Rangers vs.Dundee United

Congrats to Kris Boyd.

But was a second record set? Was this also the best score by a team down to ten men?

I suppose it is possible there have been games when one side has been winning by a barrowload and had a man sent off near the end.

Two records he can claim:

First player to score five goals in a single game in the Premier Division/SPL on two occasions.

First player to score five goals in a single Premier/SPL game for two different clubs.

I'm sure leatherstocking will correct me if I'm wrong but I make that five times a player has scored five goals in a Premier/SPL game and on three of those occasions the team on the receiving end has been Dundee United - Marco Negri for Rangers Aug 23rd 1997, Kris Boyd for Kilmarnock v Dundee United Sep 25th 2004 (should have been six) & again for Rangers v Dundee United Dec 30th 2009.

The others are Paul Sturrock for Dundee United v Morton Nov 17th 1984 & Kenny Miller for Rangers v St Mirren Nov 4th 2000.

I once played a Sunday league match against the Haymakers - hardest pub team in Cambridge - we didn't get in their way too much and before long they were 8-0 up. Two of their forwards had a swedge at each other over a missed chance and the ref sent both of them off. Finished 10-2.

Does that count?

Is that not a bit like claiming to be the sanest person in Broadmoor?

I've just been told that they are. Mind you, that was by my Oxford-born wife.

Was at a Airdrieonians v Meadowbank game (March 85), it ended up 5-3 to Meadowbank I'm sure Airdrie were winning at the time when Meadowbank got a couple of players sent off and they still went on to win the match, anyone got more details on that match ?
