Rangers loss to Kilmarnock last Saturday, the first home league defeat of the season and their second consecutive setback at Ibrox, following their elimination from the Scottish Cup by Dundee United and all eyes are on securing second place in the SPL and Champions League football next season as Ally McCoist's side travel to Inverness in the early kick off on Sunday.
“Last week was a disappointment, no doubt about that. I haven’t wanted to win a game as much in a long time,” said McCoist, whose players meet Caley Thistle in tomorrow’s televised lunchtime fixture in the Highland capital. “It seemed a little bit flat in the first half.
“I’m not criticising the officials but if you watch back the offside decision against us it’s tight and I thought the other goal should have stood – but listen, sometimes you get them and sometimes you don’t.
“The big disappointment was not winning the game because we wanted to do it for everybody. We have an opportunity now to win at Inverness and keep establishing ourselves in second place.”
This week saw no reduction in developments affecting the Gers off the field. The club’s administrators met the former owner, Sir David Murray, and an ex-director, Paul Murray, to discuss a variety of topics as police began their examination of documents relating to the financing of his takeover.
The business of a football club is football and it is clear that the continued headlines and revelations about Craig Whyte and his practices has had an effect on the team.
