Arsenal on Saturday failed to beat Rangers in their second pre-season friendly tie at Ibrox.

Rangers took the lead in the first half through a header from Nigerian defender Leon Balogun following a brilliant delivery from James Tavernier.

Arsenal, however, levelled through new signing Nuno Tavares after he capatilised on a Tavernier’s mistake.

Jermain Defoe was a casualty for Rangers as he came off with a muscle injury in the first half of the encounter.

Rangers were under pressure for large parts of the second half but they took the lead again from another set piece.

Glenn Middleton delivered a brilliant ball into Arsenal box that was met by the head of Cedric Itten who powered the ball into the back of the net to give Steven Gerrard’s men a 2-1 lead.

But Eddie Nketiah levelled for Mikel Arteta’s men on the 83rd minute after capatilising on a mistake from Middleton as the game eventually ended 2-2 after normal time.

Recall that Arsenal had a few days ago lost 2-1 to Hibernian.
