Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

Clyde boss Barry Fer­gu­son has slammed his team’s sec­ond half dis­play as they were beaten by ri­vals Queen’s Park 2-0 on Satur­day.

Although the for­mer Rangers cap­tain said his side were“light years” ahead in the first half, he was highly crit­i­cal of their sec­ond half ef­forts.

He also said his side should have been two or three goals up in the first half, but sec­ond half strikes from Queen’s McKer­non and Woods se­cured the points for the visi­tors.

He told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site: “That sec­ond half was not ac­cept­able, but they know that.

“We dom­i­nated the full first half, though they came into it a wee bit to­wards the end. We were light years ahead of them in the first half.

“Fair play to them in the sec­ond half, they were the bet­ter team.

“That wasn’t my team in the sec­ond half – it’s not what I ex­pect from them. They are bet­ter than that.

“They felt sorry for them­selves, we were so much on top and should have been two or three goals up.

“I said to them at the half time break, ‘You’ve got to keep go­ing’, but the sec­ond half we were flat and it wasn’t ac­cept­able.”

So far in League Two, Clyde have three points af­ter their open­ing vic­tory against Stir­ling Al­bion at Forth­bank.

How­ever, next on the agenda for the Bully Wee is Mon­trose at Links Park this Satur­day (Au­gust 22).

The Gable Endies will be high in con­fi­dence af­ter beat­ing Ar­broath 3-0 at home on Satur­day.

The for­mer Scot­land cap­tain is look­ing for a“re­ac­tion ”from his team and has made it clear what their fate will be if they don’t per­form.

He added: “I need a re­ac­tion. If I don’t get a re­ac­tion they won’t be here. I’ve got a good group of boys, but that wasn’t them in the sec­ond half.”
