Dominic Ball outlines Rangers players’ mindset ahead of Hibernian clash

Dominic Ball is targeting three points when Rangers face Hibernian at Ibrox in the Scottish Championship next week.

Rangers defender Dominic Ball has told Sky Sports that he and his teammates are ready for next week’s big clash against Hibernian at home.

The Gers will take on Hibernian at Ibrox in Glasgow in the Scottish Championship on December 28.

Ball, who joined Rangers from Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, seems confident that Mark Warburton’s side will pick up all three points from the encounter.

"It's a bit disappointing that we are not further ahead after a few poor results recently, but nothing is ever straightforward, you are not going to win every game and go unbeaten for the whole season,” the 20-year-old told Sky Sports.

“So maybe a few recent poor performances are just a little setback. It's still only Christmas so three points against Hibs is what we are going to go out and get and it will be massive for us just to push on from there.”

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 41 points from 17 matches.

The Glasgow giants are level on points with Hibernian, who are currently second in the standings due to an inferior goal difference.

Warburton’s side are not in good form at the moment and will head into next Monday’s encounter on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Falkirk away from home at the Falkirk Stadium.

Ball’s comments suggest that he and his Rangers teammates are not too worried about past results and are confident of getting the better of Hibernian at Ibrox.
