Video: Rangers sunk by hero keeper Zander Clark who nets 122nd minute equalising header before saving two in shootout win

Posted by

St Johnstone goalkeeper Zander Clark scored a 122nd minute equaliser against Rangers to send their Scottish Cup quarter-final clash to a penalty shootout.

With Rangers having scored an 117th minute opening goal, it looked as though the Scottish champions were to be progressing through to the semi-finals of the competition, at the expense of St Johnstone.

However, goalkeeper Zander Clark had other ideas.

With St Johnstone having won a corner in the 122nd minute of the game, Clark made his way into the Rangers penalty area, setting the stage for a fairytale story to unfold before our eyes at Ibrox.

Clark rose like a salmon, unchallenged in the heart of the Rangers box, with his heading being diverted into the back of the net to send the game to a penalty shootout. Have you ever seen scenes quite like it?
