STOKE boss Gudjon Thordarson claimed his side were robbed of a goal.

After Andy Thomson scored the game's only goal, City's Peter Thorne found the net from 12 yards but was denied an equaliser for an apparent hand ball. Thordarson raged: 'The ref said there was a hand ball. He was probably the only person on the pitch that saw it.'

Rangers dominated the first half but Stoke could easily have snatched an equaliser near the end when defender Aziz Ben-Askar cleared the ball off the line in the middle of a goalmouth scramble.
