 yards out from Kamara in the 74th minute
Substitution for Rangers
Alfredo Morelos has replaced striker Jermain Defoe
Multiple Substitutions For Derby
Ikechi Anya and Morgan Whittaker replace Mason Bennett and Florian Jozefzoon
Still a stalemate
As we approach the 70th minute mark, neither side have yet been able to alter the scoreline. Both have had good opportunities, but Rangers have had the vast majority
Four Substitutions for Rangers
Goldson, Halliday, Polster, Flanagan and Aribo come on to replace Tavernier, Helander, Davis, Arfield and Barisic
Keogh Back Up
After around two minutes on the floor, the defender is back on his feet
Injury Possibilty For Keogh
It seems as if Keogh has taken a knock to his face, and he is now on the floor
Substitution for Rangers
Jordan Jones is coming off for Rangers to be replaced by Ojo
Derby stronger
Derby have been so much better than in the last half here at Ibrox, however they still leave a lot to desire for Rams' fans.
Scuffle between Lawrence and Tavernier
An off the ball incident has just occurred between Tavernier and Tom Lawrence after the Derby man swiped at the Rangers' right back's legs. Both received a talking to from the referee.
Docherty fires wide
After a run forward from the Gers, the ball fell to Docherty who sliced it wide from what should have been a pretty easy shot.
Rams unable to punish Rangers
Derby couldn't make anything from the corner, and the ball ends up behind the goal
Corner for the Rams
Derby have earned a corner within the first 30 seconds
Second Half Starts
Both sides are out now, and the second half has just started. Both sides are unchanged after the break
HT: Rangers 0 - 0 Derby County
We enter half time at Ibrox without a goal for either side. Keogh and Roos have carried Derby County this half
Keogh putting everything on the line
Defender Richard Keogh seems to block every single shot from Rangers, getting himself down to the floor whenever possible no matter the risk
Roos Derby's Saviour So Far
Without Kelle Roos, Derby county would without a doubt by down by at least one goal. The Dutch keeper has played out of his skin in this first half
Great save from Roos as Hellander's volley curls towards the top of the net but is just tipped over
Derby hanging on here
Rangers' high pressing football has been unrivaled by Derby, with them having many opportunities to score
How have Rangers not scored?
Rangers have just had multiple shots on targets, and Defoe should have buried one. I can't believe the ball has somehow stayed out of the net there
Rams struggling
After starting well, Derby have found it difficult to make any impact on the game and have been overran by Rangers
Brilliant Save From Roos
Roos is keeping Derby in the game at the moment, and after many fast passes around the box, the ball fell to Jermaine Defoe who played a beautiful strike that was saved by keeper Roos at terrific speed.
Wasted Gers Opportunity
Greg Docherty was three on two with the Derby defence, but chose to play the shot from the edge of the box instead of lay the ball off. It ended up an easy save for Roos
Yet to find the breakthrough at Ibrox
Neither side have been able to break the deadlock so far, and the scores still sit tied 25'
Docherty hits target
After some good build up from Tavernier and Arfield, Docherty's side footed shot from the edge  of the box is saved by the Derby keeper
Gers Missing Edmundson
Rangers really seem to be missing their new centre-back in today's game. George Edmundson's long balls across the field could really break apart a compact derby side here
Off the pitch entertainment
It may not have been the best on the pitch so far, but the Derby cameraman has just started the bounce to the delight of the Rams' fans
We remain goalless as we enter the twelfth minute, with the Derby fans being the main attraction so far
Wasted opportunity for Rangers
The Glasgow side have missed two corners in a row, struggling to put them anywhere near their team.
Another corner
After a weak first effort, Rangers have managed to draw another corner
Corner Rangers
Barisic's cross has deflected behind the goal for a corner for Rangers
Derby set up for counter
Derby seem to be sitting off, away from the Rangers side today to try and beat their opposition on the break and score on the counter
Jones stops the Derby attack, and allows Rangers to gain possesion and push forward with the counter
Derby just came close to attacking the Gers net, only for James Tavernier to get the ball clear.
Derby Start Strong
With the National Anthem bellowing out from the stands, Derby have started well, playing some brilliant passing football on the deck
Kick Off!
Martin Waghorn has got us underway at Ibrox
The teams are now out!
Both sides have now walked out onto the pitch, with the famous 'Simply The Best' belting out through the speakers.
Derby travel in numbers
The away end at Ibrox today is as full as it has been for most SPFL games, with a very large number of Rams' fans venturing up from the East Midlands
Helander makes debut
New Rangers signing Filip Helander makes his debut for the Gers today, after joining the club from Bologna this summer
Today's referee is Kevin Clancy. He has officiated three games so far this pre-season ans has handed out twelve yellow cards and one red, most recently in Thursday's match between Honved and Uni Craiova

Graeme Shinnie back at Ibrox
Shinnie spent four years with Aberdeen and as his contract expired he was strongly linked with a move to Rangers. However, Derby came in and grabbed his signature so he will now get the chance to play for Derby at Ibrox instead of the red-shirt of Aberdeen or the light blue shirt of Rangers. 
Derby lineup a clue for Huddersfield?
With this being Derby's last preseason game, it's likely that Cocu will use it to blood his preferred eleven for next weeks trip to Huddersfield. Having taken over this summer, he will have used the friendlies to get an idea of what his players can do and he will now want to see what he believes is his best eleven in action together. 
Rotation for Rangers?
With the Europa League tie on Thursday night, Rangers will probably make a number of changes for this game. Anyone who didn't feature in the home game against Progres will probably be given the opportunity to get some minutes into their legs so they are ready to go if called upon on Thursday night  or next Sunday. 
Second meeting
This is the second time these teams have met in a preseason friendly. Back in August 2014, they met at Pride Park with Derby winning 2-0 on that occasion. 
Final friendlies
This game will be the last friendly for both sides as they start their respective league campaigns next weekend. Rangers will play the second leg of their Europa League tie against Progres in Luxembourg on Thursday before travelling to take on Kilmarnock at lunchtime next Sunday. 

Derby have no midweek commitments but are also on the road as they take on relegated, Huddersfield Town next Monday night. 
Gerrard v Lampard
When this friendly was first organised many will have expected it to be a reunion of England's central midfield for many years with Steven Gerrard in charge of Rangers and Frank Lampard in charge of Derby. However, Lampard has since got the Chelsea job and it will be Philip Cocu in the visitors' dugout. 
Derby in preseason
Derby's season ended late as they made it all the way to Wembley but lost to Aston Villa in the playoff final. After a short break, the players were back in training and played two friendlies in Florida. They beat local side, Sarasota Metropolis 2-0 and Bristol City 2-1 before returning to England. Burton Albion were beaten 5-2 before Girona handed them their only defeat on Thursday when they won 2-0 at Pride Park. 
Friendly action
As well as their competitive games, Rangers have also played three friendlies at Ibrox on each of the last three Sundays. Oxford United were defeated 5-0 three weeks and Marseille were beaten 4-0 two weeks ago. Last Sunday was a meeting with another Championship club, Blackburn Rovers. The game finished 1-1. 
Rangers' competitive season underway
Rangers have already played three competitive games this season as they aim to reach the group stages of the Europa League. They beat St Joseph's of Gibraltar 10-0 on aggregate before beating Progres Niederkorn of Luxembourg 2-0 at Ibrox in the first leg of their 2nd Qualifying Round tie on Thursday night.
