I’m delighted with the win and the way we played, but have to ask, where has that been in all the other games, yes, we were guilty of making mistakes and they punished us, but I’m talking about the attitude and spirit. They had most possession but we had the hunger. This needs to be carried forward to next season, and I will be glad to see the back of some non tryers, and hope our new players can manage the weight of the jersey. Well done today Rangers, I can smile again.
I’d started to forget what it felt like to pump that lot, but not anymore. Bring on the summer revolution ❤️🤍
