Trailing 1-0 and reduced to ten men from the 41st minute, the visiting side had hardly been out of their own penalty box for the second half.

But with three minutes remaining, Danny Moore floated his free-kick into the crowded penalty box with striker Stuart Lesley attacking the ball in the air.

Alexander looked to have made a save but he somehow juggled the ball over his line and into the net.

"I have not spoken to Neil," said Rangers boss Ally McCoist after the match.

"I have seen the goal a good few times on the monitor and it is a mistake, but he is big enough to recover from it. Neil knows he made a mistake but he will deal with it."
