Peter Lovenkrands reacts on Twitter to Rangers' play-off final defeat


The former Rangers forward took to Twitter after the loss to Motherwell.

Rangers icon Peter Lovenkrands has reacted surprisingly positively on Twitter to the club's Scottish Premiership play-off final defeat to Motherwell.

Stuart McCall's side lost 3-1 in the first leg of the tie that will make or break Rangers' hopes of earning promotion from the Scottish Championship ahead of next term.

Former Rangers forward Lovenkrands, however, took to social media with encouragement, suggesting their second leg at Fir Park will be 'hard' but not 'impossible.'

And the 35-year-old thinks the Gers can get a result on Sunday.

Lovenkrands' reactions were telling during the match, too, with the Rangers icon remaining positive at half-time but expressing disappointment with how McCall's side had performed before the break.

He also saw Darren McGregor's late header to make it 3-1 as a 'lifeline.'

It sounds as though Rangers could still do with Lovenkrands in the dressing room if not just for his sheer positivity.

Is the former Gers star right, however: do McCall's men have hope going into the second leg? Or is this tie simply beyond Rangers now that home advantage is also gone?
