McCall explains why playing at Ibrox is 'difficult' for Rangers right now

Rangers 3

Rangers boss Stuart McCall reflected on another disappointing night at Ibrox.

Rangers boss Stuart McCall has told the club's official website that his squad are finding it difficult to play at Ibrox right now after a 2-2 draw with Alloa.

It was another frustrating night for Rangers fans, as they saw eighth placed Alloa not only take the lead at Ibrox, but then snatch a point after Rangers had hauled themselves into the lead after two goals from Nicky Clark.

It was Rangers fifth draw in a row, and so far a change in management hasn't turned their fortunes around, with McCall still waiting for his first win since being appointed manager last week.

The last three of those draws have all come at Ibrox, and with their last home win coming back on January 3rd, it's clear that Rangers are having trouble in front of their own fans right now.

Even in front of a 29,000-strong crowd against Alloa, Rangers couldn't win the game - and McCall told the club's official website that there is an 'edgy' atmosphere around Ibrox right now, and it's making it difficult for Rangers to play.

"We can’t give goals away like we did and it is a difficult place to play right now, there is no doubt about that, there is edginess about the place," said McCall.

"Alloa aren’t coming here to lie down but we’ve got to be beating teams at the bottom like them at the moment and they have all been tight games against them this season," he added.

Rangers can now get away from Ibrox this weekend as they travel to face Hibernian in a crucial game. Hibs sit second, six points clear of Rangers - and if McCall's men are to chase them down, they need to get something out of that game at Easter Road.

Maybe a change of scenery will do the Rangers players good at a difficult time for them - and in an odd twist of fate, fans may well take another draw this weekend.
