Rangers' Stuart McCall puts positive spin on drawing with Livingston

Rangers Gates

Stuart McCall has said a point is enough to put Rangers' fate in their own hands after 1-1 with Livingston.

Stuart McCall remained positive in the wake of the 1-1 draw against Livingston, insisting everything is in Rangers’ hands to the Glasgow Evening Times.

Rangers came from behind to draw against Livi who are currently bottom of the Scottish Championship, with a point enough to move Rangers into second.

The Gers went behind to a Myles Hippolyte free-kick that sailed past Cammy Bell early in the second half before Marius Zaliukas scored with a glancing header two minutes later to bring the scores level.

Speaking after the game, McCall explained that whilst he wanted a victory against Livingston a point was enough to put Rangers in the driving seat going into the end of the season.

"I am disappointed that we have not won the game, but we will take a point and it is in our hands,” he began.

"We have got to go and win the next three games, possibly, who knows? On Saturday, we have got to go and win."

The game – which was Rangers’ game in hand – presented them with the opportunity to pull three points in front of Hibs, but the result meant only a one-point cushion, with the opportunity of extending the lead to four points against Dumbarton on Saturday whilst Hibs play in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park.

A point was enough for Rangers to take control of their own destiny but means that they need to win their remaining games or face being overtaken by Hibernian, who will have a game in hand to play because of their cup duties.

McCall has played down the prospect of having to play six play-off games but will surely want to avoid them given his team's current difficulty in producing consistent performances.

The Light Blues would need to string together six good performances to get promoted if they finished third, which is something they haven’t done since October when they won eight games in a row.
