Rangers boss Stuart McCall was disappointed with his side's 3-0 loss at Queen of the South.

Rangers manager Stuart McCall has told the club's official website that his side lacked creativity against Queen of the South.

Rangers were hammered 3-0 tonight, with Queen of the South bringing an end to Rangers' recent fine form under new manager McCall.

Sunday's 2-1 win over Hearts not only gave McCall his third win in a row, but also gave fans renewed optimism that Rangers could be playing Scottish Premiership football again next season.

However, Rangers have come back down to earth with a bump tonight, losing 3-0 to Queen of the South in a deflating night for all connected with the club.

Speaking to the club's official website after the game, McCall admitted that he was disappointed with the result as he didn't feel the result told the story of the game.

"I’m naturally disappointed, especially with the manner of the defeat. I thought for large parts of the first half we had good control of the game," said McCall.

"I don’t think we deserved to go in at half time a goal down but we came out for the second half and within seconds we’re 2-0 down and the manner of the goal was poor from our point of view."

McCall added that he felt Rangers were lacking creativity, despite starting the game with in-form Haris Vuckic and winger David Templeton in the line-up.

"Then we huffed and puffed and they sat deep and hit us on the counter again, but it’s about scoring goals and we've not managed to do that tonight. I didn't think there had been that much in it, we just needed to up the tempo in the final third and be a bit more creative," he added.

Rangers now turn their attention to Sunday, when they face Raith Rovers at Ibrox in a vital game in the race for second spot in the Scottish Championship.
