A goal by Ross Callachan in 94 Minute brought Hamilton Academical a surprising draw against the Rangers of the Scottish Premier League

An own goal by Brian Easton looked like it would earn Rangers the points after visiting goalkeeper Allan McGregor made a series of saves

Callachan, Bruce Anderson and Scott McMann were all defeated in an uncomfortable 90 minutes for Rangers

However, replays indicated that the Hamilton midfielder’s efforts were off target and the ball was wrapped after McGregor’s hit

That means Rangers – who remain unbeaten in the league – are now 21 points ahead at the summit

Hamilton stays down, but has narrowed the gap to penultimate Ross County to three points and two games in hand

A whole table and 56 points may have separated the two, but Hamilton did as well as they did against the Premiership leaders

Ianis Hagi and Joe Aribo went to great lengths for Rangers from afar, and Connor Goldson saved a header but that was as close as Steven Gerrard’s side were in a lackluster first-half

The hosts had the best chance instead. Anderson played a one-two with Marios Ogkmpoe and cut a deflected shot just wide. Then McGregor had to be vigilant when Anderson – on loan from Aberdeen – robbed Filip Helander on the edge of the box

James Tavernier released a free kick just before half-time and Ryan Kent hit the side-netting shortly after as the Rangers tried to shift up a gear

But then McGregor had to make a big double save to keep Hamilton out, and fight McMann and Callachan’s efforts out of the area

Ryan Jack’s introduction helped the Rangers gain a better foothold in midfield, and Kent’s low ride through a build-up of bodies skimmed the far post

But the home side came back Callachan’s free kick was pushed away by McGregor before the Rangers broke the impasse at the other end when Borna Barisic’s cross ricocheted off Easton from the right

It looked like it would be a heartache for the relegation fighters, but in stoppage time McGregor scratched off an Anderson header and Callachan was the first to rebound home to shoot home

With such a nice lead at the top of the Premier League, Rangers can afford a day off, but four of their last seven games have been won by a single goal and they have lost points on two points

They have recently started to look more vulnerable and while that probably won’t hurt their title bid, Gerrard could face the upcoming Europa League draw with Royal Antwerp

Hamilton was nine minutes to go in the middle of the week – before losing – but paid the price for missed opportunities They were ready to face the Rangers and their late goal marks a crucial point before a difficult game

Three of their next four games are against the top 6 opponents, and their next four games are away from home as they struggle for survival

Brian Rice, Hamilton Academical head coach: “I’m proud, not just of the result, but also of the way the game was played. I thought the guys were absolutely brilliant

“The message was to start the game as we meant it to. They showed faith in one another”

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard: “I’m really relieved to leave this game with a point. We almost ugly won, got a bang, but we have to be better. We just weren’t in the races

There is so much for me and for me too. Maybe I left too much quality and personality on the sidelines because we looked better when the submarines came “

Hamilton travels to Livingston on Wednesday (6:00 p.m. GMT) while the Rangers are next in action on Saturday when they host Kilmarnock (3:00 p.m.)
