Liverpool BEATS Rangers 4-0

Youngster David Ngog guided Liverpool to a 4-0 win over a Glasgow Rangers side at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon

The other goal scorers were Fernando Torres, Xabi Alonso and Yossi Benayoun. After two boring pre-season matches, finally we got to see some thrilling action.
Keane and Torres partnered up top for just about 45 minutes, but both of them showed good technique and were also aware of each other to link up well on several occasions.
On 23 minutes, Liverpool took the lead as Damien Plessis’ long-distance hit was spilled by ‘Gers keeper Allan McGregor with Torres on there to tap home his first strike of pre-season.
Diego Cavalieri was also impressive at the other end would two good stops. However, he was outdone by Nacho Novo, who went round him, only for left back Andrea Dossena to clear of the line.
Liverpool made five changes at the break with Carragher, Torres, Skrtel, Arbeloa and Plessis coming off and Hyypia, Ngog, Alonso, Darby and Agger entering.
Just when Rangers were about to score, Ngog scored a cracker. The French youngster took made it 2-0 on 56 minutes, turning his man one way and the other to score a brilliant goal.
With that, the Reds made some more changes with Insua, Nemeth, Spearing replacing Gerrard, Kuyt and Keane.
On 58 minutes, Insua burst down the left, finding Nemeth whose shot was blocked, and Benayoun was there at the back post to score.
Then it became 4-0 after Alonso converted a penalty on the 70th, when Nemeth was brough down by Christian Dailly.
