Scottish Premiership giants Rangers have surprisingly been kicked out of the Scottish League Cup this season at the quarterfinal stage after they were beaten by St. Mirren. Rangers were the overwhelming favourites to advance to the semi-finals of the Scottish League Cup ahead of their hosts who had other ideas. St. Mirren scored in added time to dump the Scottish Premiership leaders out of the competition. Rangers and hosts St. Mirren shared five goals as the former ended up on the wrong side of the thriller.

Irish footballer Conor McCarthy was the recipient of the winning goal thereby leading St. Mirren to the last four of the competition as a result of that goal. His goal came shortly after experienced cum veteran midfielder Steven Davis came off the bench to score the equalizer for Steven Gerrard’s team. His goal came five minutes from time, and it counted for nothing in the end after his team conceded another goal in added time to exit the competition.

Rangers have themselves to blame after they took the lead as early as the seventh minute before they allowed their hosts to take the initiative courtesy the pair of goals from Jamie McGrath either side of the break. He scored from the penalty spot on 40 minutes to level proceedings for St. Mirren and then went on to complete his brace eight minutes into the second half.
Steven Davis scored the second goal for Rangers before the aforementioned McCarthy decided the game in favour of St. Mirren with his added time as he also ended the long unbeaten run of Rangers. The Scottish Premiership club had not lost a game since the Europa League round of 16 loss to German Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen in August. They had gone 26 games without a single loss until St. Mirren happened on Wednesday.
