Fashion Sakala admits he cannot consider himself the answer to Rangers’ search for goals, but feels he has turned a corner after scoring against Motherwell, via the Glasgow Times.

Sakala struck his first Gers goal to open the scoring on Sunday as Steven Gerrard handed him his second start. Motherwell fought back in the second-half to equalise through Kaiyne Woolery, to maintain a two-point margin between the two sides.

Rangers have struggled to score prolifically in recent weeks after a flying start to the term. After netting three against Livingston and four at Ross County, they have hit four in their last three Premiership games. The Gers also lost 2-0 at home to Lyon in the Europa League.

Sakala accepts he is still on a learning curve after joining Rangers from KV Oostende this summer. But the Zambia international wants to help Gerrard’s side and add to his tally after turning a corner on Sunday.

“I think it was the beginning of me getting my confidence,” he said. “It was a good feeling. So I was very happy when I scored, but after the game I was disappointed because we didn’t win.

“I’m in a learning process. I can’t say I’m the answer, but as a striker I know my mission. And the mission is always to help the team. That’s something we always do in training. All the strikers are always working together to make sure that we deliver.”

Has Sakala turned a corner after his first Rangers goal?

Sakala caught Rangers’ attention with a strong Jupiler Pro League campaign with Oostende last season. The 24-year-old scored 13 times and offered three assists in 28 appearances, and added three goals in five play-off games.

He featured almost exclusively as a centre-forward in Belgium, but Sakala is happy to play elsewhere if it suits Rangers. Gerrard introduced the five-cap attacker off the bench for the final 15-minutes against Lyon as a wide-forward option last week.

“I would say I am a striker,” Sakala affirmed. “That is my position but, looking at how we play here, the front-three always change positions. I can play also as a winger, which is okay, I don’t have a problem to play as a winger. To play as a main striker or winger is both okay for me. I am not affected at all.”

Sakala headed home to open his Rangers account against Motherwell from the centre after 12-minutes on Sunday. Meeting Joe Ariba’s flick-on under the crossbar to open the scoring from a corner he won with a long-range strike. Gerrard will now hope it was just the start.
