Rangers hold Man U to draw

Manchester - Manchester United were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw by Rangers in their opening Champions League Group C match at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

The three-times European champions, who made 10 changes from the team which drew 3-3 with Everton in the Premier League on Saturday, dominated possession but lacked the creativity to break down the massed Scottish defence.

United made few clear-cut chances, midfielder Darron Gibson going closest to breaking the deadlock with a fizzing 20m shot which flew just past the post.

The hosts' rhythm was disrupted when Ecuador winger Antonio Valencia suffered a serious-looking ankle injury and England striker Wayne Rooney, recalled after missing the Everton game following his personal problems, had a quiet match.
