Gers be­gin­ning to click — Lee

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

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.”
