Haris Vuckic; "That's real Ibrox"

Rangers’ Slovenian forward Haris Vuckic was one of the heroes for the Ibrox side, and he was absolutely delighted the side progressed;

“We are pleased we came through. We are now focused on the Hibs (match) – we’ll get in a recovery and be ready for Wednesday.”

He urged a note of caution about how much ‘energy’ Rangers players wasted in fighting so hard for the draw;

“First half, three or four good chances, if we take them, it is easier to play then you can sort of relax a little as well and you don’t waste so much energy. But if you don’t score there’s always a good chance you’re going to concede. We did that.”

But he was equally pleased at how they endured and fought together.

“We showed great spirit and great togetherness straight in the second half, and he went and he (manager Stuart McCall) said ‘you have to score’ and we did it through Lee Wallace and it was a great goal.”

This was also Vuckic’s first appearance at a packed Ibrox and he was almost overawed by the crowd;

“Ibrox was amazing and when we came out I had a look around and to see so many people that’s real; that’s real Ibrox and hopefully again on Wednesday a full house when it’s always easier to play and get the crowd behind you.”

On his amazing goal line clearance;

“I’m very pleased that I’ve been on the right place at the right time, sometimes you have to defend and not just attack but like I said I’m pleased that we came through.”

He poked a little fun at Bell’s height regarding that clearance;

“I just saw that Cammy Bell was going to be too short when the striker shot on goal but I’m just happy that I was there and cleared the ball.”

On preparation for Wednesday’s clash with Hibs;

“It’s going to be harder for us (to prepare for Wednesday), we wasted a lot of energy but now it’s all about the right foods, the right drinks, to get recovered as quick as possible and get ready for the game.”

But he saw a positive side to Hibs having a break and Rangers being up to match speed with so many games recently;

“Hibs’ break is an advantage for them, but as well we can put it positively in that we had two games and our fitness is better, our match fitness.”

One can only hope Rangers can hold onto the Newcastle loanee.


  1. we need ibrox to be rocking when we play hibs like the night we played parma

  2. Hopefully Rangers will come out and play there A game Wednesday, I think they will need it

  3. We also need a team that can beat Hibs not Parma, changed days J

  4. Yes changed days indeed. We now accept the sfa being run by tims and we now accept our country run by nationalists with no respect for anyone but nationalists. Some of us even vote for them!'!!! Yes changed days. Makes you wonder why we are fucked
