Stuart McCall reacts to Rangers’ win against Raith Rovers

Rangers FC

Rangers are guaranteed a place in the Scottish Championship playoffs.

Rangers manager Stuart McCall has told the club’s official website that he was not entirely happy with his side’s performance against Raith Rovers at home today.

The Gers returned to winning ways in the Scottish Championship this afternoon with a 4-0 hammering of Raith at Ibrox.

Nicky Clark put Rangers in the lead after just six minutes, and Newcastle United-owned attacking midfielder Haris Vuckic doubled the advantage in the 27th minute.

Nicky Law added a third after his initial effort hit the bar in the 72nd minute and scored another with a smart strike on 88 minutes.

It was a brilliant win from Rangers and a wonderful performance, but McCall still wanted more from his players.

“Yeah it’s a pleasing result and a clean sheet, which is important, but for 20-25 minutes of the second-half we were a bit sloppy and casual and let them into the game,” the Scot told Rangers’ official website.

“I think we can do better in certain areas and we have to set ourselves standards and keep them up regardless of what the score is.

“We did OK and it sounds a bit silly after a 4-0 win but I think we can still do a lot better but it’s job done and confidence will be restored after the other night.”

The win means that Rangers are guaranteed of a playing in the Scottish Championship playoffs, but they still have work to do to finish second in the league table behind champions Heart of Midlothian.

The Glasgow-based outfit are currently third in the league standings with 61 points from 32 matches, level on points with Hibernian, who are second.

Although Rangers are behind Hibs on goal difference, they have a game in hand and can certainly finish second.
