Stuart McCall’s message to Rangers players ahead of today’s game

Rangers will take on Queen of the South at Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership playoffs today.

Rangers manager Stuart McCall has told the club’s official website that he wants his players to play the way they usually do today.

The Gers will take on the Queen of the South in the second leg of the Scottish Premiership quarter-final playoff tie at Ibrox in Glasgow this afternoon.

McCall’s side will head into the second leg with a 2-1 lead from the first leg played away from home at Palmerston Park in Dumfries last weekend.

Rangers will be favourites to win today, and McCall has told his players to play their usual game.

“We have put in some really strong performances and have been averaging two goals a game,” the 50-year-old told Rangers’ official website.

“So I always believe in this group of players that we can go out, especially on the pitch at Ibrox, and play good attacking football and create opportunities.

“The message will be to go out and play like you have been at home and though we drew against Falkirk; the first and last 20 minutes were terrific. We will treat this as we have treated all of our home games and we will go out there to win.”

Playing at home will give Rangers an advantage, but Queens’ chances cannot be written off.

Although James Fowler’s side have a one-goal deficit, if they strike early, then they will make it tough for the home team.

However, Rangers have some of the best fans in Scotland, and one suspects that all of them inside Ibrox tomorrow will be cheering on the players and making it tough for the opposition.
