Watch: Atrocious Offside Trap Gifts Rangers The Easiest Of Goals

Welcoming top-of-the-table Hearts to Ibrox in this afternoon's showpiece Scottish Premiership tie, Steven Gerrard's Rangers opened the scoring with one of the strangest goals you'll see.

Into only the 2nd minute of the match, James Tavernier stood over a free-kick some distance from the Hearts goal.

Looking set to be a fairly traditional swinging cross into the box, no sooner had the ball been hit than the line of Hearts defenders holding the line made a mad dash forward.

Seeking to catch a whole host of Rangers players in their offside trap, the memo didn't seem to make its way through to all the Hearts players in question.

With the majority of players dashing out impressively, you can just make out the man standing to the extreme right of the screen getting out of the blocks a little too sluggishly.

Leaving a number of Rangers players onside and in the Hearts box unmarked, even they looked they couldn't quite believe what had happened. With the ball breaking to Ryan Kent, Rangers took the lead and have since built upon this fortuitous start impressively.
