    Time:90'
    • Rangers
    • Motherwell
    • 90+2' And there goes the final whistle! What a comeback from Motherwell! Alexander's still furious about the penalty, which was dubious at best, and a cynical dive at worst! Fantastic response from Motherwell though, who came so close to winning a European place today!
    • 90+1' GOAL MOTHERWELL!! 3-3! JUTKIEWICZ PUTS THE PENALTY AWAY!
    • 90+1' PENALTY!! Murphy is sent clear of the defence, and Alexander comes off his line. Murphy goes down, and the referee blows! Alexander's furious, and replays show little to no contact!
    • 89' GOAL!! Jennings forces another stunning save from Alexander, but gets the rebound back from an awful pass by man of the match Weir, and Jennings has the easiest of headers into an empty net! Is it too late though?
    • 88' Motherwell break dangerously, but as soon as the ball enters the area there's a wall of blue in the way. Hibs will be going to Europe today!
    • 86' Rangers are celebrating already! There's a carnival atmosphere at Ibrox, with the trophy presentation inching ever closer
    • 82' Naismith almost releases Stevie Smith, but the defence does just enough. Motherwell counter and Murphy gets through to head it in! NO! WONDERFUL SAVE! Alexander makes another fantastic save to deny Murphy from a couple of yards out!
    • 76' Two-goal Lafferty is going off for Rangers, with Steven Smith coming on. Time's running out for Motherwell, who concede a sloppy freekick right on the edge of their area
    • 73' And Ruddy's called into action again! Naismith breaks free on the right, but fires his shot straight at the Motherwell keeper, who parries clear
    • 69' MAKE THAT THREE! GOAL RANGERS!! Lafferty steals in at the far post to tap in Nacho Novo's perfect pass across the face of goal! Motherwell have it all to do again
    • 65' Rangers are trying to get control of the game back in the middle of the park, but Motherwell are clearly in the ascendancy here. They'll need a couple more goals if Hibs stay in front at Dundee...
    • 62' CHANCE FOR MOTHERWELL! Rangers are looking dodgy at the back now, and Jutkiewicz was through on goal before a fantastic smothering save by Alexander too keep the hosts in the lead! Motherwell are pushing hard for an equaliser!
    • 58' And Rangers are straight back at Motherwell, with Boyd firing into Ruddy from two yards out! Fantastic save from Ruddy, not sure how much he knew about it though!
    • 58' Kenny Miller is still struggling, and will be replaced by Ibrox-favourite Nacho Novo
    • 52' Perfect response from Motherwell, who look a different side from the first half! Kenny Miller, meanwhile, has pulled up slightly for the hosts
    • 50' GOAL! MOTHERWELL ARE BACK IN IT! Jim O'Brien jinked into a shooting position, before laying off to substitute Jamie Murphy, who strokes it beyond a flailing Alexander's right hand!
    • 45' Motherwell have an early freekick, which Hateley takes, AND COKE GETS A HEAD ON! JUST WIDE! What a chance for Motherwell, but Gile's Coke's header bounced just wide of the right stick
    • 45' We're back underway at Ibrox! Motherwell need to score the next goal, and fast!
    • 45' Half-time at Rangers, and Motherwell well and truly beaten in the first half!
    • 44' Good football from Rangers, with swift, incisive passing in the middle of the park opening up space for Miller to shoot! Over the bar, but fine build-up play from the Champions
    • 40' GOAL!! RANGERS GO 2-0 UP! Lafferty makes up for his earlier howler, connecting with Naismith's cross with the studs of his boots, getting just enough on the ball for it to sneak past Ruddy!
    • 32' Motherwell get the ball in the net! Jutkiewicz is just onside as O'Brien swings in another peach of a cross from the right. Jutkiewicz stabs it in, but the flag's up!
    • 27' WONDERFUL SAVE! Miller hits the ball sweet with his left to the right post, and Ruddy turns the ball around the post with a stunning save. How Rangers are still only on one...
    • 26' Rangers twisting the screw now, Papac picks out Miller in the box with a wonderfully weighted ball, but Miller can't bring it under control with his chest, and it's out for a goal kick
    • 24' Kenny Miller picks out Kyle Lafferty on the left! Lafferty completely miscues his left foot shot wide though. Should be 2-0
    • 20' Boyd breaks down the left, and hits it with his left! Just over the bar, but Rangers are threatening! Motehrwell counter quickly, with Jutkiewitcz heading over from 5 yards out! Great chance for Motherwell, they're not out of this yet!
    • 15' GOAL RANGERS!! Boyd holds the ball up for an eternity in the Motherwell box, before taking a touch onto his left and drilling the ball low in the left corner! Fabulous goal
    • 8' Rangers applying the pressure against Motherwell but they haven't seriously threatened to break to deadlock yet!
    • 3' Rangers applying plenty of early pressure, first Steven Whittaker firing just over the bar from range, before Kenny Miller just failing to get on the end of a low ball across the face of goal!
    • 1' We're underway at Ibrox, with the Motherwell players having given Rangers a guard of honour onto the pitch
    • - Good afternoon and welcome to our live text commentary of the final day of the 09/10 SPL season! Rangers will receive the league trophy after their match with Motherwell. The hosts haven't lost at home in 14 months, and the visitors have never won an SPL game at Ibrox! However, all they need is to match Hibs' result, and Motherwell will win themselves a Europa League berth
