Gers beginning to click — Lee
RANGERS skipper Lee Wallace admits the Light Blues deserved to be criticised for their “humiliating” start to the season — but now believes they are inching towards the perfect performance.
Pe d ro C a i x i n h a ’s new-look side were l eft stunned back in July when they were dumped out of the Europa League by Luxembourg minnows Progres Niederkorn.
Their league campaign also got off to a shaky start as they dropped points at home to both Hibs and Hearts.
But after picking up back-to-back wins against Ross County and Dundee, Wallace feels things are starting to click into place.
Speaking ahead of tonight’s trip to Partick Thistle, the Gers captain said: “We absolutely didn’t want the European result to happen but the early season criticism is now out the way. We’ve responded well to the criticism and the embarrassment and humiliation that we deserved at the time.
“But with t he group g elling, t he new guys learning the language and the culture, bringing their families across, getting used t o how we train, getting used to the city, I think that i s us all now moving forward positively.
“It’s a long way to go but we’re all looking forward. We’re taking t he small steps we need to be taking.
“There’s a l ot of hard work to go, a lot of gelling to be done but we’re content with how things are going. We’re continually working hard on the training ground to get these things going.
“The l ast t wo results have been great and now we want to keep that momentum.”
