GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) -Rangers narrowly avoided humiliation in its first ever match outside the top tier of Scottish football, needing a 90th-minute equalizer from Andy Little to draw at Peterhead 2-2 in Division Three on Saturday.
The 54-time Scottish champions were relegated to the fourth tier, Scotland's lowest professional league, because of tax debts exceeding $30 million.
Teen Barrie McKay gave Rangers the lead in the 27th at Balmoor, watched by a capacity crowd of around 4,000. Peterhead struck back with second-half goals from Rory McAllister and Scott McLaughlin.
St. Mirren took the provisional lead of the Scottish Premier League with 4 points from two games after winning at Dundee 2-0 with goals from Kenny McLean and Sam Parkin.
Defending champion Celtic, Dundee United and Hearts are 1 point behind but have all played just one match.
Also Saturday, it was: Aberdeen 0, Ross County 0; Inverness 1, Kilmarnock 1; and Motherwell 1, St. Johnstone 1.
Hearts plays at Hibernian on Sunday.
