Lee Wallace has demanded that Rangers show more aggression in front of goal after the draw with Hamilton Academical, speaking to the club’s official website.

The Gers kicked off their Scottish Premiership campaign on Saturday as they hosted Hamilton at Ibrox.

It proved to be a frustrating afternoon for them, as they needed a goal from striker Martyn Waghorn to level the scores and seal a point from the game.

They struggled to create much throughout the game, with Joey Barton coming closest to a winner with a long-range effort after Waghorn's equaliser. 

And Wallace has demanded that they act more dominant and aggressive in and around the box moving forward.

“We pride ourselves on dominating the ball, it is a big aspect in how we play, everyone knows that,” he told the club’s official website.

“I think we could turn that into being a bit more dominant and aggressive in and around the box. We dominated the game but it is putting that domination into final-third chances [that counts].”

It will now be interesting to see if Mark Warburton looks to fix that issue by making further moves in the transfer window.

Kenny Miller and Waghorn were both quiet for much of the game, with the Hamilton defence comfortably keeping them at bay.

Their defensive strategy is one that others are likely to follow, and perhaps Warburton will target someone who can add something a little different to try and counteract that.
