Stuart McCall has given a frank assessment of his time as Rangers manager by stating all they’ve done is win three games, as reported by the Daily Record.
The Rangers manager explained that whilst he is happy with the positive mood around the team due to their recent performances, no-one in the Gers dressing room is expecting to coast into second place.
Hibernian’s win on Wednesday night moved them level on points with Rangers before their game against Queen of the South on Thursday night, with any potential slip-ups keeping Hibs within touching distance and undoing Rangers' recent progress.
McCall, who has had no conversations with the Rangers hierarchy regarding his contract, was clear that the Gers haven’t achieved anything yet with plenty of work still to be done.
“The only thing that the players have done is put the confidence back, playing at a level of performance that we know they can do but they have done nothing yet," he said.
“A lot of players in our dressing room are feeling good about themselves but not in a ‘job’s done’ kind of way or ‘we’re a couple of points above Hibs and we can coast and finish second’ kind of way.”
While McCall has attributed the team's performances to renewed confidence, there is still a lot to be said for his fresh tactical approach that has seen Rangers switch to a 3-5-2 for the games against Hibernian and Cowdenbeath, before reverting to 4-4-2 to successfully nullify the threat of Hearts.
It has been made clear by the Rangers boss that winning a few games isn’t enough for him to deem his tenure a success, with his sights firmly set on promotion back to the Scottish Premiership.
