Rangers star makes bold claim about Hamilton



Rangers’ returning midfielder Jordan Rossiter has been man enough to admit the side was a tad fortunate to say the least against Hamilton, and that the performance was certainly not as good as was needed, but that obviously the three points were invaluable.

Speaking after the match to Rangers’ official site, the 22-year old anchor, who equally admits he’s a mile off match fitness, revealed his belief that Rangers had been lucky, and it’s hard to disagree with such an assessment.

He said:

“We knew it was flat but we knew we hadn’t won away from home so the most important thing was the three points and we were maybe a bit lucky, we rode our luck at times."

Flat is the word, Jordan, and it’s the second time in less than a month that Steven Gerrard's men have produced such a poor display at an away ground, but thankfully this time the luck carried us through and got us a vital win, if maybe not the most deserved one.

He went on:


“It is a massive three points but we know it can be a lot, lot better."

Another understatement. We wouldn’t go as far as some have in saying Rangers were rank rotten, because it’s hard to be too castigating when you win 1-4 away from home on a plastic pitch, but the reality is Rangers were a chasm below what they’re capable of producing.

Hopefully the gathered momentum will help see better performances in due course.

  1. Kent's goal wasn't flat. Chipped the keeper, like a pro and knew it was a chip that was needed.. It was poor, but Hamilton as usual were 'upping' their game and the pitch. Could be better, room for improvement. Funny them being flat, always seems to coincide with when they're on artificial pitches :0), lol Man-up fellas. Unless the SFA ban the pitches, we're lumbered. Them, be our circumstances.

  2. 3 points was the most important thing. The performance was certainly uninspiring, and 4-1 flattered us although all 4 goals were excellently taken. But I do wonder, is it coincidence that our worst performances have been on plastic pitches. But Joe is right, it looks like we are stuck with them.

  3. Plastic pitches should be banned.

  4. I think unless or until plastic is banned, we just need to get on with it.

    But I think the combination of not having won away, despite being unlucky, with being on a plastic pitch we have made it clear we dislike will have played on their minds. Hopefully now the monkey is off their backs and they can dismiss plastic as an annoyance. They train on it every day so we need to man the fook up. We are better than this. Onwards and upwards
