Rangers defender Dominic Ball shares dressing room discussion after Kilmarnock tie

Rangers played out a goalless draw with Kilmarnock at Ibrox in the Scottish Cup on Saturday afternoon.

Rangers defender Dominic Ball has revealed on the club’s official website what the players discussed in the dressing room after the match against Kilmarnock.

The Gers played out a goalless draw with Kilmarnock at Ibrox in Glasgow in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup on Saturday afternoon.

Ball, who played against Kilmarnock in a holding midfield role, has opened up on the discussion the players had after the game.

“In the changing room afterwards, the lads were saying that it was good to get another clean sheet, but it just wasn’t our day attacking-wise today,” the Tottenham Hotspur-owned player told Rangers’ official website.

“We had loads of chances and just not finished them, and it’s the first game we haven’t scored in all season so it was a bit disappointing. The first thing a few of the lads said is it wasn’t our day today.”

Rangers were probably unlucky not to win the tie, as James Tavernier fired against the post in the first half and Danny Wilson headed against the crossbar.

Kilmarnock finished the game with 10 men due to the dismissal of Kallum Higginbotham in the 89th minute.

Over the course of the 90 minutes at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon, the Gers had 56% of the possession, took 19 shots of which just four were on target, and earned 12 corners.

Visitors Kilmarnock had 44% of the possession, took five shots of which two were on target, and earned three corners.

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment, while Kilmarnock are currently second from bottom in the Scottish Premiership.
