Rangers vs Partick Thistle: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and team newsLive BlogUP FOR THE CUP Published: 15:30, 12 Feb 2023Updated: 19:57, 12 Feb 2023A LATE James Sands goal sent Rangers into the last eight of the Scottish Cup after the most dramatic of ties against Partick Thistle. It followed remarkable scenes when Rangers have LET Partick Thistle make it 2-2. Malik Tillman nicked the ball off of Kevin Holt to put the Light Blues ahead - but Partick were trying to boot the ball down the other end to give Gers possession back! Incredibly, Gers boss Michael Beale then ALLOWED Scott Tiffoney to tun the length of the park to equalise in quite unprecedented scenes. The drama came after James Tavernier had missed a penalty kick to put Rangers in front.
I didn’t think it was right and just to win a game of football like that. "Not at home, not against Partick Thistle. I made a lot of mistakes today in terms of team selections but that wasn’t one of them. That was the right one for football and to uphold the standards of this football club. "If you watch it back it was a big misunderstanding where Malik has got fouled, he doesn’t see what’s happened. He looks around and puts his arm up and goes and presses the ball. He’s unawares and I don’t want it hanging around his head which would be unfair to him and I don’t want to win the game that way.
" Speaking on Viaplay Sport, boss Beale added: "Listen there was a massive misunderstanding. Malik gets injured and the ball goes out of play. He didn’t see it’s been kicked out. When he stands up he thinks he has to go press because it’s the instruction he’s usually given, he’s not seen that Thistle are going to kick it back. "We scored off it and it’s controversial but this club is built on high standards and we want the best for the game.
I’ve never been involved like that before. Not everyone is going to agree but when everyone watches it back and see Malik goes down unawares, that’s what caused it. It’s unfortunate and I’d rather it didn’t happen but we dealt with it in the right way.

"The players understood it was a misunderstanding. They spoke about it on the pitch. I had to confer with my bench to make sure what I saw was correct and I think it was the right thing to do. It’s never easy that but it’s a better place for us making that decision. "It would have been unjust for us to win the game in that way.
