Dominic Ball lauds Rangers' perfect start to the season

Rangers Gates

The Tottenham loanee made his first league appearance for the Gers on Sunday.

Rangers loanee Dominic Ball has spoken of the confidence coursing through the Gers’ dressing room and his expectations for a successful season ahead.

“With the squad of players we have, I think we go out and expect to win,” Ball told Rangers TV.

“We have that confidence, and that creates a fear factor with all the other teams we play.”

The 20-year old has been at Ibrox for five games and appeared three times, in what has been a solid start to his season-long loan spell.

Rangers have enjoyed a 100% start to the campaign and Ball has revealed the players are raring to go again following a short break.

“I can’t wait to be at Ibrox again – it’s an unbelievable place. We’ve come back in and smashed it in training after a few days off, and hopefully we’ll get the win,” he added.

The versatile defender made his league debut on Sunday, after two previous cup outings, coming in for the injured Lee Wallace.

“I was disappointed for Lee to get injured on Sunday, but it happens, and I was excited to get on the pitch and get the opportunity to play as that was my first league game,” said Ball.

The storming start made by Mark Warburton’s men has understandably got confidence soaring and the former Cambridge United loanee feels that this current Rangers side is a step up from the teams of recent seasons, adding:

“I’d heard about our results down there (St Mirren) last season, but this year, we’re a different breed.

“Every team we’ve played so far, we’ve blown out the water, so we need to keep doing that, keep working hard and winning.”

Dominic Ball’s words echoes the types of soundbites that have been emanating from Ibrox over the past few months and reflect the lofty expectations now prevalent at the club.

Warburton’s first summer in charge has been a roaring success and he now boasts a squad that could undoubtedly hold its own in the top flight - it’s now up to the former Brentford boss to make sure he gets them there.
