THE Rangers manager was talking to Rangers TV after the game.

How pleased were you with the players today? 

Very pleased as it’s the last game before the break. I’m very happy with the performance. I think it was very controlled and defensively very good. We didn’t give any chances away, only one in the last 10 or 15 minutes when we lost the ball a little bit too fast but we created a lot of chances and did well. The scoreline needed to be more with the chances but I’m happy with the win, with the zero and we go into the break in the place where we wanted to be. We can now have a rest and start over again in two weeks.

Did we see your full week’s work on the training ground today? 

Yeah. We have worked hard on the things we want to see no matter which team or system we play. Today was really good, really controlled. The movement and the passing was good. We had to change our set-up a little bit in the second half because they had a different system but the players reacted well in the change of formation so I’m really happy with that. 

In the second half you kept pushing which must have been great to see? 

Yes. We hit the post, we had some chances where we could have scored more but I think the intention was there for us to keep going, to create chances and to try and score more goals. So the intentions was there but in the end it didn’t happen for us in the second half.

How important is high energy when you are trying to break down a low block? 

It’s difficult. You have to find spaces which are very limited but when you go 1-0 up with a set-piece it’s very important. So we did. Sometimes you have to be more patient and make them run a lot and create your own space. 

How will you use the winter break? 

Now it’s time to rest. In the New Year we start again so we have a good two weeks to prepare for the Aberdeen game but also to get our message even more across to the players, the way we want to play against different systems and situations. So we have more time to become better and improve our game.
