Tom Walsh: Rangers can play with more freedom against Queen of the South

Walsh believes Rangers can benefit from leading their play-off tie with Queen of the South.

Speaking to the official Rangers website, Tom Walsh outlined his belief that the Light Blues will utilise the same game plan against Queen of the South as they did last week, but with more freedom.

The young midfielder said: “We will have our game plan and we will go out and do that at the weekend. I think that we will look to do that again.

“We are under no illusions that we are going to face a tough match, but now that we are leading in the tie, we might be able to go out and play with a bit more freedom at Ibrox and to really enjoy it and hopefully that will bring a good result.”

Rangers lead Queens by a 2-1 scoreline from the first leg, a game in which Dean Shiels netted the winner at Palmerston to secured the advantage for Stuart McCall’s men.

They head into the second leg at Ibrox expected to see through the victory, and secure a play-off semi-final tie with Hibernian.

Admittedly Queens pose a tough threat, but with the first leg advantage of their side, McCall should have enough about him to coach his men through to a victory.

Since appointed as head coach, McCall has brought a new look philosophy to the club, and the winning run he has started is impressive - Rangers have lost just one of his 11 games in charge.

He will be sure to guarantee this philosophy continues into the game with Queens, and if that is seen through, for the rest of the play-off campaign.

Rangers may have endured a tough season at times this term, but with McCall at the helm, it is hard to see how they cannot secure passage back to the top flight at the end of this season.
