McCall demands more from Nicky Law despite 'terrific' performance on Sunday

Rangers Gates

Rangers boss Stuart McCall has heaped praise on midfielder Nicky Law.

Rangers boss Stuart McCall has told the club's official website that whilst Nicky Law was 'terrific' against Raith Rovers, he still wants more from the midfielder.

Rangers bounced back from Thursday's 3-0 loss at Queen of the South by swatting aside Raith Rovers at Ibrox on Sunday.

Goals from Nicky Clark, Haris Vuckic and a brace from Nicky Law handed Rangers convincing 4-0 win, meaning they remain locked level on points with second placed Hibernian.

The star of the show was undoubtedly Law, whose two goals were vital for Rangers - yet despite his display in front of goal, it was fellow midfielder Andy Murdoch who won the man of the match award.

Law, 27, was a key player for new Rangers boss McCall during their time together at Motherwell, and McCall's arrival at Ibrox always seemed to point in the direction of Law being integral to his plans.

His performance against Raith Rovers underlined just why Law was so important for McCall at Motherwell, and whilst the Rangers boss heaped praise on the 'terrific' Law, he also said that he expects to see more from him - because he knows that he can do even better having already worked with him before. 

"Nicky is a good finisher, as are Haris and Deano. We have good footballers in there and I thought wee Murdy was terrific again," said McCall. "They helped us do what we wanted to do against Raith - we wanted boys in there who would pass about and get in and around their box and take shots."

"Law has got that and he could have had a hat-trick when one flashed across the face of goal and he just missed it. But I still want more from him and I think he has more in his locker but he got two goals against Raith and they were good goals," he added.

With a playoff campaign on the horizon, Law will be relied upon heavily in the coming weeks to try and fire Rangers back to the top flight of Scottish football - and he's under the perfect manager to do be an influential player at Ibrox.
